Our Practice Areas

Pennsylvania workers' compensation benefits

When you are hurt at work and file a workers' compensation claim, you are likely to be frustrated by delays and denials. Our attorneys help you succeed with the following types of situations:

Claim denial

Many workers' compensation claims are rejected outright. We know how to litigate your claim and expedite it through the court system to get you full medical and wage loss benefits.

Termination of benefits

Your claim may be approved initially, but eventually, your employer is likely to attempt to cut off your medical treatment, wage loss benefits or both. We dedicate a 100% of our resources to make sure your benefits don't stop.

Rejection of medical treatment

Often, the specific recommendations and treatments by your physician will be challenged as unnecessary or too expensive. We do everything we can to prove that your treatments are reasonable and necessary and make the insurance company pay for the required treatments your doctor has prescribed.

Longshore and harbor workers’ compensation claims

If you are an injured dockworker or hurt on the waterfront you have the special protection of the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). This law provides work injury benefits for:

Longshoremen

  • Fork lift operators
  • Crane operators
  • Mechanics

Harbor workers

  • Ship repairers
  • Shipbuilders
  • Shipbreakers

Disability claims under this act are complex and usually require the assistance of a skilled and experienced lawyer. We have extensive experience with longshore injury cases and can help you get the appropriate disability award.

Defense Base Act

The Defense Base Act is an extension of the LHWCA and covers civilian employees of U.S. contractors working outside the United States on national defense or public works projects. If you are injured while working overseas under government contract, our attorneys steer you through the bureaucracy and help ensure that you receive full disability benefits.

Social Security Disability Claims

If your injury and disability meet the Social Security’s requirements, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. More than half of initial claims for SSD are denied, but you are entitled to a hearing. Our attorneys represent you in the hearing and make your case before the judge. Our experience with disability claims gives us the ability to make your best case before the administrative law judges.
