The law firm of Katz, Friedman, Eagle, Eisenstein, Johnson & Bareck offers superior legal representation in a number of practice areas including:
Workers’ Compensation—By law every business must carry workers’ compensation insurance to protect their employees if they sustain an injury or illness at work. When workers file workers’ compensation claims they are suing the insurer not their employer. Not all injuries and illnesses are covered by workers’ compensation insurance and insurers do not always settle claims fairly. Hiring an attorney ensures your rights are protected. Our firm has successfully prosecuted thousands of workers’ compensation cases. We only represent the injured worker. Many law firms are willing to represent both employers and employees. We are only willing to represent the injured worker.
Personal Injury—If someone is injured because of the intentional actions or negligence of someone else, that person may be able entitled to monetary damages. Our attorneys are experienced in handling a wide variety of personal injury cases from medical malpractice and automobile accidents to construction accidents.
Social Security Disability—If you cannot work because of an injury or illness that is expected to last at least a year, you may be entitled to benefits from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Obtaining these benefits, however, can be a difficult process that often ends in denial. Our knowledgeable attorneys can represent your case before the Administrative Law Judge and help win a favorable decision.
Labor Union Disputes—Our firm represents several major labor unions, and our attorneys have been involved in some of the most significant labor disputes in the last several decades. Our experience in representing labor unions has been invaluable in helping us successfully prosecute workers’ compensation cases.
False Claims Act—Commonly known as “whistleblower” lawsuits, these cases involve individuals (Relators) who file lawsuits on behalf of the government. Under the False Claims Act, the Relator must have knowledge that the defendant has engaged in fraud against the government. A small percentage of our practice is focused on these claims.
Employee Rights Claims—We represent employees in cases that involve failure to pay overtime earnings, Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) rights, sexual harassment, discrimination, and Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) claims.
