LIFETIME LEGAL CARE®: A Way of Life at QuatriniRafferty

SKY_1153-EditRES.jpgRepresenting injured workers has been a way of life for me for 44 years. I started to practice law in 1974. I had no idea what kind of cases I would handle - they don't teach you that in law school!Frank Pawlosky showed up one day. He worked for Rolling Rock cleaning the beer vats. The chemicals made his asthma get so bad that he had to stop working. I filed a claim for him. The Judge found that he was not entitled to Workers' Compensation since the chemicals did not cause his asthma, only aggravated it. I appealed. I lost. I appealed again. I lost. Ten years and three appeals later, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania agreed that Frank Pawlosky was injured at work and they awarded him disability benefits. Needless to say, I found my niche in the law.Today, the climate for injured workers is not as favorable as it was in 1984. Harrisburg has taken away important rights. Our appellate courts are filled with judges who are not very sympathetic to the plight of the injured worker. Attorneys who advertise on TV give injured workers and the whole system a bad image.

The 2018 Boston Marathon Through the Eyes (& Feet!) of Attorney Jessica Rafferty

Jess@BostonMarathon.jpgAs some of you may already know, I love to run. I have always loved it even though I didn't run in high school or college (I played tennis). In 2001 spent my fall semester in Washington, D.C. during my time in college and all of the runners around there were gearing up for the Marine Corps Marathon. I never really gave running a marathon any thought, but this sparked my interest. I signed up for the Marine Corps Marathon and I ran my first marathon in 2002.

"DO I HAVE SHORT/LONG-TERM DISABILITY COVERAGE?

Thumbnail image for Brian Patrick Bronson.jpg"In the state of Pennsylvania, Short-Term and Long-Term Disability insurance coverage are not mandatory insurance coverages, such as Workers' Compensation. Therefore, it is dependent on your employer to carry such coverage, or for you to purchase an individual policy on your own from an insurance carrier. Usually, you can find out whether your employer offers Short-Term or Long-Term Disability coverage by contacting your Human Resources Department and/or reviewing your employee manual.
