At Michael J. O’Connor & Associates, we pride ourselves on our strong record of success in helping hard working people get the results they need. We’re a firm of working class people fighting for working class people. Since 1989, our Pennsylvania workers compensation attorneys have been representing our clients with integrity, reliability and trustworthiness all over the state. This combination has earned our lawyers a reputation for success in the resolution of serious legal problems including workers’ compensation, personal injury, auto accidents, nursing home abuse cases and social security disability.
The workers at our firm come from local and humble backgrounds, which gives us the ability to connect with and relate to our clients on very personal levels. We understand the hardships that come with a workplace injury. Growing up as the son and grandson of anthracite coal miners, Michael J. O’Connor was often a first-hand witness to the injustices that hard-working families dealt with in order to support their families.
While labor unions and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have taken major strides in improving working conditions and benefits for workers in every profession over the last few decades, unsafe working conditions and workplace injuries are still present in factories, office and job sites all across the United States and in our home state of Pennsylvania. Michael J. O’Connor built his firm with the goal of helping injured workers through every stage of litigation, and beyond.
With 15 offices throughout Pennsylvania, we're able to represent clients from anywhere in the state. Whether you’re an injured worker seeking workers’ compensation benefits in the Lehigh Valley, a tractor trailer accident victim in Pittsburgh or are seeking Social Security benefits in Schuylkill County, we have the team and tools to take on your case.
Our team includes two attorneys who have earned specialty certifications in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation law through the Pennsylvania Bar Association. Our firm has received awards and certificates from Martindale-Hubbell AV Ratings, Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Super Lawyers, US News Best Lawyers, MVTLA, AVVO and more.In addition, we have a team of Pennsylvania workers compensation lawyers, paralegals and supporting staff that are committed to your case and providing you with the knowledge and resources you need while guiding you through the legal system.
It is never recommended that anyone tries to tackle a legal problem alone. Without legal representation, victims of workers’ compensation claims often end up settling for less, get stuck with outstanding medical bills, end up having to go back to work with an injury or overlook potential third-party claims. In motor vehicle accidents, insurance companies pay out much more when you have legal representation. Our law firm guarantees that we will do everything in our power to fight for the compensation you deserve. And for most of our services, we work on a contingency basis which means you won’t owe us anything until we are able to earn money for you. That, in addition to our free consultation, means that you have nothing to lose by having us handle your case.
In addition to workers’ compensation, personal injury, auto accidents, nursing home abuse cases and social security disability, some of the other types of cases we handle include wills and estates, elder law, premises liability, slip and fall, medical malpractice, dangerous drugs and product recalls, motorcycle accidents, tractor trailer accidents, mesothelioma cases, driving under the influence charges (DUI), traffic violations and more. If your case doesn’t fall under one of the types of cases we handle, we’ll be able to point you in the direction of an experienced law firm that does.
