Our very own Annemarie Pantazis was recently featured on a special podcast episode of “Work Comp Today.” Ms. Pantazis spoke with fellow attorneys Bernard and David Nomberg of Nomberg Law Firm.
About the “Work Comp Today” Podcast
Each month, Bernard and David Nomberg invite a special guest to discuss current hot topics, national news and trending workers’ compensation cases, as well as how existing workers’ comp laws impact those cases.
During the episode featuring Ms. Pantazis, they talked extensively about 5 recent workers’ compensation cases from across the country. Together, the 3 attorneys provided an insightful analysis of each of these cases.
Listening to the attorneys talk about what kinds of accidents and injuries are compensable is fascinating and allows listeners a peek behind the curtain of workers’ compensation law. The gravedigger seeking a mental injury claim at 24:35 and the exploding energy drink at 21:40 were highlights of the show.

“I really enjoy representing injured folks,” said Annemarie. “I do all comp, all the time. What I find fascinating about workers’ comp is it’s just pervasive; it’s everywhere. You wouldn’t think when you read the news that a lot of what you see does have a workers’ comp component to it.”
During the podcast, Bernard Nomberg brought to light a good point about speaking with an attorney about a workers’ comp situation. He noted:
“When you get a new potential client who calls and says ‘I just need two minutes of your time, I just need a minute of your time,’ and as I say to them ‘I’ll be glad to talk to you, but it’s just like if you went to a doctor’s office, or your accountant or any other professional that you need some input from—Do you really expect a 1-minute response to set you on your path? We want to be helpful, but we need more time than just one or two minutes.”
