I graduated from Temple University School of Law in 1992. Since that time, I have practiced solely in the areas of workers' compensation, social security disability, and related state and federal disability law. This was further limited to just Pennsylvania workers’ compensation matters over the last several years. In addition to Pennsylvania licensure, I am also licensed to practice in the state courts of New Jersey, and am admitted to practice in Federal District Courts in both states. On various occasions, I have been a speaker at public information seminars, as well as seminars sponsored by The Bucks County Bar Association and National Business Institute, on workers' compensation topics. I have also participated in The People's Law School curriculum, teaching a class on workers' compensation. Most recently, I was invited to join the faculty of LawLine.com, a prestigious legal education provider. I am an active member of the Bucks County, Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Bar Associations. Away from the office, I serve as President of the homeowners’ association of a 400-residence development.

- Q. I have 2 work comp claims. One from 2012, and one from 2015. They were always treated as 2 separate claims..
- A: The short answer is that an insurance carrier does not have the ability to decide whether a subsequent injury is a "new injury" or a "recurrence" of a previous injury. The insurance carrier can certainly issue papers, trying to shape the case one way or the other, but, ultimately, that would be an issue for a workers' compensation judge to decide. There may be a reason why your case would be better served one way or the other, so it is critical that you consult with an attorney who is certified as a specialist in PA workers' compensation law, so you can get legal advice based on the specific facts of your case. Good luck!
- Q. permanet partial disability required to work and get comp that offsets previous income. my wife owns rentals and wants
- A: Workers' compensation systems vary widely from State to State. If you are receiving NY workers' comp, an attorney familiar with only PA workers' comp (as you are likely to find on this board) will be unable to help you. I would suggest you actually have a consultation with a NY workers' compensation attorney, as you actually need legal advice specific to the facts of your case (not just general legal information one would find on a message board). Good luck!
- Q. Is a pinky finger fusion dip joint and pip joint considered a specific loss in Workmans comp Pennsylvania
- A: A specific loss occurs when there is a loss of use of a body part "for all practical intents and purposes." This can be by literal amputation or just a sufficient loss of use. Fingers can be "lost" in whole or in half. You should meet with a PA workers' compensation attorney to see the options you may have.
- Q. My father died, who was a tunnel worker, from Black Lung Disease, can I file a lawsuit and if so against whom?
- A: As Mr. Munsing indicated, we really cannot answer this question without more information. You really need to contact an attorney who is certified in workers' compensation law, whether my firm or another on this board. An attorney would have to know more about your father's work history, like what he was exposed to, when, for how long, etc.
- Q. Can I sue my ex employer, they fired me days after my accident but call me back next day.
- A: I agree with my colleagues. You may have workers' compensation, unemployment compensation and/or civil actions available to you. But, we do not have enough detail to determine whether you actually have any viable actions. As they suggested, you should consult with an attorney immediately to discuss your options.
- Q. My doctor put me on permanent restrictions . Job is working me out of those restrictions what can I do.
- A: You are asking for legal advice. This is a board where we answer general legal questions. You need to contact an attorney who is certified as a specialist in workers' compensation law, whether my firm or another of the fine attorneys on this board. You are at a critical juncture of your case and you need actual legal advice, which is far beyond the scope of this message board.
- Q. Do workers comp payments come monthly or in a bigger amount all at once?
- A: Workers' compensation payments in PA are supposed to be paid in the same fashion as the injured worker was paid while working (so, if an injured employee was paid every other week, that is how the workers' comp checks should be paid). A lump sum payment is usually seen only if there is a retroactive payment due or if there has been a settlement.
- Q. Can I relocate to another state if I am still receiving payments and medical benefits from an injury dated 10/12/1998?
- A: I agree with Mr. Jaffe. Every State has a different set of workers' compensation laws. How relocating under NY workers' compensation law would impact you would depend on that law. An attorney familiar only with PA workers' compensation law could not answer this question. I also agree with Mr. Jaffe, that (under PA workers' compensation law) many of my clients have relocated out of PA and had no difficulty (aside from, as he notes, some challenges with medical treatment).
- Q. on workers comp in pa . i want to jobs .what do i need to know
- A: I agree with Mr. Jaffe. Prior to making a decision on returning to the labor market, it would be wise for an injured worker to consult with both their medical and legal professionals, to make sure the best decision is made. If an injured worker does not have an attorney, then this would be an excellent time to get one!
