The respected New York Workers’ Compensation law firm Katz, Leidman, Freund & Herman has been serving the communities of New York City, the Bronx, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island for over 50 years in work-related injury cases. The firm continues to achieve significant victories, and is known for their zealous advocacy for injured workers in all industries.
The firm has achieved some significant victories for injured clients in recent months, including recovering $150,000 for a worker who fell on the job and suffered a hip fracture, $117,000 in a settlement for a delivery driver who injured his right knee pushing a heavy hand truck on the job, as well as helping to secure $2.9 million for an elevator mechanic who fell down broken stairs in the building in which he was working, injuring his head, left leg and left arm.
As with any work related injury case, each person has a unique degree of injury, and how the case is addressed can significantly impact the final settlement as well as benefits. There could be options to secure compensation beyond workers’ compensation benefits when a third party contributed to the injury, whether a building owner, manager, equipment company, utility company or others.
It is extremely important that workers who are injured recover enough compensation to pay medical bills, and to cover the costs of living. There are other damages that could be pursued, based upon the details of the case. If you or your loved one has been injured on the job, you will be well served to call the firm for assistance. The legal team has extensive knowledge and experience in workers’ compensation law, as well as personal injury law, and when the firm takes on a case, every possible form of compensation will be pursued.
