Pursuing Workers’ Compensation After a Work Injury

If your employer carries workers’ compensation insurance, you can apply for those benefits if you “are injured or become ill as a direct result of your job,” as the New York Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) puts it.

If you are unsure about whether or not you qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, Shulman & Hill is here to answer your questions. We can:

  • Listen to the details of your case
  • Find evidence that could prove you qualify for benefits
  • File the paperwork associated with your workers’ compensation claim

Our New York workers’ compensation lawyer can provide guidance throughout your case and help you defend your rights to medical coverage and lost wages.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit After Sustaining a Work Injury

If someone else’s reckless or careless conduct caused your injury, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit against them. A New York personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you:

  • Investigate and collect evidence related to your case
  • Contact all relevant parties, including the at-fault party, about your lawsuit
  • Determine the damages you suffered because of your work injury

In addition, a lawsuit could entitle you to recover damages that provide compensation for your:

Pain and Suffering

Whether you sustained an injury or contracted a work-related illness, your condition may have caused you considerable physical pain. With a significantly serious injury, you can expect to experience disruptive or upsetting symptoms in the future.

One of our New York work injury lawyers can help you file a lawsuit for past and future pain and suffering.

Medical Expenses

Depending on what type of injury you suffered and how serious it is, you could require hospitalization, surgery, therapy, home care, and prescription medications. These treatments are costly.

If someone else caused your injury, you should not have to bear the burden of paying for those treatments. You could receive reimbursement for past and future medical expenses through a lawsuit.

Lost Income

Workers’ compensation benefits typically only allow you to recover partial reimbursement for your usual income. A personal injury lawsuit could compensate you for the income you have already lost, as well as any income you expect to lose in the future due to:

  • Having to leave your current job because of the severity of your injuries
  • Being unable to ever work full-time again
  • Future medical treatments that could force you to take more time off work

We Handle Work Injury Cases of All Kinds

At Shulman & Hill, we have experience handling both workers’ compensation claims and personal injury lawsuits. This means you:

  • Only have to hire one firm to help you with both types of cases
  • Can always come to us with questions about any aspect of your case
  • Can rely on us to fight for the compensation you need while you focus on recovering from your injuries

Our team understands that you have been through a lot. You deserve extra time to process the accident and recover from your injury. Hiring our team to manage your entire work injury case gives you that time.

After an Injury, Talk to Us First

The other parties involved in your case—your employer, your insurer, and the at-fault party—could all have reasons to try to undermine and undervalue your injuries. They may use various methods to do this.

Rather than risk your compensation by talking directly to these parties, you can contact Shulman & Hill for a free case evaluation. We can advise you about the ways to deal with these parties—and we can provide a professional buffer between you and them.

How Work Injuries Happen in New York

New York-based private sector employees suffered well over 100,000 workplace illnesses and injuries in 2020, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Such injuries can occur due to:

There are numerous workplace regulations in place at both the state and federal levels to protect workers like you. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), for instance, has regulations pertaining to all kinds of industries.

If your injury involved a broken regulation, we can find out and use that information to help prove your case against the at-fault party. The entity you sue could be anyone who had a responsibility to keep workers safe.

We can gather evidence to determine liability. Such evidence may include surveillance footage from your workplace, witness statements, or your medical records.

Types of Work Injury Cases We Handle

At Shulman & Hill, we have a lot of experience defending the rights of workers. We often represent union members who need extra support for their case.

Our firm sees many cases resulting from construction accidents, such as:

However, we also work with people who were injured in manufacturing sector accidents, as well as:

If your loved one was involved in a fatal workplace accident, we understand that no amount of money can bring them back. However, the money that you are owed as a result of the accident can cover some of the associated costs, helping you avoid unnecessary financial stress during an already difficult moment.
