Our attorneys provide effective, professional and compassionate representation for clients injured as the result of the careless or negligent behavior of others. We have considerable experience with personal injury and wrongful death matters including:
- Automobile, motorcycle, watercraft or truck accidents
- Injuries caused by unsafe property conditions
- Dangerous or defective products cases
- Negligence or workers’ compensation claims for injuries suffered at work
We help personal injury clients recover damages and lost wages whether from minor injuries or more severe, disabling conditions. Also, our attorneys can usually help secure payments for medical and rehabilitation expenses while settlement negotiations are in progress or while the case is being litigated.
We also represent the surviving families of persons killed in motor vehicle and other accidents. Our lawyers carefully investigate and document all elements of the loss to make sure that no portion is overlooked in the preparation and presentation of the claim.
Our attorneys also help those who have been injured on the job or who are unable to work due to medical or psychological conditions:
Our attorneys understand the difficulties associated with an injury that prevents an individual from working for a long period of time. Although Pennsylvania workers compensation laws exist to help injured workers and to avoid lawsuits, it is important to have the assistance of a qualified attorney who understands how the system works including key filing deadlines, knows what an employee can recover and has experience appearing before workers compensation judges. Such advocacy helps to ensure an injured worker’s rights are protected throughout the entire process and that the maximum amount of compensation is received.
Social Security Disability
When an individual is unable to work due to a disability, legal representation can increase the likelihood of being approved for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). State and federal programs provide income and medical care to workers who are disabled due to medical or psychological conditions that prevent them from functioning on a job for more than a year. The requirements for a disability determination under these programs are very specific and highly complex and the application process can be overwhelming. If an individual is unaware or misinformed, it could jeopardize approval to receive benefits. Our experienced Social Security Disability (SSD) attorneys assist individuals with building a strong case in order to get the income and medical care they deserve.
