There are a few things that every workplace injury victim should know about his or her rights under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act:

  • The law is on your side. In comparison to other states, Pennsylvania has one of the fairest workers’ compensation systems. The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act allows for lost wage benefits and medical benefits for the work injury.


  • Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier should be responsible for the payment of any reasonable, necessary and causally related medical expenses associated with your work injury.

Our team is ready to help you pursue maximum workers’ compensation. Since 1936, we have been dedicated to helping Pennsylvania’s workers. Our longevity can be attributed to the fact that we are willing to aggressively pursue the needs of each of our clients. We will engage in that pursuit without ever losing sight of your individual needs.


Our Story

Our law firm, currently known as Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo, was founded in 1936 by the Honorable Isadore Krasno. Isadore was not only a trial lawyer, but also a workers’ compensation referee and judge for nearly 45 years. His goal was to protect the rights of injured workers and pass these ideals to his son and law partner, Lester Krasno. Isadore’s path was to serve as a workers’ compensation judge, and he devoted his life to the injured worker.


As a trial lawyer, Lester handled criminal, domestic and civil trials. However, Lester realized that his calling, like his father, resided in protecting the injured worker. For three decades, Lester has continued to aggressively represent his clients, taking on insurance carriers and employers who try to strip the injured and disabled of their rights under the Workers’ Compensation Act. Lester has handled tens of thousands of workers’ compensation cases and won tens of millions of dollars in awards for his clients.


Our lawyers are interested in building something a bit stronger than an attorney-client relationship. We want to build a person-person relationship. We want to make it clear to you that we care about your situation, and we want to do everything within our power to get what is right for you.
