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. We know that it's imperative that you exercise your rights as a worker. That's why we stand by your side and are willing to take your case as far as necessary so that you receive the maximum possible compensation.

We Stand Up For Workers Around New York City

The workers' compensation process isn't crystal clear. Employees often must provide tons of documentation and have to jump through hoops for their employer and insurance company. Even if everything is done seemingly correctly, your claim may still be denied.

At Shulman & Hill, we'll work with you from the start. No matter how complex or challenging your case is, we'll work with you to:

  • Help you obtain wage and medical benefits
  • Guide you through the process of obtaining supplemental benefits
  • Appeal a denied claim
  • Assist you in finding the appropriate doctor and medical team to treat your injury

We help both white-collar and blue-collar workers alike, from those in construction to those working in offices. An injury is an injury, and we know how to help you obtain the benefits necessary for your recovery.

Examining The Causes Of Serious Injuries

While most people are used to accidents as an obvious cause of work-related injuries, many are less familiar with workplace injuries and illnesses with a gradual onset. When a job-related injury builds slowly over time, it may be hard at first to pinpoint its cause. At Shulman & Hill, we defend the rights of many injured workers with gradual-onset injuries and illnesses from the workplace.

Your injury or illness may be related to something you frequently experience or are exposed to on the job such as:

  • Toxic chemicals
  • Repetitive motion
  • Inadequate training
  • Mechanical failure

If you suspect that you might have a work-related injury, take action now to get the compensation you deserve.

Jobs At Higher Risk For Gradual-Onset Work Injuries

Here are jobs where gradual-onset injuries are common:

  • Home health aide / caretaker or nurse
  • Cook / kitchen worker
  • Warehouse worker / inventory stocker
  • Construction worker
