Why choose ross feller casey?

  • More than $2 Billion in Recoveries in Personal Injury Cases
  • No law firm has recovered more on behalf of injured Pennsylvania children over 5 years
  • Team of Leading Doctor-Lawyers on Staff
  • Among the nation’s top plaintiffs firms – The Philadelphia Inquirer
  • More than 75 $10-Million-plus Verdicts & Settlements
  • National Reputation for Record Results
  • “A firm that keeps setting new records” – Harvard Law School

Over the past five years alone, the firm's attorneys have achieved verdicts and settlements exceeding $1 billion for their severely injured clients. This impressive track record encompasses a multitude of multimillion-dollar recoveries in workplace injury lawsuits not only in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania but also extending beyond state borders.

Founding partner Matt Casey recently recovered $19.5 million for a masonry company truck driver who was paralyzed after a faulty crane lifting 3,500 pounds of concrete block split in two, striking him on the head.

Casey, a leading Philadelphia work injury lawyer, also headed the investigation that resulted in a remarkable $36.4 million recovery for the family of a man killed in an oil refinery explosion. Casey’s work revealed that a corroded tank had leaked hydrogen, that this hydrogen was the source of the explosion, and that the refinery had been aware of the inherent danger. It remains among the largest single-victim settlements ever for a wrongful death case in the U.S.

Casey also obtained a $10 million settlement in a workplace injury lawsuit involving a 40-year-old Bucks County, Pennsylvania welder killed when a pressurized tank exploded. It is one of the largest recoveries ever reported for a lawsuit of its kind involving a single death in Pennsylvania.

How Common Are Workplace Injuries?

Each year, nearly 4 million workers are injured on job sites across the U.S., and tragically, about 4,500 die from those workplace injuries, according to government statistics. Employers are responsible for ensuring a safe workplace and that equipment meets government-set safety standards.

Philadelphia Attorney Robert Ross Fights For Injured Workers

Founding partner Robert Ross has successfully litigated a long list of catastrophic workplace injury cases, many involving loss of limbs.

In one such Pennsylvania work injury lawsuit filed in federal court, Ross secured a $4 million recovery on behalf of a machinist who was pulled into a grinding machine at a factory.

Other notable victories by Ross Feller Casey's Philadelphia work injury lawyers include:

  • $8 million recovery for a factory worker injured in a workplace accident
  • $8 million recovery for an ironworker injured on the job site
  • $4.4 million settlement for the family of a steelworker killed when a crane malfunctioned
  • $2 million settlement for a worker who fell off scaffolding at a construction site

While slip and fall accidents are the most common cause of injury in a work setting, other unsafe conditions, including loose or faulty scaffolding or improper operation of cranes, winches, bulldozers, forklifts, and other equipment, can result in severe injuries.

Injured workers across the U.S. are often told that the only compensation they can receive under government rules comes from their employer’s workers' compensation insurance.

In many cases, this is true. But there are often exceptions, and the experienced construction, work injury, and personal injury lawyers at Ross Feller Casey have built an impressive record of success in finding them.

They know workers' compensation law and understand the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act, but they are far more than just Philadelphia work injury attorneys. Our attorneys know when additional claims can be pursued for our clients, and they are knowledgeable about all types of personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases. A workers' comp lawyer may not know all the ins and outs of other kinds of personal injury cases.

When Can A Work Injury Lawsuit Be Filed?

Workplace injury lawsuits in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey may be brought in addition to a workers' compensation claim if:

  • You are injured by a defective machine or product
  • You are injured by chemicals, toxic materials, or substances
  • You are injured by the actions of a third-party
  • You are injured as a result of egregious or intentional conduct on the part of your employer

How To Find A Philadelphia Work Injury Attorney?

Ross Feller Casey’s Philadelphia work injury lawyers handle cases on a contingency basis, so you will not pay anything unless there is a financial recovery in your case. Even if you have a workers' compensation case that covers medical expenses, you may be able to pursue additional personal injury claims.

If you or a loved one has suffered a workplace injury, one of our experienced attorneys can assist you in determining if you also have a personal injury lawsuit. You may be entitled to more than workers' compensation benefits, lost wages, and medical bills. Let us deal with the insurance company and workers' comp, so you don't have to.

Even if the injury occurred some time ago, you might still be able to investigate a potential work injury claim. But your time may be running out.
