Philadelphia Workers' Compensation Attorney Dan Jaffe
Workplace injuries happen suddenly. A jobsite accident. A motor vehicle crash. Defective tools, machinery, or products. These are just a few of the many ways employees are hurt at work in the line of duty. Injuries can vary dramatically. They might include head and neck injuries, heart attacks, knee injuries, low back injuries, repetitive trauma injuries, shoulder injuries and spinal injuries. Regardless of how the accident occurred, or the type of injury suffered, in that moment, a worker's life is often changed forever. After this life-altering event, and most times before the healing is complete, the employee must deal with the workers' compensation system.
Injured workers need someone on their side
Injured workers need an experienced attorney who will explain the Workers' Compensation laws, 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 injured workers. We never represent employers or insurance companies. We fight for you. We fight for your rights.
Workers' compensation is insurance employers must purchase to insure that if an employee is hurt on the job, he or she will receive lost wages and have his or her medical expenses paid. Under the Pennsylvania Worker's Compensation Act, employees are entitled to a wide range of benefits, including medical, trauma and rehabilitation expenses, wage losses, disfigurement, scarring, and death benefits. The workers' compensation system is complicated, however, and includes many rules designed to confuse and intimidate wronged workers. Injured employees are forced to deal with company doctors, private investigators, vocational counselors, nurses and, of course, insurance companies whose only goal is to cut costs and get employees back to work quickly - even when they cannot do their old jobs. Unable to do their previous job, injured workers may be instructed to accept less desirable and lower paying positions that are not in the employee's best interest, but are intended to save the company's bottom line.
Over the course of 30 years, Dan has handled countless workers' compensation cases and is prepared for whatever an employer's insurance company might do. Dan knows that on the job injuries 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 workers' compensation benefits, including all of the wage losses and medical expenses that his clients are entitled to.
Dan goes one step further
Who else is at fault? Defective machinery? Faulty design? Injuries caused by outside vendors? On the job auto accidents? Negligent third party companies? These are just some of the additional factors that Dan Jaffe will investigate. Dan leaves nothing uncovered. If any company or person besides the employer is responsible for his clients' injuries, Dan pursues claims against those parties so that his clients receive all of the compensation they are entitled to for their pain and suffering and past and future wage losses.
Dan Jaffe evaluates and handles every case personally. Dan knows which expert to retain to prove his clients' cases and to obtain the best results. There is no charge for a consultation and Dan never charges a fee in a workers' compensation or personal injury matter until he makes a recovery for his clients.
