Brooklyn Utility Worker Injuries Lawyer

Brooklyn’s utility workers are unsung heroes of New York City. Although the work they do often goes unnoticed and underappreciated, it plays a critical role in keeping the city running. However, it can also be relatively dangerous at times. Falls, electrocutions, and other injuries are always possibilities for utility workers in Brooklyn.

If you have been injured in a utility work-related accident, you should consider contacting a Brooklyn utility worker injuries lawyer at Shulman & Hill. By partnering with us, we can help you seek compensation for your losses. Whether you have expensive medical bills piling up or are missing out on your full earning potential while you stay home from work to recover, our team can fight to get the help you need to heal.

Common Brooklyn Utility Worker Injuries

A range of factors can influence the types of injuries you may sustain if you are involved in an accident while performing your duties as a Brooklyn utility worker. Examples of injuries you may sustain include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Burns
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Spinal cord injuries (which may lead to paralysis or similar long-term problems)
  • Head trauma (which can cause long-term cognitive issues or mental/emotional health difficulties)
  • Neck, shoulder, and knee injuries

Utility workers can sometimes be involved in accidents that tragically result in death. Losing a loved one unexpectedly because they were involved in a workplace accident is a devastating experience. Although no amount of money can bring them back, it is important to understand that your family may be entitled to compensation to help ease the financial burdens created by their loss.

The Aftermath of a Brooklyn Utility Worker Accident

After being injured in an on-the-job accident, the difficulties you may face can vary depending on the severity of your injuries. They may include:

  • Struggling to pay unexpected medical bills
  • Being unable to return to work due to limited mobility. If you cannot return to work, you may not be able to bring home a paycheck until you have fully recovered. In this case, paying for your medical bills could be even more challenging than it already is.
  • Undergoing long-term rehabilitation
  • Enduring a diminished quality of life

You may be entitled to compensation for these losses and struggles. You can begin the recovery process by filing a workers’ compensation claim. However, it is important to keep in mind that workers’ compensation benefits may not compensate you for all the losses you incur as a result of your Brooklyn utility worker injuries.

If it is determined that another party’s negligence may have caused your accident, you may be able to seek additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party.

If you are injured while working, you cannot file a lawsuit against your employer. However, you can file a lawsuit against a negligent property owner, general contractor, or subcontractor. A personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn can review your case and determine if you have grounds to seek further compensation from potentially liable parties.

How a Utility Worker Injuries Law Firm in Brooklyn Can Help

New York law requires that most employers purchase workers’ compensation insurance. As the name implies, this form of insurance is meant to provide employees with an easy way of seeking compensation for certain losses if they are ever hurt on the job.

However, actually securing a settlement after filing a workers’ compensation claim can be more difficult than one might expect. You may be more likely to receive the benefits you are entitled to if you have a Brooklyn utility worker injuries lawyer on your side. The following are key ways we can help:

Proving You Have a Valid Claim

Insurance companies are businesses. Like any other business, the goal of an insurance company is to maximize profits and minimize losses.

Unfortunately, this means that some insurers do not actually want to pay claimants for their full range of losses. When insurance companies receive workers’ compensation claims, some adjusters are encouraged to find reasons to deny them.

An adjuster might argue your accident was not truly work-related. Adjusters may even claim a worker deliberately tried to injure themselves in hopes of securing payment.

Our workers’ compensation lawyers in Brooklyn can leverage our vast resources to thoroughly investigate your case. Our investigation can yield evidence showing why you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

Pursuing Compensation in a Utility Worker Accident in Brooklyn

You may not be thoroughly aware of all the losses and damages for which you may be compensated.

If you are filing a workers’ compensation claim, you may be entitled to money for your medical expenses as well as your loss of wages while you are unable to work.

A personal injury lawsuit can result in additional compensation for medical costs and decreased earnings, as well as money for pain and suffering.

Our Brooklyn utility worker injury lawyers can review all the details of your case to ensure the compensation you receive is fair. Because insurance companies can be difficult to work with, it is often necessary to negotiate with them. In some cases, the dispute may need to be resolved in a trial.
