    Protection Against Retaliation

    The PA Workers’ Compensation Act prohibits employers from retaliating against you for filing a work injury claim. Any such attempt by your employer is unlawful and discriminatory and can be reported to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry.

    What Is PA Workers’ Compensation and Do I Qualify For It?

    The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation is a state-wide system of workers’ insurance designed to compensate injured workers in cases of occupational injuries and illnesses.

    It’s a no-fault system and provides relief to injured workers in Scranton, PA regardless of who was at fault.

    You qualify for it, if:

    • You were an employee and not an independent contractor
    • The injury or illness was work-related.

    So, if you are dealing with an employer or insurer who claims you cannot be compensated because the injury is your own fault, they are misinterpreting the law. A qualified work comp attorney in Scranton, PA can quickly put things to right.

    "[They] did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time."

    "I recently had a work related injury and was receiving Workers' Compensation (medical benefits only). Soon after I was fired, so I contacted Paul Silver at Cardamone Law Firm who did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time. Paul and his assistant Shirley always responded to any questions I had about the case in a very short amount of time. Thank you for helping me with this difficult case."

    "Mike Cardamone is amazing. He is "hands down" one of the best lawyers I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He is very kind, understanding, knowledgeable in his field, always very thorough and helpful. He was extremely professional and someone who truly cares about his clients. I felt completely at ease with him. He was a pleasure to work with, explained everything in detail, as well as answered all my questions with knowledge and care. If you want someone you can trust, who communicates every step of the way, will fight for you and make sure you win your case, he is it! I will refer all my family and friends to him. Thank you so much Mike, for everything. I appreciate all your hard work and dedication in helping me."

    "Without a doubt YOU are the best!!! Every person who is in the horrible position of being injured at work should have someone as kind, compassionate and knowledgeable as you on their side. You never once made me feel like I was one of a hundred other clients. I always knew you had my back! You answered calls and emails at all hours. You fought every fight for me so I only had to worry about getting well. Behind your nice, calm face there’s a pit bull ready to take on any employer or judge. I can never thank you enough."
