Pennsylvania Workplace Accidents Attorney Representing the Injured in Workers' Compensation Claims
How can you calculate the cost of the loss of an eye? How can you calculate the "value" of an arm crushed in a construction accident when working construction is all you have ever known? This inhumane practice is the way that workers' compensation works. It puts a value on things where cost is truly impossible to calculate. What can you do to protect your own rights in difficult situations like these?

Injuries and Workers' Compensation — Get Treatment Immediately
Did you suffer an injury to the back, neck or spine while working with patients at a hospital or working on a construction site? Did you suffer an injury to the knee, shoulder, wrist, elbow or other joint when you twisted to perform your job, or put too much weight on it throughout the workday?
It is important to seek treatment right away, even if you think they are minor. Receiving full workers' compensation benefits requires that you show a direct connection between an accident at work and the injury. Waiting too long to seek treatment may give your employer cause to doubt your claim and deny the benefits you need. Additionally, seeking treatment for workplace injuries right away may prevent long-term damage.
Mr. Jaffe can help you no matter what type of on-the-job injury you suffered:
- Head injuries
- Back, spine and neck injuries including injuries to L (lumbar) 4 and L 5, and C (cervical spine) 5, 6 and 7 and to the thoracic spine
- Injuries to the knees, shoulders, wrists, elbows and other joints
- Nerve damage such as carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy and other acute or chronic pain, including complex regional pain syndrome
- Burns, facial disfigurement and amputations, and electrocution
- Pre-existing conditions that are aggravated by a work injury
