Many workers who get hurt on the job have as many as THREE different cases they can bring. Workers' Compensation, Personal Injury, and Social Security Disability.
Not only does our paralegal Christopher Fernandez put in a full day at the firm, helping us fight for our Workers' Compensation clients--he also is a top law student at night--but he has ALSO now won the regional round of the highly prestigious 68th Annual National Moot Court Competition! Our entire staff, and all our clients, are well-familiar with Chris's intelligence, work ethic, and passion. As he now advances to the national rounds, the rest of the country will surely see what we do.
Congratulations to Christopher Fernandez, who has been an integral part of our firm for several years while also attending law school at night. Chris displayed his gift for persuasive oral argument at the finals of regional rounds of the 68th Annual National Moot Court Competition. We have no doubt he's going to take the rest of the country by storm!
Many people don't know that there is a legal connection between a workers' compensation case and a personal injury case that arise from the same accident. The law does not want the injured worker to recover 100% of his workers' compensation benefit and also 100% of his personal injury, or negligence, recovery. So an injured worker receiving workers' compensation must pay some of his personal injury proceeds back to the workers' compensation insurance company. This is true even with devastating injuries that come from scaffold accidents, or demolition or construction accidents, or elevator falls, where the disability may last a lifetime. However, there are ways to protect and maximize the benefits you need to protect yourself and your family. Today I want to tell you about the "Global" workers' comp/personal injury settlement.
You may assume that the only time you would be eligible for workers' compensation benefits would be if you suffered an injury in a workplace accident, but that is not the case. In reality, any New York worker who experiences repetitive stress injuries because of his or her job could also have a valid claim to these benefits.
ARREGLO "GLOBAL" DE DEMANDAS DE LESIONES PERSONALES / NEGLIGENCIA Y ACCIDENTES DE TRABAJO
Speaking up is an American principal, that all people deserve dignity when facing injustice. Whether you are in the country legally or not shouldn't affect your right to compensation, especially if something goes wrong and you end up in the hospital or injured for life while doing a job for someone.
THIS IS A TRAVESTY FOR WORKING MEN AND WOMEN!! We must do better starting right now to ensure that every workplace in New York is safe
