Injuries can happen anywhere. When they happen at work, you need an attorney well-versed in on-the-job injuries. The Law Offices of Harold I. Resnic takes on employers and their insurance companies to make sure you receive the compensation you need to move forward.
To qualify as a workplace injury, the accident must have taken place while you were working, regardless of whether you were on site or traveling. Workplace accidents might be caused by:
Types of injuries suffered at work vary greatly, but may include:
Some workplace injuries even result in death. In that case, we can file an action on behalf of the victim’s family for damages to address the loss.
In a workplace accident case, there are two potential avenues — filing a workers’ compensation claim or filing a personal injury lawsuit. Workers’ compensation is employer-provided no-fault insurance that pays your medical expenses and lost wages, no matter how the accident occurred. However, if you suspect your injuries were caused by your employer’s negligence, seek legal advice before accepting workers’ comp benefits. Once you accept a workers’ compensation payment, you forfeit your right to pursue other remedies against a negligent employer.
The Law Offices of Harold I. Resnic successfully employs a proven, methodical approach to help injured workers maximize their compensation. The firm’s attorney consults top experts in relevant fields — including trauma doctors, chiropractors, pharmacists, forensics engineers, mechanics and accident reconstruction analysts. These experts are available to deliver clear, compelling testimony that explains the cause and extent of your injuries.
