 Katz, Leidman, Grossman, Wolfe & Freund handle a variety of workers' compensation cases in the New York area. Besides managing claims that cover factory and office injuries, the legal staff at Katz, Leidman, Grossman, Wolfe & Freund assist clients who have been injured in auto-related accidents that occurred on the job.

 According to statistics compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, auto accidents continue to be the major cause of fatalities that occur on the job. Over a seven-year span (from 2003 to 2010), more than 1,200 employees per year lost their lives in highway mishaps. Workers involved in crashes on their work premises or off the freeway numbered just over 300 annually. In addition, almost 340 workers have died each year from being hit by a car or truck.

 The risk of becoming the victim of a work- related car crash is not confined to one field or industry. While truck drivers and bus drivers must follow comprehensive safety guidelines, workers in other fields are not as cognizant of the risks. Calculations show that an injury that results in the filing of a claim can cost an employer almost $75,000 in liability expenses for non-fatal injuries and $500,000 for fatal accidents.
