Workplace Injury Attorneys
Contrary to popular belief, not all workplace injuries are ones that fall within the purview of the workers' compensation scheme. For instance, one may be in the course and scope of his employment working as a delivery driver and become involved in a vehicular accident wholly the fault of another. While this individual would have a workers' compensation claim, he or she would also have a valid third party claim against the driver of the at-fault vehicle. Other workplace injuries may involve equipment failures where the manufacturer of the equipment bears fault for the claimed incident and resultant injury. At EISENBERG LAW FIRM, we specialize in the handling of such claims working closing with our client's workers' compensation attorney to maximize his/her recovery.
Injuries on the job can be substantial, permanent and catastrophic. State workmen compensation laws limit recovery for an injured employee's claim for work site injuries from the employer. As a result, an injured worker can only obtain full recovery for pain and suffering and lost wages if the worker has a "third-party" claim against a business, corporation or person other than the worker's employer.
