Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Getting injured on the job can be one of the most stressful experiences in life. Injured workers often find themselves quickly overwhelmed by an avalanche of confusing paperwork and non-stop phone calls from the employer and their insurance company. To make matters worse, employers frequently give injured workers advice that seems like a good idea at the time, but in reality, is only in the best interest of the employer and their insurance company’s bottom line.

Almost every worker in Pennsylvania is covered by the provisions of the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act.

This law provides injured workers with a range of benefits, including wage loss and payment of medical bills for treating work injuries. That means that if you’ve been hurt on the job, you likely are eligible for benefits.

Common types of workplace accidents include:

  • Overexertion, including excessive lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, carrying and throwing
  • Slip and falls
  • Bodily reaction injuries, including injuries caused by bending, reaching, climbing, standing, sitting, slipping or tripping without falling
  • Being struck by an object
  • Repetitive-motion injuries, which are injuries that result from repeated stress or strain on the body
  • Vehicular accidents
  • Being caught by or compressed in a machine
  • Assault or workplace violence

If you, a family member, or co-worker have been injured in a workplace accident, we can help.
Our attorneys will meet with you to discuss the facts and circumstances of your case and help you determine how to proceed. Our initial consultation is always free of charge.

We Obtain Relief

We fight for a maximum recovery to compensate the victim for all aspects of their injuries.

Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo protects victims of workplace injuries

In workers’ compensation cases, the injured worker may be entitled to:

  • Medical benefits
  • Wage loss benefits
  • Specific loss benefits
  • Lump sum payment (Compromise and release)

Even though the law provides injured workers with benefits, employers and their insurance companies often try to pay as little as possible. They often issue paperwork that is incomplete, inaccurate, or does not fairly reflect the injuries and wages. They may try to rush injured workers back to work before they are fully recovered, or pay fewer benefits than those to which the worker is entitled. Some wrongfully seek to pay no benefits at all.

The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation system and its laws can be difficult to understand and navigate. Employers and insurance companies start at an advantage, and try to use their significant resources to get a leg up on injured employees.

What Our Clients Have To Say

I used Alexis Berg for my workman’s comp case. Alexis was very professional and helpful throughout my whole case and answered every question or concerns I had even while she was on vacation, her office staff was also very helpful. I was more then happy and confident having her represent me and would recommend her to anyone looking for someone that would fight tooth and nail for them.

I was represented by Alexis Berg-Townsend for a Worker’s Compensation injury. She always returned my calls and emails promptly. During proceedings she represented me at a level of incredible professionalism. She truly understood my concerns and cared about me and my family. I could not have asked for better representation. The working class is privileged to have an attorney of her caliber watching their back!

I would be lost, broken and penniless were it not for the help, guidance, hard work and persistence of Alexis Berg, Diane Anderson and Cathy Lasko. I had gotten injured on a job for a huge company well-known for being difficult with its workers on insurance claims. I was running out of options and time when I reached out to Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo. When I first met with Alexis she recommended we start paperwork for Social Security Disability as a back-up. Thank goodness I took her advice. We won the Comp case. I had my surgery but without the Social Security, I would have lost my house and most everything else. Diane and Cathy are like the dynamic duo. Anytime I had a question, needed help with paperwork or just needed some reassurance they never let me down. I recommend the entire team. They have truly been lifesavers for me.
