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

Elbows are prone to a finite list of types of work injuries, including bruises, dislocations, fractures, ligament injuries, tendon injuries and even nerve injuries.  Some are minor, many are very serious, yet all tend to be dismissed as mere "elbow strain" or "elbow contusion" injuries by company doctors.

The elbow is a complex joint, and use of the hands and arms is generally not avoidable, no matter what type of you do and no matter what type of "light duty" work your employer may have in mind for you when they try to force you back to work too soon with an injury to your elbow.

Whether your injury is "simple" tennis elbow -- known medically as lateral epicondylitis, a painful condition caused by overuse or repetitive strain,  often work-related -- or ulnar nerve impaction, or recurrent olecrenon bursitis, or any one of many work-related conditions affecting the elbow, we typically see such injuries dismissed, degraded or downplayed by employer-referred "occupational health" doctors and by insurance carriers who try to artificially refer to all such injuries as a mere "elbow contusion" or "elbow strain".

But for many workers, an elbow strain or contusion can mean living with an elbow that does not function properly, or one that is prone to constant or increasing pain with work activity.  In an environment where employers work to downplay such work injuries while seeking out ways to end the employment relationship, even while a worker has difficulty making use of their arm, such injuries are a huge threat to that workers' long-term security and to the needs of his or her family.  Epicondylitis, for example, can be a chronic problem for workers in many fields.  In some cases it may warrant surgery.  In some cases it may trigger other problems with the hand, arm and shoulder based on changed body mechanics. 

If you have such a diagnosis, do not allow the insurer and employer to sweep it under the rug with a claim of mere "elbow contusion."  Your rights will be trampled, your elbow and arm will suffer, and your employer will prevail at your expense.

Contact The Law Offices of Timothy Kennedy, PC.  Ask us how we can help you enforce your rights under the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act if you have suffered a work-related injury to your elbow or arm.  We can explain your rights, and we can give you options and guidance on how to enforce those rights -- to get the treatment you need from appropriate medical providers, to get the respect you deserve from your employer free from threats of losing your job, to get the benefits you are entitled to under the Act for your loss of wages and to get the lump sum settlement your injury warrants when your injury negatively affects your long-term earning capacity.

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.
