Montgomery County, located northwest of Philadelphia, is one of the Commonwealth's largest and most prosperous counties. Certainly, it's home to many commuters who work in Philadelphia, but Montco is also a major employment center in its own right. Large business parks in Blue Bell, Horsham, King of Prussia and elsewhere employ thousands of workers from all over eastern Pennsylvania. Many residents work in healthcare, finance or in one of the county's many school districts and institutes of higher learning.
Accidents can happen in any workplace, and while most injuries happen fast, the consequences can go on for some time. Even minor injuries such as sprains and strains can make it difficult to do your job or care for your loved ones. More serious injuries resulting from work vehicle collisions, falls and other major accidents could leave you with expensive medical bills or even a long-term disability.
Pennsylvania state law allows injured workers to claim compensation for medical costs incurred due to an on-the-job injury, including hospital and doctors' visits, prescription medicine, orthotics, in-home nursing care, rehabilitation and modifications to your home or vehicle. You may also be entitled to compensation for lost wages, including back pay and wages from a second job. However, to collect those benefits, you'll need to go through an extensive and often misunderstood process.
We can help. At the Law Offices of Richard A. Jaffe, we've been working with injured Montgomery County workers for many years. Our legal team will guide you through every stage of your workers' compensation claim, and we'll negotiate with your employer and their insurance on your behalf. We'll handle all of the heavy lifting so that you can focus on recovering from your injury.
