Helping Injured Workers Get Compensated

Injured workers in New York and beyond have rights. A work injury can - and often does - significantly impede your life. You may be forced to miss weeks, months, maybe even years from your job, unable to earn wages. You may be saddled with serious medical and rehabilitation bills. The toll is not only physical. It is often emotional and financial and can impact your entire family.

The attorneys at Shulman & Hill, based in downtown Brooklyn but representing clients throughout New York City, work with those hurt on the job to secure the benefits and compensation necessary for a smoother recovery process.

Common Workplace Injuries

There are countless ways to be injured in the workplace, whether you are in an office, in a manufacturing plant or on a construction site. At Shulman & Hill, we help victims with a variety of injuries file claims for compensation. Here are some examples of common work-related injuries in a variety of work environments.

Musculoskeletal Injuries

Musculoskeletal injuries are the most common occupational injuries affecting tendons, muscles and joints and are caused by a variety of reasons, including:

  • Repetitive motion
  • Overexertion and heavy lifting
  • Prolonged static posture
  • Frequent or repetitive stretching

This type of injury occurs in many work settings. Some examples of musculoskeletal injuries are bursitis, tendinitis, neck and shoulder pain and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Injuries From Facility Negligence

Falls also happen in many poorly maintained workplaces due to:

  • Wet or slippery surfaces
  • Objects on the floor
  • Loose carpeting
  • Inadequate lighting

Injuries from falls include such things as broken bones, knee dislocation and concussions.

Construction And Machinery Injuries

Injuries from malfunctioning machinery, failed equipment and motor vehicle accidents happen in the construction field as well as other production environments. At times, improper training and inadequate employer safety standards are the reasons that employees are injured and suffer.

Construction-related injuries may include:

  • Cement burns and chemical exposure
  • Long-term illnesses, such as mesothelioma
  • Broken bones and traumatic brain injuries
  • Eye injuries and amputations

These may cause life-limiting illness, reduce vision and hearing, require surgery and limit future earning potential. Our law firm is dedicated to zealously defending your right to workers' compensation benefits.
