If you have been injured while working on a construction site please contact us for a free consultation.

Workers Compensation 

It's a sad reality that some employers knowingly or unknowingly subject their employees to unsafe working conditions. Unfortunately, when this happens, workers can suffer in more ways than one. From life-altering injuries that demand ongoing medical treatment to lost wages, workplace accidents can hurt employees physically, financially, and emotionally.


Many injuries that happen at work are simple accidents. In these cases, you may be able to obtain workers compensation to alleviate some of the financial stress after you've been harmed. However, in limited circumstances, if you were injured because your employer knowingly exposed you to unsafe conditions or failed to take safety measures, you may be allowed to seek compensation by filing a lawsuit.

Moreover, if the negligence of a third party (a person or company other than your employer) contributed to causing your injury, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against that party-even if you're also receiving workers' compensation benefits from your employer.

Korman & Van Arsdale can help you determine whether you have grounds to file a lawsuit against a third party or even against your employer. If you do, you may be able to recover damages for lost income, medical expenses and pain and suffering.

After a workplace accident, you may feel as if you're alone and without options. Don't let these negative feelings consume you. Instead, empower yourself by contacting us for your free consultation.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Being involved in an auto accident is a frightening experience that can drastically change your life within seconds. A car accident can cause debilitating physical injuries, emotional trauma, and costly property damage. Furthermore, a serious car accident injury that prevents you from returning to your job (or that limits the number of hours you can work) can be financially devastating. Even an accident that occurs at a low speed, or that doesn't result in much damage to your car, can cause physical injuries.

If you've been involved in a car accident, it's important to take steps to protect your legal rights, before it's too late. If you've recently been hurt in a motor vehicle accident, Korman & Van Arsdale can help you by:


  • Investigating your accident to compile evidence
  • Negotiating on your behalf with the other driver's insurance company
  • Helping you file for uninsured motorist benefits under your own insurance policy
  • Filing and pursuing a lawsuit on your behalf if negotiations do not lead to a successful settlement
