Susan Herczeg joined the team at Badey, Sloan and DiGenova in 2012, and concentrates her practice in workers compensation and personal injury litigation.
I’ve been on both sides of the bargaining table, and I can tell you– it gives my clients a real advantage. I know how the defense thinks – and I know what to anticipate from the insurance companies. And I am absolutely committed to the kind of law we practice in this firm – where we level the playing field.
Ms. Herczeg began her law career as a public defender for Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. She later shifted the focus of her practice to the representation of plaintiffs at a small law firm in the Philadelphia suburbs. In 1987, she joined a leading Philadelphia personal injury law firm, where for 18 years she represented claimants in workers compensation cases and plaintiffs in personal injury lawsuits.
From 2006 to 2012, she worked for a major Philadelphia litigation law firm where she represented employers and insurance companies in Workers’ Compensation matters.
Ms. Herczeg’s experience as a defense attorney working for employers and insurance companies provides her with unique insight into the strategies used by defense attorneys and insurance companies in those cases.
Our clients are hard-working people who when faced with a work injury find it is devastating physically, financially and psychologically not to be able to work. They want to work. They’ve always worked.
Many are people who don’t believe in being sick or taking time off. And in a bad economy, they’re even less inclined to even report an injury – much less take time off to treat it. And even if they do, they’ll often go back to work long before they should; they’re afraid they might lose the job they need so badly. It’s heartbreaking. And scary. But we can help.
