If your employer is telling you that your only option is to treat with an unsympathetic or even incompetent company doctor, your injury could be made worse while at the same time your rights under the Act are being prejudiced. The same is true where your employer’s unfairly limited description of injury keeps you from getting care you truly need.  You might also be denied treatment or prescription medications due to an insurance adjuster's refusal to "pre-authorize payment" – sometimes even outright lying to pharmacists or physicians to avoid approving an expense.

At other times, your access to treatment or medications may be cut off or limited for no reason whatsoever, often in complete violation of the Workers’ Compensation Act.

These tactics can hurt not only your right to medical benefits, but also your right to wage-replacement benefits. This is because in workers' compensation, your entitlement to wage loss benefits almost always depends upon your disability status (except for cases of "specific loss", for example, loss of a limb or digit) and your disability status is defined by the doctors who treat or examine you. If your access to treatment is cut-off, your right to wage loss benefits may soon follow.

An injured worker must find his way around these obstacles when seeking a physician, or his rights will be lost. The sooner you call me, the sooner I can help you explore your rights regarding medical treatment.  You ALWAYS have options, even during the first ninety days of treatment, and even if your employer has not fully complied with the Act.  

In workers' compensation matters, it is important to find medical experts who will not only provide you with competent and sympathetic treatment, but who may also be relied upon to document your claim in accordance with the standards of the Act and with the understanding that workers' compensation claims often give rise to litigation. In fact, even where the employer and insurer have acknowledged your claim and are paying benefits, they may elect to pursue litigation at virtually any time, beginning with a request to a Judge to stop or reduce your benefits.

When you call me, I can help you to identify medical providers responsive to your needs and the needs of the Act, and competent to treat you with compassion, dignity and respect.

I have sixteen years of experience dealing with physicians and specialists in virtually all medical fields and convenient to your locality. I will help you in your search for a competent medical advocate, should you need it. I can also assure you that I will work with any physician, anywhere, who you feel provides reasonable and necessary care for your work injuries. I will confer with your medical expert to any extent needed to help him or her be a strong advocate for your claim. Whoever you choose to treat with, I will coordinate with your physicians to maximize your access to necessary care and to establish and protect your full rights.  Talk to me first, so that you will not be unecessarily forced to treat with the employer's doctors.  Call  610 924 5667 or 215 559 5003.

We Make It Convenient for You:

Unlike some lawyers you may have talked to or dealt with in the past, we never forget that we work for you, not the other way around. We make it easy for you.  We keep you advised of what is going on in your case, by sending you copies of every letter we send out, by calling you with updates periodically, and by promptly responding to every telephone call and e-mail we receive.  We also make it easy for you with three convenient locations to meet with you: Mr. Kennedy's primary offices in Havertown, Delaware County, just off the Blue Route and in Northeast Philadelphia/Trevose at the Neshaminy Interplex.

But we know that when you are hurting, particularly in the early days, weeks or months after a serious injury, even commuting to one of our three convenient locations may be difficult for you.  If your injuries have forced you from the workplace or limited your earning capacity, you may also have difficulty with the expense of commuting to one of our locations. For these reasons, we are generally available to come to you, to meet in your home or another suitable location convenient to you, by appointment.  Whether you live in Norristown, West Chester, Bucks County, or even in Allentown, Quakertown or Reading, the broad scope of our personal injury and workers' compensation practice frequently takes us into your area.  This makes it convenient for us to agree to meet with you at a time and place of your choosing, when you decide to make us your law firm of choice.

These are just some of the many ways we demonstrate to our clients, every day, our commitment to serving your needs, at the same time we are aggressively representing your rights and advancing your claims.

Please call us today: 610 924 5667 or 215 559 5003.
