Bronx Utility Worker Injuries Lawyer

In a dense urban environment like the Bronx, utility workers play a critical role in everyone’s life. Those who work in maintaining our power lines are often at a greater-than-average risk of being injured in on-the-job accidents. Accidents can occur even when employees exercise caution.

New York utility workers are typically entitled to compensation for their medical bills if they are ever injured in a work-related accident. If you or a loved one has been injured in such an accident, meet with a lawyer in the Bronx to learn more about your options. At Shulman & Hill, a qualified utility worker injury attorney can help you build a strong case and pursue a fair settlement.

Types of Bronx Utility Worker Injuries

The types of injuries one may sustain in an on-the-job accident can vary depending on a range of factors. Common Bronx utility worker injuries include–but are not necessarily limited to–the following:

  • Broken bones
  • Head trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burns
  • Neck, shoulder, and knee injuries
  • Disfigurement

Many of these injuries can have a long-term impact on your quality of life. Head trauma can result in cognitive difficulties and a spinal cord injury may leave you permanently paralyzed. It is not uncommon for New York’s utility workers to lose their lives when accidents occur. The importance of adhering to all safety guidelines at work cannot be overstated.

Cases of Bronx Utility Worker Injuries

There are numerous potential causes of utility worker accidents, such as failure to properly train employees, provide them with adequate safety equipment, or communicate safety guidelines in a clear way, as well as defective or poorly-maintained equipment.

Regardless of the specific cause of your accident, there is a strong chance you could sustain injuries that call for costly treatment. Immediate medical attention is required in most cases and is suggested even if you are not experiencing severe pain. An injury can go unnoticed and create a more serious issue later on if it is not treated early enough. Seeing a doctor can also be beneficial for your future claim since you will have established a paper trail relating to your injury.

You may also require long-term medical care, hospitalization, or surgery. This can prevent you from working temporarily until you recover, but in some cases permanently. The inability to earn a paycheck can exacerbate an already stressful financial situation.

You are most likely able to seek compensation for these losses by filing a workers’ compensation claim. Filing a claim does not necessarily guarantee a quick payout, as the process of recovering damages can be quite complex. You are more likely to reach an appropriate settlement in a timely manner if you seek representation from the experts at our law firm in the Bronx.

How Our Utility Worker Injury Law Firm in the Bronx Can Help You

A utility worker injury lawyer can be your best resource of legal advice and guide you through the claims process. Some of the ways an attorney can help include the following.

Investigating the Case

Insurance companies are businesses first and foremost, and they may not be incentivized to compensate injured victims fairly. It is not uncommon for workers’ compensation insurers to review claims with the intention of finding reasons to deny them altogether. The following are common ways insurers argue claimants are not entitled to workers’ compensation benefits:

  • The accident in question was not genuinely work-related
  • An employee intentionally caused the accident attempting to secure a payout

A skilled legal expert can look into your case to prove you were not at fault, and the injury truly happened at your place of work. Our team of Bronx utility worker injury lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation and gather all evidence necessary you need to prove you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

Pursuing Fair Compensation

The workers’ compensation claim process can be complex to go through without prior experience or legal background. Your injuries may require ongoing treatment or future hospitalization and determining what you are eligible for can be complicated.

At Shulman & Hill, our legal professionals can help with this process. Our attorneys have the training and expertise necessary to review the severity and extent of your losses in order to secure fair compensation on your behalf.

Negotiating

You do not have to work with an insurance company directly when you file a claim. An insurer may use your lack of experience and offer a lower settlement than what you are seeking. A Bronx utility worker injury attorney can negotiate on your behalf. After our team determines the compensation that is fair in your case, we can negotiate with the insurance company. This will give you more time and freedom to focus on your health.

Handling Administrative Tasks

The claims process can involve tasks like filing paperwork, corresponding with insurance adjusters, and gathering physical evidence such as medical bills. You should not feel the need to handle these tasks yourself. After being injured in a Bronx utility accident, your focus should be on your recovery.
