Queens Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Whether you are an electrician or an accountant, no profession is immune to on-the-job accidents. Any workplace has potential hazards, even if safety measures are in place.

Some industries are affected more than others: construction and other physical labor-related roles tend to be more dangerous. If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident at work in the Queens area, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. Review your case with a Queens workers’ compensation attorney at Shulman & Hill to optimize your chances of collecting what you might be owed.

The process of recovering compensation after a work-related accident can be complex. For various reasons, many roadblocks may stand in the way of receiving a fair payout. Our skilled lawyers have years of experience helping clients like yourself navigate those roadblocks and fighting for the compensation to which they are likely entitled.

Queens Workers’ Compensation Cases: The Basics

In New York State, most employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ compensation insurance serves to support employees who are injured on the job by allowing them to seek compensation for their medical treatment or lost wages.

You can begin the process of pursuing compensation by filing a claim with the New York Workers’ Compensation Board. However, the process can be complicated without legal assistance.

What Types of Injuries Qualify for Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation benefits cover accident-related injuries, as well as illnesses and injuries that occur over a longer period of time from repetitive movements or exposure to toxic chemicals and substances in the workplace.

Common examples of work-related accidents and injuries that may qualify for benefits include, but are not limited to:

If you are ever hurt in an accident at work or if you suspect that your illness or overuse injury is related to your job responsibilities, it is important that you seek medical attention to document any symptoms you are feeling. You should also report the accident or injury immediately to your employer.

Queens Workers’ Compensation: Why Can it Be Difficult to Collect Benefits?

Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer may respond to your claim the way many insurance companies do: by prioritizing their own financial interests. There is a chance they will try to deny the compensation that you may deserve.

You may encounter an argument that you are not entitled to compensation because your accident was not genuinely work-related. To qualify for workers’ compensation, you have to show that you were truly performing your job duties when the accident occurred. If you were injured in a car accident on your lunch break, you may not be entitled to compensation.

Working with a Queens workers’ compensation attorney from Shulman & Hill can help avoid any potential hurdles. Our attorneys will be an experienced ally with your best interests in mind.
