Protecting Your Workers’ Comp Benefits

By Eugene Bruno on February 27, 2024

Eugene Bruno & Associates has been handling car accidents and other injury claims for over 35 years, and we’ve seen it all. When a client is injured while working, they actually have two claims: a workers’ comp claim and a civil claim against the third party who hurt them. Not all injury law firms are set up to handle both claims as effectively as Eugene Bruno & Associates.

We are experienced and understand what benefits are available through workers’ comp, and we work hand in hand with workers’ comp specialists to ensure our clients get all the additional benefits they are due. Let us put our network to work for you to maximize your compensation.

Imagine that you’re driving your car to pick up something for your boss when someone runs a red light and T-bones your vehicle. It can be difficult to know which insurance company is responsible to pay that claim. In fact, there are multiple claims involving multiple insurance companies. Don’t miss out because you didn’t know where to file your claim. Because it is a work-related injury, you have workers’ comp benefits available to you, but those benefits are not as generous as the additional benefits Eugene Bruno & Associates can obtain for you by filing an additional claim against the other driver’s insurance. Plus, our legal team is experienced in investigating additional potential compensation for you, such as disability insurance or other employer-provided insurance you may not even be aware of.

Workers’ comp benefits will cover your medical treatment, but probably not all of the treatment you want or need. Workers’ comp doctors just want to get you back to work as soon as possible, but you may need more time or more treatment to get back to your old self. Also, workers’ comp benefits will pay you temporary disability while you can’t work, but it’s likely to run out more quickly than you can recover, and you will only get about 60% of your full paycheck. In both cases, working with Eugene Bruno & Associates will ensure that you receive all of these workers’ comp benefits, plus additional benefits like 100% of the medical treatment you need, regardless of when workers’ comp approves it, and 100% reimbursement for all of the pay you miss because of your injury.

Hiring Eugene Bruno & Associates means you will not have to worry about multiple claims and coordinating the benefits you may be owed under multiple insurance policies. Let us handle it while you focus on recovery. After your settlement, Eugene Bruno & Associates handles all of the reimbursement issues too. That means when you receive your settlement check from Eugene Bruno & Associates, 100% of that money is yours. You’ve earned it. We’ll take care of all the details.

Lots of lawyers claim to know personal injury, but not a lot of injury law firms have 35+ years of experience and a network of specialists like Eugene Bruno & Associates does. Let us put our experience and our network to work for you to ensure that you get all of the workers’ comp benefits you deserve, plus everything else too.

The intersection of workers’ comp and personal injury cases can be a complicated area of law for many attorneys, but Eugene Bruno & Associates has 35+ years of experience you can rely on to get all of your claims settled for maximum value.
