Philadelphia’s Lawyer For Injured Workers

The Workers' Compensation Attorney You Want In Your Corner

The Law Offices of Richard A. Jaffe isn’t one of those impersonal call centers that treats injured workers like a number. When you call our law firm, the person on the other end of the phone actually listens to you. That’s because Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyer Richard A. Jaffe genuinely cares about your needs and wants to help you get a positive outcome in your case.

All too often, injured workers call the bigger law firms for help, but those firms are more like a call center instead of a law firm. You’ll get someone on the phone who’s uninterested and unconcerned about what really happened to you. They only care about taking down your information and passing you off to someone else as quickly as possible so they can get on to the next call. By the time you realize your workers’ compensation case is in the wrong hands, it’s already too late to do something about it.

When you’ve been injured on the job in Philadelphia, workers’ compensation lawyer Richard A. Jaffe can handle your case and help you get the benefits you’re entitled to. Since the early ‘90s, hurt workers in Philadelphia and southern New Jersey have put their trust in the Law Offices of Richard A. Jaffe to advocate for their needs and aggressively fight for their best interests. Find out how a knowledgeable and experienced Philadelphia workers’ compensation attorney can help you. Contact us today for your free consultation.

If you’ve sustained a job-related injury or illness, you’re probably looking for answers to a lot of the same questions that millions of other hurt workers in the U.S. have. While the workers’ compensation process can feel overwhelming, it’s important to remember that you have rights. Unfortunately, many employers and insurance companies give injured workers a hard time and make them bend over backwards and jump through hoops just to receive minimal benefits – or in some cases, nothing at all. When that happens, it’s time to get an experienced Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyer in your corner.

Just because you’re entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, it doesn’t always mean getting them is easy. That’s why you need a workers’ compensation attorney well-versed in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Law who’s focused on what’s best for you.

Once you’ve been hurt at work, you need to act fast to protect your health – and your rights. You should:

  • Seek immediate medical attention and follow all the directions given by your doctor.
  • Report your injury to your supervisor in writing and get a copy of the accident report.
  • Start the process of filing for workers’ compensation – and remember to document everything. One missed detail could affect your right to receive benefits to pay for your medical expenses and lost wages.

Feeling stressed and looking for help? Want to get treated like a real person and not just a name on a piece of paper? Philadelphia workers’ compensation attorney Richard A. Jaffe can meet with you, answer your questions, outline your options, and help you figure out the best course of action to take to maximize the value of your claim. Best of all – you pay no fees at all unless we win. It’s that easy.
