EEP Law Fights for What Matters to You Most – Your Family and Your Future.

I cannot speak highly enough of Elefterakis, Elefterakis & Panek (EEP) for their outstanding legal representation in my accident case. From the moment I reached out to them, by way of a referral from my friend (who happens to be a plastic surgeon), they demonstrated unwavering dedication and commitment to achieving justice for me and my family.

Caring, empathetic and professional. They always answer all my questions or concerns when I call. They continue to go above and beyond. My father passed away a few weeks back and they sent a beautiful arrangement of flowers to the funeral home. They feel more like a friend/family than my attorney.

Tara

Thoughtful, helpful, informative and communicative! Carmen Sanchez was a wealth of info and always available to answer any questions I needed. They handled my car accident case with care and gave me my options, no pressure, just info and advice. Great thing is that they handle a wide variety of cases. All staff are professional and friendly and work diligently for you. Janice Rodriquez was also amazing.

All workers are entitled to a safe workplace. Know your rights!

Injury can be the fault of a 3rd party such as a contractor, property owner, etc. New York and New Jersey have specific safety standards and laws that owners and contractors must adhere to. These standards have been enacted to provide an important layer of protection for workers of all trades. While Union workers who are injured on the job are entitled to Workers’ Compensation, which covers medical bills related to the accident and a percentage of lost wages, additional compensation is in order when a third party is found negligent of their legal responsibility to provide a safe working environment.

We facilitate workers’ compensation claims in-house.

We’ve cultivated and grown an all-star team that is capable of staying in the fight for the long haul.

We know 3rd party law suits through first hand experience.

We’ve made a difference in the lives of our clients by helping them navigate a complicated process in their time of need. In the past 10 years we’ve represented over 300 clients.

EEP Law is a safety net for workers. Our injury attorneys get results that matter.
EEP Law is a safety net for workers – union members, city workers, state employees & undocumented workers.

Understanding what workers’ compensation can provide.

In New York, with limited exceptions, you cannot sue your employer through a personal injury lawsuit. If you are injured while working, you are entitled to recover Workers’ Compensation benefits, which cover medical bills and a percentage of lost wages. However, many injured workers can also bring a lawsuit against a “Third Party,” such as a general contractor, property owner or maintenance company. In the Third Party lawsuit, injured workers can be compensated for their pain and suffering and also made whole for medical bills and lost income not covered through Workers’ Compensation.

If you have been injured in a construction site accident as a result of a third party’s action, you are entitled to sue and recover damages for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, future medical treatment costs and a complete accounting of lost wages (including future wages as projected by a certified economist). Filing a personal injury construction accident lawsuit is the first and most crucial step to ensure that the individuals and family members affected regain their health while remaining on sound financial ground. Legitimate construction injury cases are looked on with compassion in the eyes of the law, and in many instances, those hurt on the job have been fairly and justly awarded millions in damages.

Countless construction workers are faced with debilitating injuries, lost wages and crippling medical expenses, and also live in fear of damaging relationships with employers or their union hall by filing for workers’ compensation or bringing a third-party lawsuit.

If you or a family member has been hurt or died as a result of a workplace accident, call us. Help starts here.

We’re experienced in representing union members including civil servants, state and city/municipal employees who have suffered workplace injuries. When you’re involved in a third-party workplace injury, in which a non-job-related factor is involved, recognizing a Workers’ Compensation claim can be even more complex.

So if you were injured at work, contact us. The consultation is free and without obligation.

Hard-working New Yorkers can count on us to fight for their rights and you can too. We’re the knowledgeable, fearless New York personal injury legal team you want on your side.
