Philadelphia Construction and On-The-Job Injury Attorney Dan Jaffe
Injuries happen all the time at construction sites and other job sites. The most common types of jobsite accidents occur because of falling objects, workers falling from equipment, ladders and other structures. Construction accidents also may be caused by motor vehicle accidents, defective equipment or operator error. The injuries that occur vary dramatically - from strains and sprains to broken bones to head and brain injuries to electrocutions and to death. In fact, there were 5,702 fatal work injuries in the United States in 2005 according to the U.S. Department of Labor Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries.
Regardless how the accident happened, an on-the-job injury can easily change your life and your family's life. Plus, the laws involving workplace accidents are complicated and almost always involve the workers' compensation laws as well as numerous state and federal laws and regulations. To help you navigate through all of the laws and rules that apply to these claims, you need Attorney Dan Jaffe, who knows and understands the system.
Workplace Accident Victims need someone on their side
On-the-job accident victims need an experienced attorney who will explain all of the laws and regulations, answer questions, provide advice, and fight the insurance companies to assure their rights are fully protected and they receive all that they are entitled to.
At the Law Offices of Daniel M. Jaffe, we only represent persons injured in accidents. We never represent employers or insurance companies. We fight for you. We fight for your rights.
That is why it is so important to have a lawyer on your side who can explain the ins and outs of these matters. For example, even if an accident happened at work and you cannot sue your employer, you may be able to make a claim or sue the party responsible for your injuries.
Regardless of the type of workplace accident you have, the system is complicated, and includes many laws and rules designed to confuse and intimidate injured victims. Injured workers may be forced to deal with doctors, private investigators, nurses and, of course, insurance companies, whose only goal is to cut costs and prevent injured accident victims from receiving the medical care they need.
Over the course of 30 years, Dan has handled countless on-the-job cases and is prepared for whatever an insurance company or defendant might do. Dan knows that injuries from construction and on-the-job accident are serious, may become chronic, and can dramatically affect his clients' ability to return to work and life as he or she knew it. Dan fights to obtain all of the benefits, including all of the wage losses and medical expenses, his clients are entitled to.
