Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation laws are designed to handle claims from employees who are injured on the job.  These laws are strict liability, which means that an injured worker need not establish fault and/or negligence on the part of the employer in order to collect benefits.  Still, the injury/illness must have been incurred in the course of employment in order for workers’ compensation to provide benefits.  As workers’ compensation law imposes strict liability on employers, it is the exclusive remedy for an employee’s injuries/illnesses arising out of the course of employment.  If a third party (such as a delivery service) were to be responsible for a condition that caused a worker’s damages, the worker might have a claim against that company.

Workers’ compensation is designed to protect workers and their dependents against the hardships from injury or death arising out of the work environment. It is intended to benefit the employee and employer alike. The employee receives money (usually on a weekly or biweekly basis) and medical benefits in exchange for forfeiting the common law right to sue the employer. The employer benefits by receiving immunity from court actions against them by the employee in exchange for accepting liability that is limited and determined.

Why Choose The Law Offices Of Joseph C. Rosenblit?

What distinguishes my work from many other attorneys are two characteristics. First, I have made it my mission to listen carefully to my clients, respond quickly to their needs and to be there for them in a way that holds their interests above all others, including myself. Any situation that arises I will be available to respond quickly and effectively. I pride myself on caring enough about my clients, day or night, weekday or weekend, so that if they call I will do all in my power to help. That is my pledge to you.

Secondly, I have always brought a creative approach to litigation. A seemingly simple motor vehicle accident may, when one investigates deeper, lend itself to an allegation of an inherently dangerous roadside condition in the way the area was designed or even maintained. Unmarked dangerous curves or views obstructed by foliage are examples. If the injured party happens to be a senior citizen there may be a basis for alleging elder abuse violations. As an attorney with 25 years of experience in personal injury law I will look at all possibilities when I evaluate, investigate and ultimately litigate your case.
