Manhattan Utilities Worker Injury Lawyer

The sprawling, urban metropolis of New York City is filled with skyscrapers, subways, and other modern marvels that make it special. As busy people, we often forget that there are hardworking utility workers that help power these structures for our everyday use. While these unsung workers are often overlooked, the dangers of their jobs should never be.

If you are unfortunate enough to be injured as a utility worker, then you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. At Shulman & Hill, we are proud to serve our clients in the Manhattan area. Day after day, we work hard to ensure that they are taken care of after a utility accident, and we strive to acquire the maximum amount of compensation possible for our clients.

Types of Utility Accidents

Whether you work with electricity, water, or gas, you are likely well aware of the dangers and perils that lurk around every corner in the utility sector. There are several reasons why utility accidents can occur. Examples include:

Any of these situations can make an area unsafe. Hiring the right utility worker injury lawyer in the area can help you file a claim and get the compensation you may be entitled to after sustaining a utility accident.

Determining Fault in a Utility Accident in Manhattan

Often, it is unclear who may be responsible for a utility accident and any of the injuries sustained in the process. It is usually wise to conduct an investigation to determine any and all negligent parties in the aftermath of a utility worker accident.

At Shulman & Hill, our team of lawyers can scour utility plans, contracts, safety guidelines, and other physical proof from the scene to determine what caused the accident in the first place. We can also collect your medical records, pay stubs, and any accident reports at your job that may be useful. This way, you can focus solely on your recovery.

Our team can work diligently to determine liability and uncover the negligent parties you may want to seek compensation from. A few parties who may be held responsible for this mishap include:

  • Equipment manufacturers
  • General contractors
  • Sub-contractors
  • Property owners

If we can determine that any of these parties were responsible for your Manhattan utility injury, we can begin to build a personal injury claim on your behalf.

Injuries That Can Occur in a Manhattan Utility Accident

Just as there are different types of accidents, there are also different types of injuries that someone may face when they are in a utility accident. Injuries sustained in an accident can be severe and even fatal. A utility worker can sustain an injury when working with electricity.

While working with electrical wires, a worker can be electrocuted if a building is not up to code or proper equipment and training were not provided. A worker can also come in contact with downed power lines. When working on above-ground powerlines or tall buildings, falls from heights can also become a very real possibility as well. In addition, a worker can be injured in a motor vehicle accident on the way to a job site. Or, the physical nature of the job may result in repetitive stress injuries.

The severity and nature of these injuries can affect the amount of compensation you can realistically pursue. This is why it can be helpful to seek representation when dealing with the aftermath of a Manhattan utility worker injury.

Am I Entitled to Compensation?

Depending on the factors surrounding your case, it is possible that you can recover compensation for being injured in a utility accident. Many times these accidents can be extremely dangerous and cause significant injuries for those involved. In worst-case scenarios, workers can lose their lives. At Shulman & Hill, we work to help our clients pursue any compensation they may be entitled to after suffering injuries.

There are a few things that may factor into the types of compensation we can pursue for our clients. We can look closely at the medical bills that may come as a result of these accidents. Usually, these accidents can lead to exorbitant fees that only cause more distress for the worker. We can seek to include these costs in the compensation we pursue on your behalf.

If your loved one lost their life in a utility worker accident, we can also account for this as well. In these instances, your case may be considered a wrongful death and you could be entitled to wages that roughly approximate what your loved one would have earned throughout their life had they not passed away.
