Tim Kennedy is certified as a specialist in the practice of Workers' Compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association's Section on Workers' Compensation Law as authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court

      The fee we earn in workers' compensation cases is a "contingent fee."  That is, our fee is contingent on our first securing your rights.  If you don't get paid, we don't get paid.  Fees apply ONLY when when we win in court or obtain a lump sum settlement on your behalf.   The fee is equal to twenty percent (20%) of the benefits we secure for you by litigation in court or via a lump sum settlement in your favor.  This is the going rate for a Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Attorney. 

      While it is always going to hugely help your claim to act as early as possible to get a competent, conscientious and tough attorney on your side, giving you good advice, please know that in many situations, you won't have to pay anything for that advice and guidance for many months from the time you first hire us, and then only if we first secure for you a right to continuing benefits or a lump sum settlement that meet your needs.

The Tim Kennedy Promise: I offer legal advice and guidance to you to make your Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation claim as strong as it can be. If you have been hurt at work, I am available to you for legal advice concerning your claim.  I will get involved in your case early, and guide you every step of the way with solid legal advice.  If you wish, I will help you find doctors who are sympathetic and competent as well as able to document your claim and stand up for you if necessary in future litigation. You will have the benefit of my twenty-plus years of experience representing injured workers.  I offer immediate advice and aggressive representation, so that you know your rights will be protected, preserved and advanced, to the fullest extent of the law.

During all of this, I will not collect a single dime, unless and until I secure benefits for you in active litigation, or until you approve a lump sum settlement I negotiate for you.

These are not empty words.  This is the promise that I live by and the promise that I practice law by.  This promise will be confirmed for you in writing from the moment I become your attorney, so that you can count on it, too.

                                            -Tim Kennedy

      Unlike many other firms, The Law Offices of Timothy Kennedy will advance all costs of litigation.  These costs typically run to several thousand dollars in a given round of litigation in the workers' compensation courts.  Costs cover such things as expert witness deposition fees, court reporter fees and records service fees.

      Most importantly, we have made our reputation by always being very careful to act strictly in the best interests of our clients.  Many clients come to us while already receiving benefits.  Even when there may be legal issues that would justify litigation, that may not be in our client's immediate best interest.  In many cases, watching, waiting and building and strengthening the client's claim is the best overall course. 

     Because our philosophy always puts the client first, we sometimes spend months or even years monitoring and strengthening an open claim, with our client's benefit checks coming uninterupted, without triggering a fee interest for our firm.  This ultimately pays, since when the time does come and the insurer attempts to stop benefits, the claim is strong enough to ensure a win for our client, or better still a lump sum settlement for the fullest possible value and on terms most favorable to the client.  This is what then triggers our fee interest, but in a case now made strong and on a timetable we have influenced to our client's advantage.

      In other cases, a new client may come to us very anxious to move his claim toward a large lump sum workers compensation settlement.  We have mechanisms to do just that.   Where it is in the client's best interest, we can and will move quickly to position the claim for maximum impact and the best possible lump sum settlement.

      Bottom line: all workers' compensation attorneys charge the same twenty percent contingent fee amount, but some have strings attached, and some cannot be fully relied upon to pursue the claim professionally and with your interests foremost in mind.  At The Law Offices of Timothy Kennedy, we talk to our clients.  We educate them about their rights and their options before we take action, and we carefully consider the timing of every move we make, working hard to ensure that we never fall out of step with the best interests of the particular client in the particular case, rather than trying to make each claim fit a pattern or formula.

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.
