New York Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents Lawyer

While one may be injured at any job, if you work in an industrial or manufacturing setting, you need to be particularly vigilant to avoid accidents. Even if you exercise the proper degree of caution, you may still be injured in an accident resulting from someone else’s negligence.

If you have been harmed in a New York industrial or manufacturing accident, consult with an attorney at Shulman & Hill, serving all five boroughs. Our New York City industrial and manufacturing accident lawyers will gladly review your case and discuss your options.

Common Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents in New York

New York industrial and manufacturing accidents are relatively common and can occur for many reasons. The following are some of the more common types of accidents:

Factories and similar environments are full of potential hazards that can result in injuries. Property owners and contractors must do their part to ensure workers’ wellbeing by adhering to safety procedures, equipping workers with the proper equipment, and more.

New York Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents: Potential Consequences

The types of injuries a New York industrial or manufacturing accident may leave you with include:

  • Back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Amputation
  • Traumatic brain injury

Potential consequences you may face in the aftermath of such an accident include medical bills, lost wages if your injuries prevent you from returning to work, limited mobility, and cognitive problems.

Injured New York workers can usually seek compensation for such losses by filing a workers’ compensation claim. This is not as simple as one might assume though, as claims can be denied or undervalued. Your chances of securing what you may be entitled to are much greater if you coordinate with a New York workers’ compensation lawyer.

How an Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents Law Firm Helps

Hiring an industrial and manufacturing accident lawyer to represent you when seeking compensation can be beneficial for many reasons. Some of the critical ways an attorney can help in these circumstances are:

Proving You Have a Valid Claim

New York law typically allows injured workers to address their losses via workers’ compensation, with some exceptions.

There is a possibility an insurer may try to claim you are not entitled to compensation. You can benefit from the help of a workers’ compensation lawyer in New York to guard against such claims.

To qualify for workers’ compensation, you have to prove that your injury or illness is work-related. Your claim may not be approved if an insurer argues that your injury does not meet the proper criteria. The odds of your claim being approved in a timely manner are much greater if you hire an industrial and manufacturing accident lawyer.


Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to compensation for a range of losses after a New York industrial or manufacturing accident, including current and future medical bills, as well as wages lost due to your inability to work.

However, insurance companies are businesses. Like any business, an insurer may not pay you the full amount of compensation to which you are likely entitled without requiring some negotiating. They may even provide arguments to convince you to accept a low offer.

This is among the most critical benefits of working with an industrial and manufacturing accident law firm in New York. A qualified lawyer will have the training, expertise, and resources necessary to negotiate on your behalf. They can collect evidence to demonstrate why you are genuinely entitled to the full amount of compensation you are requesting.


Suppose an insurer raises questions about the validity of your claim. In that case, it may be necessary to conduct a thorough investigation into your accident to demonstrate that your claim is valid. Most individuals do not have access to the resources needed to conduct such an investigation. This is yet another reason you should meet with an attorney as soon as possible after your accident.

Our investigation may involve interviewing witnesses, reviewing surveillance camera footage or pictures, examining the scene of your accident, coordinating with medical and manufacturing experts, and more.

If you suspect that a property owner or contractor’s negligence may have contributed to your accident, an investigation can also help prove their fault. This evidence will help you pursue additional compensation from the negligent third party alongside your workers’ compensation benefits.

Handling All Key Tasks

Pursuing the compensation you are likely entitled to can be a lengthy process involving a range of administrative tasks. After suffering an injury, your primary focus should be your recovery. You do not need to burden yourself with these additional tasks and responsibilities.

Let our workers’ compensation and personal injury law firm handle this stress for you. We will tackle all administrative tasks, investigations, correspondence with the insurance company and other relevant parties, and more, giving you the time to recover from your accident.
