How Our Attorneys Help With Work Injury Cases in Brooklyn

We are a leading personal injury law firm in New York. With that title comes a long history of treating clients right and fighting hard to seek the compensation they need after a devastating injury.

Shulman & Hill offers many services to our clients. These include but are not limited to:

  • Dealing with deadlines: According to CPLR § 214, you generally have three years from the injury date to file a third-party lawsuit. Other deadlines apply to filing workers’ comp cases. We help clients work within these deadlines.
  • Building a case file: We can use information from many different sources to prove every aspect of your case. That includes the fact that you were injured at work and that you are asking for a fair amount of compensation.
  • Keeping everyone in touch: Instead of making you talk to the other parties yourself, we can relay messages between everyone involved in the case.
  • Determining a course of action: Do you qualify to file a lawsuit, apply for workers’ compensation, or both? We can tell you, so you do not leave any money on the table.
  • Answering questions: It is normal to have a lot of unanswered questions and concerns about the legal process. We encourage clients to come to us whenever they need more information.

Our Lawyers Can Build a Case for Your Work Injury Compensation

If you qualify to file a workers’ compensation case, you can receive benefits covering your medical care and part of your normal income – and one of our workers’ compensation lawyers can assist you with your claim. In addition, if you qualify to file a third-party lawsuit, you can also receive compensation for past and future medical expenses, past and future loss of income, and past and future pain and suffering.

In both situations, our work injury lawyer can investigate your case and determine how much compensation you may deserve. This way, you can pursue a fair amount of compensation for your accident. We can do this by collecting evidence such as:

  • Medical records: These records will show when you first sought attention for this injury, what treatments you already received, and what treatment you may need in the future.
  • Photos and videos: We can find out if anyone took a cell phone video of your accident or if a surveillance camera caught it on tape. If you took photos of your injuries, we can use those materials, too.
  • Witness statements: If anyone witnessed the accident, the events leading up to it, or the aftermath, we can call on them to corroborate your statements or fill in critical gaps.
  • Bills: When you pay to receive medical treatments, you may accumulate bills and receipts stating the amount you spent.
  • Financial records: To determine how much income you lost (or will lose), we need to know how much you regularly earned before the injury happened. Paystubs, tax statements, and testimony from your employer can confirm this.
  • Police reports: If someone reported your accident to the police, we can ask to see their report and any evidence they collected from the scene.

The type of evidence we use depends on what is available and the specifics of your case. The materials we collect can help establish important points of your case as we pursue damages. These points include:

  • Who is responsible: If you are filing a lawsuit, do you know who to sue for your injury? Our investigation can reveal any behavior that contributed to your accident.
  • How to get your money: The evidence can show whether you have grounds to file a lawsuit, file a claim for workers’ compensation, or both. This way, you do not waste time and resources on a legal action that is not right for you.

Compensation Available After a Work Injury

Our attorneys can tell you whether you can seek compensation through a workers’ compensation claim or file a third-party lawsuit against a contractor or a company.

In a workers’ comp case, your benefits may include:

  • Necessary medical expenses
  • A portion of your normal wages prior to the injury
  • Survivor benefits, if you lost a loved one to their injuries

If another party’s carelessness caused your injury and you can file suit, you could collect additional forms of compensation, such as for your past and future pain and suffering, among other damages.

We’ve won over $250 million for our past clients and will use our experience to seek what you deserve, too. While we cannot guarantee a particular result, as every case comes with unique factors, we will work to collect the maximum amount available in your case.

We Can Investigate How Your Work Injury Happened in Brooklyn

Brooklyn is home to many different industries and workplaces. Depending on where you work and what position you hold, you could be at an increased risk of being involved in some or all of these types of accidents:

  • Falls: This could mean slipping on a slick spot in the hallway or falling from scaffolding.
  • Motor vehicle accidents: Work-related car accidents can occur if a coworker hits you with a vehicle or if your employer does not adequately maintain the vehicle you drive.
  • Machinery accidents: To keep a workplace safe, workers need access to tools and machinery that are well-maintained and designed to do the job at hand.
  • Burns: Heat and explosions can cause burns, as can extreme cold or even certain chemicals. We have also represented clients after welding accidents.
  • Collapses: If the bridge, tunnel, building, or scaffolding you were working on suddenly fails, you could sustain catastrophic injuries.
  • Falling objects: Especially in the construction industry, heavy objects could fall and hit you in the head or shoulders, doing significant damage.
  • Toxic material exposure: Some professions require you to work with substances that increase your risk of contracting a serious illness. Occupational illnesses may also count as injuries.
  • Overuse injuries: Injuries such as repetitive stress injury or carpal tunnel may qualify as workplace injuries.

Even if you are part of a union, Shulman & Hill could help you build your case. We regularly represent union members and often work with:
