Sound Advice for Wisconsin Work Injury Claims
The personal injury lawyers of Kaminski & Pozorski represent people who have been hurt on the job.

In some situations, you’ll have the right to pursue both legal remedies. Contact our office in Manitowoc for advice about the legal options that apply in your situation.

The workers’ compensation system protects workers by providing lost income and medical treatment for work-related injuries without the need to prove anyone’s negligence. You can’t sue your own employer or a fellow worker, however, and the range of losses covered by workers’ comp falls fall short of the damages you can recover in a personal injury lawsuit.
At Kaminski & Pozorski, our attorneys can review the circumstances of your injury and advise you about your rights. If you can file for workers’ compensation and at the same time develop a case for personal injury damages, we are well equipped to handle both cases.
We advise workers with injuries ranging from fractures or herniated discs to disabling brain or spinal cord trauma. The kinds of cases we handle include:
- Construction site accidents
- Freight yard or warehouse accidents
- Truck or commercial vehicle accidents
- Shipyard accidents
- Manufacturing injuries
- Health care or home assistance injuries
- Strains and sprains caused by lifting accidents
- Falls from heights
- Industrial equipment or machinery accidents
In a Wisconsin workers’ compensation case, the focus will be on the nature and extent of your injuries, connecting the injury to your job, the amount of time you’ll be away from work, and making sure that your injuries are properly diagnosed and treated. There won’t be any need to prove negligence on the part of anyone.
In a personal injury case, it will be necessary to prove fault on the part of someone other than your employer. Defendants might include a property owner, an equipment manufacturer, or the driver of the vehicle that struck a commercial driver.
Our main client service area extends from Manitowoc County to Green Bay, to Fond du Lac and Sheboygan. For a free consultation about your legal options in a work injury case, contact Kaminski & Pozorski in Manitowoc.
