Chester County has the distinction of being Pennsylvania's most affluent county, and for good reason: It's full of hardworking people. Many Chester County residents commute to jobs in Philadelphia or elsewhere, while others work in technology, education, healthcare and for the government within the county's borders. With hundreds of thousands going to work every day, it's inevitable that some will be involved in accidents.
You go to work to earn a living, but an accident suffered in the workplace can take that living away in moments. Even a minor injury such as a sprain or strain could leave you unable to work for an extended period of time. Accidents involving heavy equipment, hazardous chemicals or work vehicles could leave you severely injured or even permanently disabled. Between medical bills, lost wages and other expenses, the cost of a single accident can run high.
If you suffered your accident while on the job, Pennsylvania provides for you to be compensated via workers' compensation. However, actually filing a workers' compensation claim can be a challenging process, and it's easy to miss a deadline or misfile some paperwork. During your recovery, it shouldn't be your job to try to navigate this process and stand up to your employer's insurance alone. That's where we come in.
At the Law Offices of Richard A. Jaffe, we've been helping injured workers in Chester County and throughout southeastern Pennsylvania for many years. Our legal team has handled well over a thousand cases, and that experience matters. We're familiar with all the intricacies of the workers' compensation system here in Pennsylvania, and we know how to counter the arguments made by insurance companies and get you the compensation you need to move forward.

With an experienced and principled attorney advocating for you, you can rest assured that you'll get what you need to pay for your recovery - and while we're handling your case, you can concentrate on getting better.
