We represent workers and their family members in cases involving accidents and injuries at work.
Every job or work environment has risk factors that can injure employees. You don’t need to be a coal miner or construction worker to get hurt on the job. Office workers damage back muscles lifting heavy file boxes, supermarket cashiers develop repetitive stress injuries from operating point-of-sale terminals, and delivery persons are involved in car accidents.
Injuries from your job can range from relatively minor strains, sprains and soft tissue damage to debilitating head injuries and organ failure. Any workplace contains risks that can lead to lifelong disabilities or death.
Our attorneys have handled a broad range of workplace accident claims, including those arising from:
- Lifting heavy boxes and equipment
- Falling merchandise, trade fixtures and other objects
- Dangerous or defective equipment
- Poorly maintained factories, offices and worksites
- Chemical and other toxic substance exposure
- Vehicle accidents
- Crush injuries
- Noise exposure
Accidents at Work Can Generate Multiple Claims and Additional Defendants
Workplace injuries generate expensive bills for medical care, physical and occupational therapy and rehabilitation. Injured employees also suffer lost wages, periods of disability and, in some cases, permanent or long term lost earning capacity.
Workers’ compensation usually pays for medical bills and lost earnings, but the workers’ comp system will not provide a recovery for pain and suffering embarrassment, humiliation and loss of life’s pleasures. A separate claim for personal injury can provide a worker with the missing compensation he or she needs to be made whole after an injury.
Aversa & Linn handles both workers’ compensation claims (when you are hurt while working for your employer) and personal injury cases (when you are hurt on the job because of the negligence of an individual or company that is not your employer).

When you get hurt at work your employer may not be the only one responsible for your injury. We will fight for you to hold everyone accountable.
We know that an injury on the job can disrupt your life and cause major financial hardships. Our lawyers and staff are ready to assist you as you recover from your pain and suffering, monetary losses and medical expenses.
In addition to your employer, we will investigate whether other parties could be responsible for your injuries, including:
- Property management companies
- Staffing companies
- Manufacturers of any products involved in the accident
Our team will analyze and develop a strategic plan that is specific to your case to keep it moving forward and get you results as quickly as possible. We will be in constant communication with you throughout the development of your case and always provide access to our team of attorneys and case managers. This high attention to detail and constant flow of information allows us to maximize your recovery.
