What Does a Work Injury Lawyer From Shulman & Hill Do?

The Bronx workers’ compensation lawyers at Shulman & Hill can build a case to help clients recover compensation. We may assist you by:

  • Providing you with an over-the-phone case review at no charge
  • Collecting evidence to make your case stronger

Throughout the process, we offer you legal advice about seeking compensation after your workplace injury. If you can file a personal injury lawsuit, our personal injury lawyer in the Bronx can:

  • Investigate your case, so we know exactly what happened
  • Collect evidence to support your lawsuit
  • Identify the party or parties who caused your injury
  • Contact the liable party and their representatives so you do not have to handle these communications
  • Fight hard to get you fair reimbursement

When you file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, our lawyers can:

  • Alert all of the involved parties about your injury and about your claim for benefits
  • Collect evidence to prove your injury is work-related and that the injury entitles you to the benefits you are seeking
  • Speak with your employer or their insurance company to clarify your claim or work out any disagreements

Finally, if you qualify to file both a lawsuit and a workers’ compensation claim, we would be happy to assist you with both cases. This is a big convenience and time-saver for you, as you would not have to hire two separate law firms to handle the separate aspects of your case.

What Work Injury Compensation Can You Receive?

There is a difference between filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits and filing a lawsuit. For example:

Filing a Claim for Workers’ Compensation Benefits

You can typically receive two main types of benefits in a workers’ compensation claim: lost income and medical bills. These benefits could:

  • Provide you with the money you need to cover your medical costs
  • Compensate you for a portion of your usual income
  • Enable you to stay home from work until you recover

If you file a wrongful death claim for a lost loved one, you and your family may qualify for survivors’ benefits, which could help you pay for various end-of-life expenses.

Compensation You May Receive from a Lawsuit

You could also recover compensation for medical expenses and lost income through a personal injury lawsuit. This could make up for the rest of your lost income and help you pay for future medical treatments.

However, unlike a workers’ compensation claim, which provides compensation only for financial losses, a lawsuit enables you to seek damages for pain and suffering. This means the liable party does not just pay for your financial losses but for the physical suffering you experienced, as well.

There Are Time Limits for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Generally, you must file a lawsuit within three years of the injury, according to CPLR § 214. According to the New York Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB), you must notify your employer of the injury within 30 days and file a claim with the WCB within two years.

While there may be circumstances that could affect these deadlines, you should get started on your case as soon as you can. Doing so could:

  • Allow us to find evidence that supports your case
  • Show a stronger connection between the workplace incident and your injury

When you work with our work injury lawyer in the Bronx, we will explain any deadlines that could apply to your case.

Preventing Work Injuries in the Bronx

Depending on what kind of job you have, you may face many different risks. For example:

There are ways to minimize your risk of suffering these types of injuries—for example, your employer could provide quality work materials and safety training. If any of these workplace rules were violated, it could help your case.

Unfortunately, even if you are always as careful as possible while on the job, you could still get injured if:

  • A contractor you work with does not fulfill the terms of their contract
  • A piece of equipment you use breaks or malfunctions
  • The owner of the property you work on is aware of unsafe practices and does nothing to stop them

Shulman & Hill will evaluate your case when you reach out to us. No matter how your workplace injury happened, we can help you seek the compensation to which you are entitled.
