Piergrossi & Peterman, LLP
Representing Citizens of New York since 1967
In New York, employers are responsible to provide workers' compensation insurance. This is a no-fault system designed to cover medical expenses and lost wages, regardless of liability. Injured employees are entitled to benefits without the burden of proving fault. In return, injured workers cannot sue their employer for additional compensation, even if the employer's negligent actions caused the accident.
At Piergrossi & Peterman, LLP, we have more than 45 years of experience advocating for injured workers and accident victims throughout New York. We understand the complex interplay between workers' compensation and personal injury claims. Our top priority is to help injured clients obtain a full financial recovery.
If a third-party beyond your employer can be held responsible for causing the workplace accident, we will help you recover benefits above and beyond workers' compensation.

We have access to industry-leading experts, including OSHA experts and accident scene reconstructionists. Our legal team will determine if a third-party beyond your employer violated any OSHA requirements or safety regulations. We will also evaluate maintenance records and reports from the manufacturer to understand if the manufacturer could be held responsible for creating a faulty product. Our legal team will aggressively pursue a civil lawsuit against any at-fault third parties to help you obtain a full financial recovery.

We will take every measure possible to help you recover compensation for any medical expenses, rehabilitation care, lost wages and pain and suffering.
