Workers’ Compensation applications can be a straightforward process. However, if your work injury was at all unusual or complicated, if your claim was denied, if your employer wants you to return to work before you are medically ready or if you are an attorney with questions about third-party claims or subrogation, consult an experienced work injury attorney of Gross & Kenny, LLP, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

We encourage you to contact our offices for a free and confidential consultation if any of the following occurs and your Workers’ Compensation benefits are threatened:
What if a third party, unrelated to your place of work, was fully or partially responsible for your workplace injury? You may still file a Workers’ Compensation claim to get compensation from your employer for the injury. Nothing in the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act stops an employee from also filing a lawsuit against the third party for careless or reckless conduct that contributed to the accident. If you decide to make a claim against the party responsible for your accident, or you decide to sue that third party, your employer has the right to get money back for what it paid on your behalf. This complicated process is called subrogation. Jeffrey S. Gross and Patrick W. Kenny, along with their associates handle subrogation claims routinely and are experienced in mastering this complex area where personal injury law and Workers’ Compensation law intersect. Many times a different attorney represents a claimant in the handling of the third party claim, and we are available as co-counsel in these personal injury cases to provide both short- and long-term technical assistance.
