Hackensack Workplace Accident Injuries Attorneys
At The Epstein Law Firm, we represent injured workers. If you have suffered an on-the-job injury, we can help you explore all options for compensation, including workers’ compensation and third-party liability.
If you have been injured at work, contact our Hackensack workplace injury lawyers or call our office at 201-918-3560. We provide free consultations and can meet with you at our office, or if your injuries limit your mobility, we can make arrangements to meet with you at the hospital or another location of your choice.
We routinely encourage injured workers to immediately complete paperwork to document the accident, the notice to the employer, and the injuries. Many workers are concerned that if they report an injury that they will be fired, but employers cannot retaliate against you for your injuries.
Most people assume that the only source of compensation for an on-the-job injury is through workers’ compensation. However, if a third party (someone other than your employer) is responsible for injuries that occurred while you were working, it may be possible to file a lawsuit against that individual or party.
At The Epstein Law Firm, in addition to helping injured workers file for work comp benefits, we help clients determine any and all third parties that may be responsible for their work injury. Some possible third-party liability claims may involve:
- A negligent co-worker
- The driver of another car, if an accident involved a work vehicle
- The manufacturer of a dangerous product such as asbestos, chemicals, unsafe tools or defective machinery
- A negligent property owner
Our attorneys have handled numerous workplace injury cases, and understand the intricacies of a third-party liability claim. We help clients determine the party or parties responsible for their workplace injury, and aim to seek maximum compensation on their behalf.
