Medical Malpractice
Our lawyers will thoroughly review all medical records, take depositions of physicians and hospital personnel, and secure expert testimony. Medical malpractice claims are highly contested. When the time comes, we will be ready to go to trial.
When you go to a hospital or clinic to see a physician, have surgery or undergo another medical procedure, you are putting your health into the hands of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. You need to trust that these professionals will act in your best interests. Unfortunately, avoidable errors happen far too often and leave people like you with serious injuries.

Workers Compensation
The lawyers at The Perecman Law Firm work to make the process of filing for workers’ compensation benefits as easy as possible for our clients. You can make one phone call and our lawyers will handle all aspects of your case.
If you have been injured on the job, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your attorney is skilled and experienced enough to effectively handle your workers’ compensation benefits claim. It is also important to work with a lawyer who can handle all aspects of the process, including representing you in any personal injury claims.

We will identify the responsible parties, help you file your claim and keep you informed throughout the progress of your case.

Workers’ compensation only pays an injured worker for their medical expenses and a percentage of their lost wages. However, a personal injury claim can compensate an injured person for the full measure of their lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our lawyers will carefully review all of the facts of your case to determine all of the liable parties.
Injuries from Work Related Accidents

Our firm has handled workers’ compensation claims stemming from:

- Construction accidents, including scaffolding injuries
- Industrial accidents
- Unsafe work equipment and heavy machinery accidents
- Crane and forklift accidents
- Auto accidents while in the course of employment
- Failure to Provide Safety
- Plant Explosions
- Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
- Railroad Accidents/FELA
- Toxic Exposure On the Job
- Unsafe Work Equipment
- Back Injury

Injuries to the back, knee, shoulder and other areas of the body can not only have an impact in the present but can limit the ability to return to the same type of employment in the future. Our firm will advise you about temporary and permanent disability benefits and your best options for recovery.

What we do for our clients:

- Identify responsible employer
- File and handle workers’ compensation claim
- Handle all aspects of claim (hearings and depositions)

David Perecman

For the past 25 years as one of the leading personal injury lawyers in New York City, David Perecman has championed all types of personal injury cases, including commercial and residential construction accidents, premises accidents, automobile accidents and medical malpractice. Mr. Perecman has won millions of dollars for his clients over the course of his career, with $25 million in verdicts and settlements in the past year alone.

From the beginning of his legal practice, Mr. Perecman has proven himself to be a skilled and tenacious New York City personal injury lawyer. He founded the Perecman Firm in 1983 after winning a $600,000 verdict against the now-defunct department store Gimbels for falsely detaining an elderly woman when an antitheft device set off the alarm. Since then, he has taken dozens of personal injury cases to verdict and settled many more mid-trial. Among his more recent victories: a $15 million verdict for a construction worker, plus many other multimillion-dollar recoveries.

Mr. Perecman has become one of the top personal injury lawyers in New York City by combining extensive and relentless preparation with first-class litigation skills to achieve winning results. He starts planning his strategy as soon as a case comes in the door. Whether before a judge or a jury, he spares no expense in employing first-rate experts and cutting-edge technology to great persuasive effect. The personal injury verdicts he obtains are often double or triple-and sometimes many multiples of the settlement offers made by the defense prior to and during trial. "Every case has its weaknesses,"
