Do You Have Two Separate Claims?
If you are injured on the job, you are entitled to claim workers’ compensation benefits. However, if your accident was due to defective equipment or a safety violation, you may be eligible for additional compensation to cover your future wage losses and to compensate you for your pain and suffering. This is done by filing what is known as a third-party claim. In many cases, the compensation received from the third-party claim can far exceed that received from the workers’ compensation system.
Effectively managing third-party and workers’ compensation claims simultaneously can be a complex undertaking, requiring the kind of expertise and experience Boxer & Gerson, LLP attorneys have exemplified over many years. We understand the potential pitfalls that can limit the total compensation in dual claims. Properly managed, such cases can maximize the benefits you receive after your accident.
Among our successful cases was a $2 million dollar settlement for a Teamster warehouseman who was hit and injured by a defective forklift. We have handled many similar workers’ compensation and third-party cases over the years.
After an industrial accident, you have one opportunity to get the medical care, benefits and compensation you need to recover to the fullest extent possible. Boxer & Gerson, LLP will work tenaciously to help you get all of the care and benefits you deserve.
