New York City Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents Lawyer

A massive metropolis like New York City would not be what it is today without manufacturing. However, industrial and manufacturing jobs can be challenging and dangerous. Oftentimes, accidents can have life-threatening consequences.

If you or someone you know has been injured in an industrial or manufacturing accident in New York City, you should seek legal counsel. At Shulman & Hill, we pride ourselves on a great track record of success in industrial and manufacturing accident cases.

Unfortunately, industrial accidents are common in New York City. They can lead to severe injuries and may prevent a person from working. Whether this unexpected leave of absence is temporary or permanent, it can be challenging to keep up with your medical bills and other expenses. If you were hurt while on the job, our experienced lawyers can work hard to help you pursue the compensation you may be entitled to.

Understanding New York City Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents

Like many workplace accidents, industrial and manufacturing accidents can lead to severe injury, loss of wages, and even permanent disability. Most of these accidents can and should be prevented by your workplace. Companies, property owners, and contractors owe all workers a duty of care by creating safe working conditions.

The causes of industrial and manufacturing accidents can vary, but negligence is often a determining factor. Companies sometimes commit safety violations or do not maintain their equipment according to the proper guidelines. They may also not properly train their employees on what needs to be done.

Are You Eligible for Compensation After an Industrial or Manufacturing Accident?

If you or a loved one were harmed due to an industrial or manufacturing accident, contact our personal injury lawyers in New York City right away. The more time we have, the more likely we are to maximize the amount of compensation you can pursue.

Each accident is unique. In most cases, if you were injured while you were working, you will be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Sometimes, you may be able to pursue additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit if a party other than your employer, like a property owner or contractor, contributed to your accident.

You likely do not realize how much compensation you could be eligible for in the aftermath of an accident. Our expert attorneys may be able to help you recover money for physical injuries, medical bills, any lost wages, and the pain and suffering you had to endure as a result of the accident.

If you need to be hospitalized after the accident, then you will likely have a considerable number of medical bills. Although you may be inclined to pursue a case on your own in hopes of reaching a settlement on your own, you will likely be more successful with legal representation. The team at Shulman & Hill can help you navigate the challenges of the litigation process you may not be able to anticipate.

If you pursue the case on your own, an insurance company may offer you a settlement that only meets your immediate needs. Although they may cover some of your expenses for medical bills, they may not account for lost wages or any physical or mental therapy you need. In these instances, an attorney has the experience necessary to navigate these difficult encounters with an insurance company and put your long-term health and well-being first.

What Qualifies as an Industrial and Manufacturing Accident

Industrial and manufacturing accidents can occur at any job, but they are most common at construction sites, chemical plants, mining locations, or manufacturing facilities.

Industrial accidents can include:

  • Falls
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Explosions or chemical fires
  • Chemical exposures or burns
  • Machinery or equipment-related accidents
  • Repetitive stress injuries

If you are not sure if your injury qualifies, our New York City attorneys can review your case for free to let you know your options.

Why Pursuing Compensation is Important

After an accident, you may be feeling considerable financial pressure. You may have costly medical expenses or even normal household bills you are unable to pay if you cannot work. To make matters worse, manufacturing accidents can have devastating effects on one’s psyche. Although not a physical ailment, one’s mental health should be among their top concerns after an accident.

Avoiding Workplace Accidents

As previously mentioned, it is critical that your workplace provide resources to avoid injury and foster a safe environment for all workers. Despite this duty of care, you may also want to ensure that you are safe at work by checking that your employer has proper safety processes in place.

Does your job offer safety training? If not, they may be violating OSHA guidelines. It is important that companies that employ high-risk workers hold safety meetings with their staff. Doing so can help to prevent accidents.
