Take photos, exchange information, call the police, and remain safe. When you do finally reach them, you often discover that your claim has been reassigned to a different adjuster who doesn’t know anything about you or your situation. Your case may appear simple to you and me, but insurance companies have a different agenda, and they view your claim differently. Sometimes, however, the damage to the relationship is too severe, or the attorney is simply unresponsive to the client’s requests.Read More
Workplace Accident Claim
In order to avail the benefits provided by workers’ compensation, you are required to prove that the injury or illness is related to your work. Rephrased in legal jargon, the unfortunate event must be “arising out of employment and occurring during the course of employment,” commonly abbreviated as AOE/COE. Know the rules that dictate whether or not an employee’s injury or illness is work-related and covered by the workers’ compensation.
Some exceptions exist. For example, injuries sustained while the worker was drunk or under the influence of illegal drugs are not covered by the workers’ comp.
Similarly, if you sustain an injury while having your lunch on company grounds (like the cafeteria) you are free to claim the benefits as the injury is work-related. However, there won’t be any workers’ comp coverage available if you were found doing something that is not permitted or if the act falls under some other exception to the coverage. For example, a Connecticut court discovered that in a case in which an employee was allegedly hurt while she was walking, the incident fell under the exception according to state laws regarding recreational activities. Different states have different laws concerning work-related injuries and you are required to know them.
Case of Wrongdoings: In some states, injuries inflicted due to the misconduct of a worker are still covered by the workers’ comp. Even when the worker is hurt while doing something that is not allowed by the employer, the worker may still be able to avail the benefits depending on the degree of the wrongdoing. Under the workers’ compensation act, employees cannot file a case for work-related injuries against their employer. However, depending on where you reside, the injuries are covered no matter whose fault it is.
Seek a lawyer
Many times a worker's injury or illness may be of a dubious origin, a gray area when it comes to understand worker's comp coverage. In these special circumstances, it is always worth seeking a lawyer’s expertise. The lawyer may be able to tell you whether or not you qualify for the benefits. As a lawyer is aware of your state laws he may be the best counsel in such matters.

Michael K. Eidman
Having spent over 39 years representing victims of personal injury and medical negligence, Michael Eidman continues to adapt to the ever-changing legal landscape. Until 1998, he formed, led and managed the personal injury and medical malpractice department of a busy general practice law firm. Then, as the litigation of personal injury and malpractice cases became more contentious and protracted, Mr. Eidman decided to devote more time to each client. In order to do so, he opened his own practice, which enabled him to dedicate his efforts to a few select, yet diverse, cases. Thanks to the reduced case-load, Mr. Eidman is able to work intimately with his clients, personally developing their cases from the initial client meeting through investigation and then through the entire litigation process until conclusion via settlement or trial. Some of these cases have been featured in The New York Times, in other local newspapers and on network news programs. His personable style and ability to simplify difficult medical concepts have overcome many challenging fact patterns, resulting in extremely favorable settlements and verdicts in cases involving birth injuries, general medical malpractice, traffic safety, construction accidents, police brutality, sexual abuse, unsafe premises, and car accidents. Over the years, Mr. Eidman has developed a reliable and highly qualified group of medical, engineering, economic and other experts, whose opinions and testimony help maximize each clients recovery. Owing in large part to his stellar reputation and thorough preparation, Mr. Eidman has been successfully resolving more cases via mediation, thanks in part to the thorough and incisive mediation statement that Michael and his assistant Daphne, prepare and submit in advance of each mediation. Consequently, clients benefit from a quicker and definitive resolution with fewer expenses. Michael is a member of the New York and New Jersey state and federal bars and is of counsel to law firms in both states which utilize his trial skills, experience, and track record.
