DO I HAVE A WORKERS COMPENSATION CLAIM AND IF SO HOW DOES IT WORK WITH ANY GENERAL PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?

ANSWER: If your injury or occupational illness was suffered on the job, you may have a workers compensation claim. We do not ordinarily practice in this area, but we can work with you to refer you to competent workers compensation counsel.

We frequently accept cases that involve work-related injuries that arise due to the negligence or wrongdoing of a third party; not the employer, such as an automobile collision experienced while on the job, or an injury resulting from a dangerous machine used on the job. In such situations, amounts paid through workers compensation may have to be repaid in the event of recovery against the responsible third party. We work with the employer and its insurer to negotiate any repayment to only a portion of what you may receive through workers compensation protection.
