Are you a grocery store employee who suffered an injury on the job?

Are you worried you could have been exposed to COVID-19?

Did you lose wages due to a hospital stay?

  • Trigger finger
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tendinitis
  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Epicondylitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Your employer should be helping reduce the risk of injuries at the grocery store you work at. Employers should consider:

  • Force and the amount of effort required to perform a task
  • Awkward and static postures and positions that could lead to injuries
  • Contact stress, such as touching sharp objects
  • Repetition, such as performing the same movements throughout a shift

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

"I’ve known the folks at Kaufman and Kaufman for more than 30 years. Correct - I said 30 years. The Kaufman’s have *always* done the right thing, especially when it’s not easy. Trust, in 2022, is hard. Trusting the Kaufman’s, in 2022, is simple."

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."

"The Kaufman team is very professional and knowledgeable about the work comp laws . They guided me in every step of the process, and if I ever have to do this again , they would be my first call. Without them i wouldn't have been able to pay my bills, and provide for my family. Thanks again to Kaufman and Kaufman for allowing my family to survive."
