Long Island City Work-Related Car Accidents Lawyer

Car accidents can be life-altering events, particularly if they result in serious injuries. If the accident was work-related, it may not be clear what your options are for pursuing compensation. With nearly 10,000 car accidents every month in New York City, the odds are high that you may be involved in a car accident at some point. If you are, you want to have the best legal representation possible.

With the growing popularity of ride-sharing services, like Uber, work-related car accidents are more of a possibility now than ever before. While many jobs may not be centered around driving, you may be asked to make trips in your car to perform certain work-related tasks. If you are ever injured in an accident while performing this work, you may have grounds to file a workers’ compensation claim.

If you were injured, you should consult a Long Island City work-related car accident lawyer at Shulman & Hill to learn more. Schedule a free, no-obligation legal consultation today.

What to Do After a Long Island City Work-Related Car Accident

Car accidents can be extremely jarring. Even if you are not visibly injured, the whole experience can be traumatic, especially if you were not the one who caused the accident. When dealing with the immediate aftermath of a car accident, you should take the following steps:

  • Move to a safe area and check yourself for injuries that require immediate medical attention
  • Exchange information with the other parties involved
  • Take as many photos as you can of the accident (include photos of any injuries, property damage, road conditions, and any other pertinent information)
  • Call the police and provide a report of what happened to the officer who arrives on the scene
  • Visit a medical professional for a full exam after the accident. Some injuries from the car accident may not immediately be noticeable, so be sure to visit a doctor even if you do not notice immediate symptoms
  • Consult with a Long Island City work-related car accident attorney to ensure your rights to compensation are protected
  • Keep records of all expenses incurred by the accident, including medical bills

If your car accident was work-related, you may be able to file for workers’ compensation. This can help cover your medical expenses and loss of earnings while you are unable to work. Filing for workers’ compensation benefits can often be a complex and lengthy process which is why it is recommended that you seek legal representation. The legal experts at Shulman & Hill will be able to help you navigate the process of filing a claim.

Workers’ Compensation for Work-Related Car Accidents in Long Island City

Most employers in New York are required to have some form of workers’ compensation insurance to help compensate employees who are injured on the job. This does not mean that filing a workers’ compensation claim is straightforward. Insurance companies may try to look for reasons to deny your claim.

Our Long Island City workers’ compensation lawyers can review the details of your accident to help determine if you may have a valid claim. Car accidents that occur when you are on your lunch break or other periods throughout the workday when you are not considered on the clock may not qualify as a work-related accident.

Your claim will only be accepted if the car accident occurred when you were on the job and performing job-related tasks. Having a skilled attorney on your side will help you prove the validity of your claim to the insurance company. Our Long Island City work-related car accident lawyers can provide evidence that shows when your accident occurred, how your injuries were a direct result of the accident, and why it qualifies you for workers’ compensation benefits.

Common Work-Related Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents can cause serious and sometimes chronic injuries to those involved.

Some potential work-related car accident injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Ligament damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Paralysis
  • Back injuries
  • Burns
  • Loss of limbs
  • Chronic pain

Any one of these injuries can result in costly medical treatment and prevent you from performing your job. Workers’ compensation can provide weekly payments to help cover your medical expenses and loss of earnings while you are unable to work.

If another party involved in the car crash caused the accident, you may be able to pursue additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. A personal injury lawsuit can result in additional money for your financial losses as well as compensation for your non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering.

It is imperative that you contact the proper legal representation to fight for you if you are in a work-related car accident. Shulman & Hill has a team of qualified workers’ compensation lawyers and personal injury attorneys. This allows us to help you pursue multiple avenues for compensation.
