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.

"LET ME COUNT THE WAYS THAT THE ATTORNEYS OF QR HELP OUR INJURED AND DISABLED CLIENTS!"

MY NEIGHBOR GETS DISABILITY - WHY CAN'T I?

We are often asked to explain to clients why they don't financially qualify for disability benefits, even though they worked most of their lives. A client might see a neighbor receiving disability from the Social Security Administration, and that neighbor never worked. What the client might not realize is that the Social Security Administration (SSA) provides disability benefits to qualified individuals both with and without a work history.

Adding Compassion To the Social Security Process

At Quatrinini Rafferty, compassion and respect define our approach to the practice of law. We understand that applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a difficult and intimidating experience. The Social Security Disability lawyers at Quatrinini Rafferty - Tereasa Rerko, Brian Bronson, Michael Quatrini, and Adam Quatrini - are approachable, sympathetic, and knowledgeable.
