It may be obvious that your injury is directly related to your job, yet you may still find it difficult to obtain the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. That’s because workers’ compensation insurance companies – and even your own employer – will often stop at nothing to downplay the seriousness of your accident, injury or illness. When your future is at stake, we don’t think that’s fair.
Workers’ compensation coverage is part of owning a business in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania. Injured workers in Philadelphia are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits by law. But your employer and the insurance carrier may try to tell you otherwise. Attorney Jaffe is a tough negotiator and accomplished litigator who has the experience necessary to recover the compensation you deserve. Leave the details to us. We’re ready to protect your rights.
Philadelphia Social Security Disability Attorney
Social Security is much more than a retirement program. It’s a disability program designed to provide financial benefits to workers who have been injured or developed an illness. From those who sustain workplace back injuries, to car accident victims to people who have developed a serious illness such as cancer, these benefits may be essential to your recovery and help get you back on your feet.
In many instances, hard-working Philadelphians don’t pursue the SSD benefits they’ve paid into for the majority of their lives. Applying for disability benefits can be a complex, confusing process. A number of common mistakes can delay or prevent an SSD application from being accepted. Furthermore, it can be difficult to understand the difference between Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income, leading many applicants to give up altogether.
You’ve worked hard. You’ve paid into the Social Security system. We believe you have a right to collect the benefits you deserve. The Law Offices of Richard A. Jaffe, LLC is ready to help. From assisting with your initial application to appealing a denied SSD or SSI claim to the appropriate court, we provide aggressive legal representation throughout all aspects of the claims process.
