Staten Island Work-Related Car Accidents: Important Information

While you may exercise caution while driving in or near Staten Island, you can only control the choices you make behind the wheel and cannot prevent others from making decisions that may put you in danger.

Your risk of being involved in a car accident is relatively high when driving in a crowded city such as New York. Every month, there are hundreds of auto accidents in Staten Island alone.

Causes of Staten Island Work-Related Car Accidents

The causes of Staten Island work-related car accidents may include–but are not limited to–the following:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Sleep-deprived driving (which is often as dangerous as drunk driving)
  • Distracted driving (an increasingly common factor in accidents due to the growing popularity of smartphones)
  • Vehicle defects
  • Improper vehicle maintenance
  • Aggressive driving
  • Hazardous road conditions

There is a chance a work-related car accident on Staten Island can leave you with injuries that may prevent you from returning to work until you have fully recovered. In some severe cases, your injuries may prevent you from working ever again. Regardless of the time period, if you cannot earn a paycheck, you will likely find it difficult to pay for your treatment, especially if your injury requires long-term treatment, hospitalization, and/or surgery.

Learn about the process of pursuing compensation after a Staten Island work-related car accident by scheduling a consultation with our experienced workers’ compensation law firm.

How Our Work-Related Car Accidents Law Firm in Staten Island Can Help

In New York, most employers have workers’ compensation insurance. This allows injured workers to seek compensation for their losses, including their medical bills and loss of earnings.

This does not mean workers’ compensation insurance always functions as intended. For a worker to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, they must prove that:

  • They sustained injuries and/or losses as a result of a work-related accident
  • They did not intentionally cause an accident to receive a payout

Some insurers try to avoid paying claimants if they can and may look for reasons to deny your claim altogether. If you cannot prove that your car accident was genuinely work-related, you may struggle to convince an insurer that you qualify for benefits.

This is why consulting with a Staten Island work-related car accident lawyer can be extremely beneficial. Shulman & Hill can help by:

Gathering Evidence

You will have a higher chance of recovering the compensation you may be entitled to with our Staten Island lawyers by your side. We can conduct an investigation to gather evidence that will prove that your accident and injuries qualify for workers’ compensation benefits and that your claim should be accepted.

Our work-related car accident attorneys can conduct a thorough investigation into the accident to gather all the evidence necessary, including accident reports, medical records, and other relevant documentation.

Handling the Claims Process

When you have been injured in a work-related car accident on Staten Island, your goal is to get better as quickly and comfortably as possible. Taking on any additional responsibilities can be difficult.

This is another reason to enlist the help of an experienced workers’ compensation law firm. From filing paperwork to corresponding with insurance adjusters, we can handle all the tasks involved in pursuing compensation on your behalf, allowing you to focus on your health.

Fighting a Denied Workers’ Compensation Claim

If your claim was wrongly denied by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer, we can build a case on your behalf that shows how and when you were injured and why it qualifies you for benefits.

If an insurer continues to deny your claim, our Staten Island workers’ compensation lawyers can present your case to a workers’ compensation judge. This judge will review your case and determine whether or not you qualify for benefits.
