Legal Options For Work-Related Accidents Not On The Work Premises

Many times work-related accidents do not occur while you are physically on work premises. If you have sustained an injury away from work, you still have rights if the injury occurred in the course and scope of your employment.

At the Law Offices of Wesley M. Malowitz, I help injured workers recover rightful benefits following an accident away from work. Contact me to speak with an experienced Stamford, Connecticut, attorney.

Helping Victims Recover Following A Work-Related Injury

As an experienced workers' compensation attorney, I help injured clients recover benefits following all types of accidents away from work, such as:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents away from work: such as workers injured from falling down the stairs in a home in which repairs are being made (cable repairs, utility repairs, etc.) or a delivery person who trips over a dog leash on the porch steps
  • Dog bites/animal attacks away from work: such as a delivery person or lawn service person attacked by a dog or a construction subcontractor attacked while replacing the dining room cabinets in a home
  • Car/truck accidents away from work: such as a garbage truck driver or delivery truck driver injured in a truck accident while performing job duties or any other employee involved in a car accident in the scope of employment

Whether an injury is sustained while lifting boxes in the warehouse or in a car accident while running an errand for your boss — all work-related injuries are governed by workers' compensation laws. Generally, people who sustain on-the-job injuries may only seek compensation for medical expenses, wage loss, permanent disability, and other expenses by pursuing a workers' compensation. However, when an accident occurs away from work, there are often additional claims against at-fault parties other than your employer which may be pursued.

Providing Guidance Regarding Your Legal Options

I help clients understand their rights and pursue the full compensation they need and deserve. When workers' compensation benefits are paid and a third-party claim is settled at a later date, I have the experience and skill to effectively negotiate with your employer's insurance company so that minimal workers' compensation benefits are paid back. Creative discussions have resulted in significant reductions or even waivers of these claims for repayment.
