Good News: we will also handle your workers’ compensation claim.
most firms send workers’ compensation claimS to other attorneys, CREATING MORE work for CLIENTS. we don’t.
In New York, with limited exceptions, you cannot sue your employer through a personal injury lawsuit. If you are injured while working, you are entitled to recover Workers’ Compensation benefits, which cover medical bills and a percentage of lost wages. However, many injured workers can also bring a lawsuit against a “Third Party,” such as a general contractor, property owner or maintenance company. In the Third Party lawsuit, injured workers can be compensated for their pain and suffering and also made whole for medical bills and lost income not covered through Workers’ Compensation.
EEP’s Workers’ Compensation Group only handles our own clients’ Workers’ Compensation claims. This benefits our clients, who would otherwise need to engage multiple law firms when injured on the job.
