Justice for the injured

Some employers do not have workers’ compensation insurance. In other cases, a third party, such as a vehicle or tool manufacturer, leasing company, other contractor onsite, or utility, may have contributed to a serious or fatal injury. In these cases, our personal injury lawyers at Frenkel & Frenkel can pursue compensation by bringing legal action against that party. If your employer or coworker was negligent and harmed you or your employer was grossly negligent in adhering to OSHA safety regulations, contact Frenkel & Frenkel for assistance.

Cases of gross negligence

In certain limited situations, employees can sue their employers even if they offer workers’ compensation. This occurs when an employee dies due to an employer’s gross negligence.
If a third party was involved, you have a legal right to seek compensation through a claim or lawsuit.

Examples of third parties include the following:

  • Another work crew on the job site
  • The manufacturer of a defective product
  • Another driver in a car, truck, or commercial vehicle accident

A third-party lawsuit can be filed to pursue compensation far above the benefits you would normally receive through workers’ compensation.

Traumatic brain injury

This type of injury occurs when a person suffers a strong blow to the head. It can cause the temporary dysfunction of brain cells and, in more severe cases, bruising, bleeding, torn tissues, or other damage that can lead to long-term complications or even death.

Spinal cord injury

An injury to the spinal cord may lead to severe pain, a loss of feeling, respiratory problems, and even the loss of motor function. Severe spinal cord injuries can consist of cervical spinal injuries, thoracic spinal injuries, and lumbar spinal injuries.


Severe spinal cord injuries may sometimes even lead to paralysis. This can include paraplegia, quadriplegia, or, more simply, a loss of sensory or motor function.

Severe burns

These are more serious injury types due to the cost, pain, and potential damage and can include fire, scalding, chemicals, and electrical burns.


Due to negligence, some workplace accidents can result in the loss of limbs.

Vision or hearing loss

An industrial accident can lead to the loss of vision or hearing, impacting every aspect of life.

Toxic exposure

Exposure to some chemicals can cause permanent damage to the lungs and other organs or cause various cancers in the future.

Types of compensation in industrial accident cases

If your claim is successful, workers’ compensation can potentially cover several different benefits, which include:

  • Lost wages and income, which may be on a temporary or permanent basis (partial or total disability)
  • Any necessary medical expenses you have as a result of the accident
  • If a worker were killed on the job, their beneficiaries could receive death benefits
  • Funeral and burial expenses

If you were injured on the job, it is crucial to take specific steps to help you obtain the best possible results for your claim. Ensure that you report the incident, seek medical attention, and contact an attorney to assist in filing a claim. Working with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help facilitate the results you need.
