You Can Collect Worker's Comp Benefits and Personal Injury Damages, Too
At Norton | Bowers | Hofstra, P.C., we can ensure that you collect the full range of your damages, including pain and suffering, from the negligent person responsible for your injuries. Workers' Compensation benefits do not generally cover many of these losses. Our attorney's fee will be based only on your personal injury recovery, not your workers' compensation benefits.
If You Run Into Problems with Your Workers' Comp Claim, We Can Help
If your benefits are suspended, reduced, or terminated early, or if your employer's insurer disputes the extent of your injuries, we can refer you to a knowledgeable lawyer who can help resolve the problem. If your worker’s compensation claim proceeds smoothly, however, you may never need them to hire a workers' compensation attorney. We will pursue the at-fault driver for your injuries while working with, or negotiating with, your workers' compensation insurer who is certain to want reimbursement for benefits they paid to you or on your behalf.
We represent truck drivers, cab drivers, bus drivers, Uber and Lyft drivers, delivery drivers, construction drivers, and anyone else who was hurt in a truck or car accident while working. In some cases, passengers or crew members who weren't actually driving at the time of the accident will also be able to sue for personal injury damages while collecting workers' comp benefits. We also represent workers injured by third parties in non-auto related accidents such as slip and falls, dog bites, or other claims.
