Each day, millions of Americans go to work to earn their living. Of these millions, not a single one assumes that they will be hurt on the job, and yet thousands find themselves the victims of workplace injury or illness on a daily basis.
Occupational injuries and illness can have devastating effects, both physical and financial. Many people are stripped of their ability to work, and yet face mounting medical bills and expenses. The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act was meant to protect the injured workers of our state by offering medical and lost wage benefits, but navigating the application process can be frustrating and fruitless.
As an injured worker, you have certain rights that must be protected and upheld. At The Boles Firm, our attorneys boast over 25 years of experience helping injured Pennsylvanians get the compensation that they deserve following a workplace accident. If you have been denied benefits, or if you could benefit from legal counsel as you pursue your workers’ compensation claim, call The Boles Firm today to schedule a free consultation. Our certified workers’ compensation specialists are standing by to discuss your case.
Who We Help
Each job comes with its own set of risks and dangers, and if you have suffered an injury or illness as a result of your work environment, you may be covered by the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act. If you have been significantly injured in the scope of your employment, we may be able to help you pursue compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and more.
We have helped men and women throughout the greater Philadelphia area pursue workers’ compensation claims from all stages of the application and appeals process, including those from the following industries:
Healthcare workers are regularly faced with physically challenging work as well as hazardous materials. If you have been injured while working in a hospital, nursing home, health clinic, or residential home, you are not alone—let us help you in your pursuit of workers’ compensation benefits under Pennsylvania’s workers’ comp laws.
Philadelphia is a central hub for many transportation workers, from aviation to trucking. Whether you were injured in turbulence or while lifting a particularly heavy piece of cargo, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Large transportation companies often place a lot of pressure on injured employees to return to work before they are ready, and may be reluctant to acknowledge your work-related injury. Make sure that your rights are protected by having a powerful legal advocate on your side.
The construction industry boasts one of the highest work-injury rates in the country, and it is easy to see why. With important safety codes, potentially hazardous job conditions, and numerous third parties involved on each site, there are many things that could cause an accident or injury. If you have been hurt on the job, let our workplace accident attorneys fight for your right to workers’ compensation benefits.

Working with complex machinery and hazardous chemicals can be dangerous when proper precautions and safety measures are not taken by everyone in the facility.
