After a workplace accident results in a serious injury, you need to take the steps that can enable you to recover. You owe it to yourself and your family to obtain medical care and compensation for your lost wages. To do this, you may need the services of an attorney, especially if your accident was caused by the negligence of a third party.
Forman & Cardonsky is an experienced personal injury law firm with extensive experience in cases involving third-party workplace claims. We work to help our clients get the medical care, rehabilitation services and compensation they need to recover to the fullest extent possible.
In representing you, our goal will be to maximize the compensation you receive.
If your on-the-job injury was caused by a third party such as a contractor, sub-contractor, or vehicle driver, you may have a third-party claim in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. The third-party claim can include compensation for your physical and emotional suffering as well as payment for your medical expenses. This can greatly increase the amount you receive, particularly when compared to what you would get from a workers’ compensation claim alone.
However, these dual claims must be handled with care. A mistake on one claim could jeopardize your ability to file the other.
Forman & Cardonsky has been representing victims of workplace injuries for decades. Our work has included numerous cases involving both workers compensation and third-party workplace claims. We understand the complex interactions of these dual claims and how to maximize the total compensation our client receives.
Our experience and case preparation skills enable us to negotiate successful settlements in many circumstances, allowing us to avoid lengthy and costly litigation. Robert J. Cardonsky is one of a select number of lawyers certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Civil Trial Lawyer. If necessary, we will litigate aggressively to achieve our client’s goals.
