        Pennsylvania Workers Compensation claims do not permit awards for pain and suffering.  However, lump sum settlements are common in Pennsylvania workers compensation claims, and in many cases work injury claimants collect more than other personal injury victims for similar injuries.  While no part of any Pennsylvania workmans compensation settlement is for pain and suffering, wage loss and medical expense benefits are compensable and may have very substantial value, allowing the injured worker to make a large lump sum recovery without the insurance limitations common in other kinds of claims which do allow for pain and suffering awards.

        In addition, your rights as an injured worker often overlap with other rights available for civil claims.  Just because the workers' compensation claim itself -- against your employer and its workers' compensation insurance carrier -- will not pay pain and suffering, there may be overlapping claims arising from the same injury.  Premises liability claims (for defective or dangerous conditions on property causing injury), defective products claims (for items, materials or tools creating dangers and hazards leading to injury), or other negligence claims (including but not limited to work-related motor vehicle accident claims or even medical malpractice claims) may be at issue in connection with the same accident for which you have workers' compensation rights.

        Call the Law Offices of Timothy Kennedy.  Let Mr. Kennedy explain for you how he can turn his more than twenty years of success representing injured workers in Pennsylvania -- in both the workers' compensation courts and in civil litigation -- into a lump sum cash recovery that vompensates you for the full extent of the injury you have suffered and to the fullest extent of the law.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS:

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.

"Attorney: Timothy James Kennedy" is (not, only) a, true professional -He is a, loving / caring / sharing human being who (not, only) cares about his, cases and reputation; but, cares (also) for the lives and the families of those he so-caringly and so-humbly, represents!!!
He will (always) be appreciated and will never - ever - be, forgotten. "I" (on, behalf of myself and my, family) appreciates the fact that, He was willing to stop-by and become, "The Good Samaritan" in our, lives!!!

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.
