If you have been seriously injured in a workplace accident, you need the assistance of an attorney. Without someone to stand up for your rights, you may not receive the medical care and compensation you need to fully recover.
At Bentoff & Duber, we have been representing injured workers for over 45 years. Over this time, our firm has helped thousands of people obtain workers' compensation benefits. We also represent workers in third-party accident claims. We work to obtain maximum compensation for our clients — and get them the medical care and rehabilitation services they need. Don't take chances with your health. Contact us for a free consultation.
Do You Have a Third-Party Claim?
Workers' compensation pays benefits for medical care, rehabilitation services, lost income and disability. If your injury happened because of the negligence of a third-party, you may be able to obtain compensation beyond what is provided by the workers' compensation system. In some cases, this can far exceed the compensation you receive from workers' compensation.
Common third-party claims arise from:
- Negligence by a contractor or sub-contractor
- Defective tools and equipment
- On-the-job vehicle accidents caused by someone other than yourself
A third-party claim can enable you to obtain compensation for your pain and suffering, in addition to your workers' compensation benefits. You can also obtain compensation for injuries caused by safety violations in your workplace.
