Detroit Workplace Accident Lawyers
Every person injured while on the job is entitled to workers' compensation benefits, but some workers may be eligible to pursue an additional third party claim seeking recovery for their full lost wages as well as a recovery for pain and suffering. At the Law Offices of Feldheim & Wilenkin, our lawyers can help you explore your full range of recovery options. Whether you suffered an injury caused by a defective product, an unsafe construction site accident, or any other workplace injury, we can help you maximize your compensation.
We recently obtained over one million dollars for a man injured in a bulldozer accident caused by the negligence of a general contractor. A herniated cervical disc prevented the man from returning to his job. In another case we recovered $500,000 for an ironworker who injured his neck when an overhead crane was not properly operated resulting in a non surgical injury that kept our client off work for almost two years. In both cases we were able to prove MIOSHA violations, even though the injuries were not properly reported.
At Feldheim & Wilenkin,we make sure our clients get all the workers compensation benefits they are entitled to and we pursue all viable third party claims that can be advanced on our clients behalf. This requires a prompt and thorough investigation of an accident, securing witness statements and hiring experts when necessary.Protecting the Rights of the Injured and Disabled in Michigan

While all injured workers are entitled to workers' compensation, there is a limit to the amount of benefits victims can receive under workers' compensation law. However, there is no limit to the amount of compensation available in a personal injury lawsuit. If someone besides your employer or a co-worker is responsible for the conditions that led to your workplace accident, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim in addition to your workers' compensation claim and maximize your recovery.
Our firm handles personal injury claims for on-the-job accidents involving a wide range of factors, including:
