Workers’ Compensation & Personal Injury Lawyer

Injury victims in accidents caused by negligence — and families mourning the wrongful death of a beloved relative — often feel powerless in the face of an insurance company's determination to avoid compensating them for their sacrifice.

If this has happened to you, you don't have to feel powerless anymore. Come to the Law Offices of Joseph DeRita.

Joseph DeRita loves his job. He shows a unique passion for his mission in every personal injury claim and workers' compensation case he handles. He is one of very few lawyers in Pennsylvania who have tried cases to a million-dollar verdict in workers' compensation and a million-dollar jury verdict (as opposed to a settlement) — a very rare accomplishment.

Settlements & Verdicts

• $1.2 million dollar jury verdict to seriously injured steel worker.

• $990K workers compensation award to Lancaster County crane operator.

• $1.8 million dollar settlement for a Lehigh County concrete worker injured by fallen ladder on construction site.
