Long Island City Utility Worker Injuries Lawyer

Utility workers play a critical role in any community or region. However, in a city with infrastructure as complex as New York’s, they are particularly valuable. Unfortunately, the important work utility workers do can also put them at risk of injury. When a utility worker has been injured on the job, they may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills and related losses.

Have you or a loved one in the Long Island City area been injured in a utility worker accident? If so, you should consider reviewing your case with a Long Island City personal injury lawyer to learn more about your options for compensation. At Shulman & Hill, our dedicated Long Island City utility worker injury lawyers can help you pursue workers’ compensation benefits and/or a personal injury lawsuit.

Types of Utility Worker Injuries in Long Island City

Long Island City’s utility workers can sustain many different types of injuries in work-related accidents. In fact, some utility worker accidents may result in death. The following are some of the more common injuries:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Neck injuries
  • Head trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries

Be aware that utility workers themselves may not be the only ones who can seek compensation after a utility worker accident. If an accident takes the life of a utility worker, their surviving loved ones may be able to seek compensation as well.

Coping With a Long Island City Utility Accident

The severity of a utility worker’s injuries will depend on the circumstances of the accident itself. However, many injured Long Island City utility workers will require some form of medical treatment.

Unfortunately, treatment can often be costly. As a result, an injured worker may not be prepared for the dent that medical bills can make in their personal finances after an accident. In some cases, their injuries may be so severe that they are unable to work and earn a paycheck. This can further exacerbate their financial stress.

If you ever find yourself in this situation, it is important to understand your rights. The experts at our Long Island City personal injury law firm can explain how you may be able to seek compensation for your losses.

How Our Utility Worker Injury Law Firm Can Help You

If you are a Long Island City utility worker and are injured at work, report the incident to your supervisor as soon as possible. You should also take pictures of the scene, your injuries, and any other relevant details relating to the accident. This can include the names and contact information of any potential witnesses as well.

Even if you do not believe you have sustained any injuries, seek immediate medical attention. In addition to identifying any injuries you may have overlooked, a doctor can provide written documentation of your visit. This can help to create a paper trail that can be helpful later on.

You should also strongly consider reviewing your case with a Long Island City utility worker injury lawyer. The following are key ways our team can help you.

Proving The Validity of Your Workers’ Compensation Claim

New Yorkers who are injured in work-related accidents can seek compensation by filing a claim to collect from their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. Most New York businesses have workers’ compensation insurance so injured employees can be compensated for their medical bills, lost wages, and related losses.

Like most companies, insurance companies are profit-driven businesses. When insurance companies receive claims for workers’ compensation benefits, they may try to deny claims to limit how much they are required to pay. They might do so by arguing that an accident that left a utility worker injured was not actually work-related. In some cases, they may even argue that an accident occurred because a utility worker purposely tried to injure themselves in hopes of a payout.

If this happens, a workers’ compensation attorney can help investigate and gather evidence showing your accident qualifies you for workers’ compensation.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Long Island City

If a company other than your employer contributed to your accident, you may be able to pursue additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Unlike with workers’ compensation, you can pursue non-economic damages, like pain and suffering, in a personal injury lawsuit.

If you tragically lost a loved one in a utility worker accident and believe a third party’s negligence helped cause it, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death lawsuit can result in compensation for funeral expenses, loss of consortium, and similar losses.

Negotiating

Our personal injury team at Shulman & Hill can review all the details of your case, including the extent of your injuries, medical expenses, loss of earning potential, and more to help secure a settlement or verdict that we believe fairly compensates you for your losses.

At Shulman & Hill, we will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and optimize your chances of recovering compensation whenever possible. If we cannot reach an adequate settlement offer, we will represent you in a trial.

Handling Administrative Tasks

After sustaining injuries in a Long Island City utility worker accident, the last thing you should do is burden yourself with the various tasks involved in pursuing compensation for your losses. Filing paperwork, coordinating with doctors, and corresponding with insurance company adjusters can be very draining during a time when you should be focusing on your recovery. Fortunately, our legal team can take on these time-consuming tasks for you.
