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.

Since founding The Perecman Law Firm in 1983, attorney David Perecman, along with the rest of our lawyers and staff, has helped victims of accidents and negligence in New York City recover over $400 million in verdicts and settlements. We handle more construction accidents cases every year than many personal injury lawyers have handled in their entire careers and continue to provide skilled and compassionate representation in every case.
We know how serious accidents can cause stress and emotion for clients and their families. When you need help from an attorney, talk with a law firm that has spent years working with people just like you.
For the past 30 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 $400 million in verdicts and settlements.
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.
