Getting Fair Compensation for a Work Injury in Staten Island

Personal injuries can be very serious or even life-altering. As an injured worker, you have three possible ways to recover compensation. These are:

  • Suing the party that caused your injury
  • Filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits
  • Suing the responsible party and filing a workers’ compensation claim

Our attorneys can investigate your case and tell you more about your options.

How to File a Third-Party Work Injury Lawsuit

You could receive compensation through a lawsuit if you can prove that you were injured because of another party’s carelessness. That may be a company, a contractor, or another party. The work injury lawyers on our Staten Island team can help you prove the at-fault party’s negligence and establish your case’s worth.

Shulman & Hill can take all the necessary legal action on your behalf, including:

  • Quantifying your injuries and fighting for the amount you deserve
  • Preparing and filing all paperwork
  • Exchanging emails, phone calls, and other communications with other parties

How to File for Workers’ Compensation

If you plan on filing a workers’ compensation claim, you must report the injury to your employer. Generally, you must also file the necessary paperwork within the established deadlines. You can get more specific instructions from the New York Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB).

If you already filed for compensation or are still considering your options, our workers’ compensation lawyers can help. Shulman & Hill could:

  • Review both your accident and any actions you took afterward
  • Gather evidence from as many sources as possible
  • Report your accident and submit your claim, if you have not done so
  • Speak to your employer, their insurer, and any other involved parties on your behalf
  • Work to smooth out any disagreements regarding your case
  • Explain if you can file for workers’ compensation benefits and bring a third-party lawsuit

When Can I Get Both Types of Compensation?

Whether you end up pursuing a lawsuit, a workers’ comp claim, or both depends on your specific situation. Our work injury lawyers in Staten Island can work with you to determine the best course of action based on:

  • Your needs and goals
  • The facts of your case
  • The available evidence
  • Any state or federal laws that apply to your case

Shulman & Hill has the legal resources to handle both personal injury lawsuits and workers’ compensation claims. If you come to us first, you do not have to worry about possibly hiring a second firm down the line to manage both aspects of your case. We can do it all.
