Worker's Compensation
If you are injured or become ill at your workplace or at a work-related activity, you may be eligible for workers compensation - regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job. You are entitled to workers compensation benefits even in the absence of your employer's fault or negligence.

Marc I. Baretz has assisted workers in receiving fair compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained in the workplace for more than 35 years. We help workers obtain coverage for their workers compensation claims, including:
-Compensation for permanent disability
-Dependents' recovery for worker's death
-Lost wages or salary
-Rehabilitation expenses
-Retraining costs

Waiving workers compensation
Accepting workers compensation limits your rights to other remedies against a negligent employer. A personal injury claim can include compensation for general damages and pain and suffering, whereas a workers compensation claim cannot. Marc Baretz is skilled at analyzing whether you should waive a workers compensation claim and seek recovery for negligence in civil court, or if you should also pursue a negligent third party.
