UNIQUELY SKILLED PA WORKERS' COMPENSATION ATTORNEY

Timothy Kennedy has been 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.

 

Mr. Kennedy obtained his law degree (Juris Doctor) in 1992 from Rutgers Law School in Camden, New Jersey, a highly competitive law school rated as one of the best in the country.  Mr. Kennedy  there had the very great honor of becoming a Law Review Editor, a distinction recognized by other lawyers as the mark of a truly ambitious and hard-working attorney.  Tim was also a dean's list scholar and worked in the coveted position of research and writing assistant for the internationally known constitutional law expert who drafted the constitution of the Russian Republic in 1991 and forty other national constitutions world-wide. Tim also obtained perhaps the most impressive and immediate success of anyone in his law school class, securing a summer associate position with a large and prestigious Philadelphia firm after just his first year of legal study. 


Graduating in 1992, Tim immediately took and passed the Pennsylvania Bar examination and was admitted to practice that same year.  By that time, he was no longer interested in leading or even joining the herd pursuing large firm practice.  Instead, Tim was committed to representing injured individuals and setting the record straight in an environment where insurance companies manipulate and mistreat honest victims of serious injuries, literally adding insult to injury. Tim set out to take on the insurance companies, as a litigator fighting for individuals.

For the past twenty-plus years, Tim has concentrated his practice on representing injured workers, persons who have suffered serious personal injuries, the families of those who have been killed under wrongful death circumstances and the survivors of persons who have died due to the effects of work-related injuries or illnesses. He knows the law and he knows the practice, and he has what can only be called an astonishingly high success rate in getting the best possible results for his clients. 

Mr. Kennedy has established himself as a uniquely skilled and accomplished Philadelphia area workers compensation and personal injury attorney, appreciated by his clients, respected by his colleagues and feared by his adversaries.

Mr. Kennedy is a frequent speaker at legal seminars and before public and private groups, educating other lawyers and the public on issues relating to workers' compensation and personal injury law.

 

The Law Offices of Timothy Kennedy maintains a primary office on South Newtown Street Road (PA Route 252), in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, convenient to the Blue Route and at the very center of the five county Philadelphia region.  Mr. Kennedy also maintains regional satellite offices and meeting sites at business centers accessible to all of eastern Pennsylvania, for the convenience of the firm's many clients from nearby Philadelphia, from such far afield locales as Scranton, and everywhere in between.   


Tim resides in Delaware County with his wife of twenty-two plus years and their two sons.

I called Tim, and that was the best thing I could have done.
I took a fall backwards at my job onto a concrete floor and injured my back and neck. I went through the prescribed routine with the company Dr's, but they were determined to only prescribe extensive physical rehab that was making my condition much worse. When I couldn't get the company Dr's to take my condition seriously I went to see a lawyer in Scranton, PA. I explained my situation and I was very surprised that he seemed unconcerned that I couldn't get any real treatment for my injuries. The lawyer asked who the Dr's was, and I told him his name. The lawyer said to me "Oh! he's a great doctor". I knew I was now in trouble trying to find a lawyer in NE PA. A friend suggested I find an attorney outside the Scranton (click) area to get some real help. I found Tim Kennedy's web site and was impressed with what he stated about the worker's compensation system and the company Dr's. I called Tim and that was the best thing I could have done. Quickly, Tim found me a very well known spine specialist that has made all the difference in my medical treatment. Within 30 days I started to get the pain in my back under control, and get my life back. Even with the great medical treatment I was not been able to return to work so Tim went to work and was able to get the Workers Compensation insurance company to settle my case with a Compromise and Release, and Medicare Set Aside settlement, that was more then I could have dreamed of after all the pain and not being able to work. For the year and a half that it took for Tim to settle my case, Tim never (not once) neglected to return my phone calls or emails. Before any hearing, Tim briefed me in great detail as to why I was attending, and what to expect in the hearing. Tim's legal staff was always available for little questions and was really very supportive of me through out this whole process. "I know" Tim really means what he says on his web site about him knowing the system and getting his clients the medical help and the best possible settlements. I was there!

Tim Kennedy is the Best Lawyer hands down.
I injured my back working at FedEx. I went the route of going through their doctors and did 2 rounds or physical therapy. Nothing was helping my back injury. I contacted Timothy Kennedy and it was the best thing I could have done. Mr. Kennedy and his staff were always knowledgeable, professional, informative every step of the way when took my case against FedEx to them. It was a long process but with the support from Timothy Kennedy and his paralegal I was always in good hands. He and his staff were instrumental in my case and helped me get the settlement I deserved.

I hope I never have to hire an attorney again, but if I did, I would completely trust Tim Kennedy
Timothy Kennedy is an excellent lawyer and showed himself to have extensive knowledge in his field. My case became complicated, and he always had confidence in his strategy. Tim took the time to listen to my questions and explain everything to me. The outcome of my case was successful, and I would completely trust Mr. Kennedy to represent me again if I should ever feel the need.

Corporate greed
Mr. Kennedy is and excellent lawyer that took my case despite some difficulties, I was against this large corporation that did all they could to get me fired not to mention they send surveillance to stalk me at home and still managed to win, Mr. Kennedy made the process easy and comfortable for me,thanks to him I won a lump sum that gave me the opportunity to search for something better without worrying about money.

Workers Compensation
I hired Tim Kennedy a couple years after sustaining a serious shoulder injury at work, which had already required 2 surgeries. Until that time I was dealing with the insurance carrier myself and was very straightforward with them. At some point in time the carrier seemed to be less than cooperative and I felt like I needed representation. My business at the time was providing legal support services to attorneys in Philadelphia and I was familiar with the local fraternity. I looked outside of the city for a reputable firm to avoid being chewed up by the system. After some research online, I called Mr. Kennedys office. The following is an email I sent him at the conclusion of my case.. I can't describe my experience any better than this.. "Hey Tim, I received both the lump sum and the final weekly check via direct deposit. I don't think it could have worked out any better than it did.. not that it's life changing money, but it's certainly enough to start my own firm which has always been in the back of my mind. I thank you greatly for the personal attention you afforded me, which is not my experience with most attorneys. This is how I treat my clients. I appreciated your directness with the insurance company, and unwillingness to compromise on their obligations. This, again, is not my experience with most attorneys.. everything is usually a negotiation. I will have no problem referring clients to you who are in need of any type of representation, personal injury or otherwise, which in my line of work is usually a fair amount of people. I will consider you my personal attorney, going forward I am sure I will need one. Thank you again"

Definitely someone I would use again....not that I would want to have another need for Timothy Kennedy's services!
Mr. Kennedy was a Godsend. He helped me to get the correct wages I was to receive while on Workmen's Comp when it was apparent I was not being paid accordingly. He helped me settle my case for an amount that was fair due to the circumstances of my case. I highly recommend him and his law firm to anyone who has any type of fall/accident/injury he will be by your side from the beginning to the end. He isn't pushy, he will explain ALL the possibilities to you but ultimately the choice is left to you on how you want to proceed. He returns calls and emails in a timely matter, he called me on a few occasions just to touch base and see how I was doing after a few surgeries. I received copies of any paperwork that was pertinent to my case from all parties involved. I was in very good hands. If I would ever need his type of service again I won't hesitate to call his office first. (keeping fingers crossed I won't need them ever again though!!)

Best advocate to have on you side
My case is still in progress. My case has been complicated and the opposing team isn't playing fair. Tim has been on top of his game since day one, and has always been honest. I don't know what the outcome of my case will be... but I know he has given them one heck of a fight! His staff is also nothing short of amazing.

Great Personal Injury Lawyer!!!!
Tim handled everything from the day of my pedestrian accident until the day we settled. He would call me with updates and all my emails and phone calls were responded to promptly. He did great with the demand and got me a reasonable settlement. I would definitely use him again and have already recommended him to a few people in need. Overall great lawyer!
