INJURED UBER DRIVER? YOU NEED A WORKERS' COMPENSATION ATTORNEY NOW!

VJQ Uber Blog.jpgIn Pittsburgh, hailing a cab was tantamount to putting in a bid to host the Olympics. It seemed like you had to wait years for one to show up! So, I was an early cheerleader for the new mousetrap for hailing a cab - Uber. So easy! So prompt! So intriguing - peering at that car icon on my phone, starting up in Oakland weaving its way down Fifth Ave. across Grant St., turning on 7th St., eventually picking me up at QuatriniRafferty's downtown Pittsburgh office, at 941 Penn Ave., to take me to the airport.

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 INTERSECTION OF PERSONAL INJURY AND WORKERS' COMPENSATION

If you were ever hurt or injured, your natural response may be to seek out help from an attorney. You might consider the circumstances related to the injury when deciding who to contact. For example, if you were in a car accident, you would seek out the help of a Personal Injury attorney. If you were injured at work, you would contact a Worker's Compensation attorney. What you might not realize is that the circumstances surrounding your injuries might require the work of multiple attorneys from several different practice areas. These attorneys should work together to fully compensate you for your injuries.
