Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Fighting for Injured Workers Since 1945

Attorney Cathy Surbeck discusses subrogation and liens on third party settlements.

The Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation lawyers at Freedman & Lorry, P.C. take pride in our dedication to workers who have been hurt on the job. We serve clients in a wide range of occupations including longshoremen, merchant seamen, health care workers, construction workers, public employees, and other professionals in various industries.

An Accident Can Happen Anywhere

Work accidents and work injuries commonly occur across all industries, and expenses may amass for the injured worker while he or she recovers. Illnesses and temporary or permanent disabilities may prevent the worker from earning an income. Workers’ Compensation benefits protect workers by offering a portion of lost wages, medical treatment, and, in cases of fatal injuries, death benefits and burial expenses to assist the family of the deceased loved one.

We Fight For Your Right to Benefits

Employers and their insurance companies may try to deny your claim for benefits or offer a reduced amount of coverage to you after your work accident. Our law firm will protect your rights and will not rest until you receive the Workers’ Compensation benefits you deserve. We understand how challenging facing a workplace accident may be and will support your case with the quality legal representation that precedes our reputation.
