Logging is an inherently dangerous profession, and not for the faint of heart. Injuries in the logging industry tend to be serious, long-term or even fatal. Loggers are tough people, and not quick to miss a minute of work for anything other than the kind of serious injury that makes them a danger to themself and to their crew.
The laws of Pennsylvania make it fully clear that the risks to workers inherent in logging work are supposed to fall to EMPLOYERS, not to the individual workers who suffer work injuries. We find that employers in the logging industry, however, tend to be quick to forget that, and may try to avoid their obligations for a work injury or, even more commonly, understate the description of a workers' injury in a way that compromises the workers' rights and often leaves the injured worker in a very bad way.
That's where we come in. Any injury you may suffer in the course of your employment on site in PA, or in any job where your work is based out of PA (even if the injury happens while working in another state), creates very valuable rights under the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act. We work to advance and enforce those rights, so that you can get the treatment you need, the wage loss benefits and medical expense benefits you deserve, and the lump sum recovery appropriate to compensate you for any long-term effects from your logging industry work injury.
In the case of a "specific loss" -- such as the loss of a finger, or part of a finger, or any other amputation or partial amputation injury (or, for that matter, an injury that results in a practical loss of use of a digit or apendage) -- we can even get very substantial compensation benefits while you continue to work.

I had a serious work related injury. I hired Tim after speaking with him and feeling completely at ease with his professionalism and demeanor. My case became complicated over time. Throughout the process I always felt that Tim had my best interest in mind. With every phone call or email, Tim was very informative and proactive, always explaining things in a way I could understand. He worked hard for me in his dealings with my employers insurance company. He did this so much so, the insurance company actually fired their own attorneys in the middle of litigation. In the end, Tim was able to negotiate a substantial settlement, including taking the burden off of me of an excessive amount of unpaid medical bills. I would highly recommend Tim.

Timothy is a really great lawyer. He knows what to do, and how to handle really sticky situations. When I first came to him, I had very little to back me up, but we mainly him lol pulled through and got the job done with GREAT results. If I could back in time I would still pick him as a lawyer 1000 times more. He took his time, talk to me like I was a person and not a dollor sign, and made lawyer jargon understandable english for me. I truely felt comfortable with him handling my case, and I never doubted him since the very first meeting. I also like that he gives his personal direct number to get in contact with him whenever you may need him, and he always responds if not that same day, the very next. The only bad thing I would have to say is its a shame I would have legal trouble to work with him again lol.

When hiring a lawyer you need to be sure that they are knowledgeable,trustworthy,responsive and most of all have very strong confidence in their abilities to fight for your rights. Mr. Kennedy is one of the most confident people i know. He is determined and aggressive. I guess i can also say he is feared by others. Mr. Kennedy made me feel as we were friends by always keeping me informed and also asking me for my input as well as cared for my opinion. He told me that he would have no problem getting me the amount that i felt i deserved. He then said i will do better than that were gonna go high and mabey hit a homerun. When he called me with news of the final judgement i was shocked he said i not only hit a homerun for you, it was a grandslam. His work is so impressive he can be considered to be the best in PA.
