Common Types of Workers’ Compensation Injuries 

A workplace injury can happen in nearly any job. However, certain industries are more dangerous than other job sites. For example, working in the construction industry comes with significant risks. Construction workers are more likely to fall from heights, get caught between heavy equipment, get stuck between objects, or be electrocuted on the job. Similarly, commercial drivers are also at a higher risk of injury. Delivery truck drivers, taxi drivers, and semi-truck drivers can be injured in dangerous car accidents. Manufacturing workers in factories who are around forklifts and heavy machinery are at risk of injury, as well. Common workers’ compensation injuries include the following:

  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Bruises
  • Burns
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Crushing injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Cancer due to asbestos exposure
  • Brain injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • And more

Who is Covered Under New York City’s Workers’ Compensation Laws? 

Not everybody is covered under New York’s workers’ compensation laws. Instead, you will only be covered if your injury falls into one of the following categories:

  • Your employer has workers compensation insurance coverage 
  • Your injury, illness, or disability is directly connected with your job and occurred while you were performing the duties associated with your job
  • You gave your employer written notice of your injury within 30 days

How to Obtain Workers’ Compensation in New York

If you have been injured on the job in New York, you will need to obtain medical care. You can obtain care at a primary care provider, an occupational medicine clinic, or a hospital or urgent care center. Next, you’ll need to notify your supervisor or manager about the workplace accident. Your employer has a duty to report your illness or injury to New York’s Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) and their workers’ compensation insurance carrier. Your employer must report the injury or accident within two years. 

How Much Will You Receive in a Workers’ Compensation Settlement? 

When we work with injured employees, we will carefully formulate the amount of compensation they deserve. Before we reach a settlement agreement, we will calculate the compensation amount, which should include:

  • Your medical treatment costs
  • Future medical treatment expenses, such as surgery
  • Lost past and future wages
  • Disability payments, when applicable

Every workers’ compensation claim is unique. We will carefully analyze the facts in your case and gather evidence related to the severity of your injury or illness. When we negotiate with workers’ compensation insurance adjusters, we meticulously prepare. We do not allow insurance adjusters to pressure our clients into accepting a settlement that is too low. We research and prepare every workers’ compensation case as if we are going to go to trial. When the insurance company refuses to provide a favorable settlement option, we will take them to court.

Appealing a Workers’ Compensation Denial 

What happens when a workers’ compensation claim does not go smoothly? Either side has a right to appeal the decision; the appeal must be done in writing and submitted within 30 days of the decision. Three board members will review the case. They can agree to uphold the decision, reject it, or change part of the decision. They also have the option to return the case to more hearings. 

Once they make a decision, either party can appeal to the Workers’ Compensation Board of Commissioners and New York State’s Supreme Court, Appellate Division. You must appeal the decision within 30 days, so it is essential that you speak with a workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions about Workers Compensation Claims in New York

When Should I Hire a Workers Compensation Lawyer?

Sometimes people assume that they can complete a worker’s compensation claim on their own in New York. It is possible to file a claim on your own, but you will increase your chances of success by working with a lawyer. Workers’ compensation laws are incredibly complicated, and it can be difficult to obtain compensation. We have seen cases in which employers flat-out deny workers’ compensation benefits or fail to process their employee’s claim.

Your lawyer will help you understand your legal rights and hold your employer and their insurance company accountable, so you can obtain the compensation you deserve. Additionally, if your claim is denied, your lawyer can submit an appeal. Employers’ insurance companies are often more willing to work quickly to process the claim when a lawyer is representing the employee.

If you have been hurt on the job and want to make a workers’ compensation claim, it is important to consult with a New York workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible. An experienced attorney can help you understand your options and provide you with the best strategy to recover compensation. They will guide you through the process and fight to help you recover reasonable compensation for your injuries and other damages.

How can I Afford a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?

Most workers’ compensation lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that they are only paid when you recover compensation or are awarded a settlement. The fee is a percentage of the damages awarded to you. You therefore will not have to pay your attorney out of your pocket. You will also not have to pay the attorney if you fail to recover compensation. Be sure to discuss the terms of payment with your workers’ compensation lawyer before you hire them.

What is Personal Injury?

If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, you may be entitled to compensation due to the damages you’ve experienced — either directly through the responsible party or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will focus on tort law while seeking economic and non-economic damages for their clients — whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.

Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil, and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment of life, and even depression.

It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our attorneys and staff are competent, compassionate, and committed to seeking the maximum fair and appropriate compensation for all of our clients. We fight to win, not to quickly settle and move on to the next case. Our firm will make sure that you are properly advised of all of your options while giving you the proper legal advice to make the right decision for yourself and your family.

Types of Personal Injury

Personal injuries can refer to injuries sustained due to dental malpractice, product liability, or assault claims, but they more commonly involve the following types of injuries:

Car Accidents

When your vehicle collides with another vehicle, a pedestrian, an animal, debris, or another stationary obstruction such as a tree, pole, or building, you may face significant injuries and expenses that often include medical treatment and vehicle repairs. Following a car accident that was no fault of your own, it is important to immediately begin working with a New York personal injury lawyer to seek fair and appropriate compensation.

Truck Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents involving a truck or tractor-trailer and caused by the recklessness of others will present additional complex factors that are not present in a regular car accident case. You can be certain that there will be attorneys representing the truck driver, which is why you should partner with a New York personal injury lawyer at our law office immediately.

Motorcycle Accidents

When your motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident at no fault of your own, you will need help in your fight to be fairly compensated in your case. As a client of our law firm, you can be confident that we are bringing the fight to the insurance company.

Premises Liability

An injury from an accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property often involves a fall on a slippery or uneven surface. Other types of negligence or dangerous circumstances may also lead to an injury or death. In some cases, your accident could amount to a multi-million dollar settlement. Our law office of NY accident attorneys will be happy to guide you through this process as our client.

Dog Bite

Dog owners are generally determined to be liable if their dog hurts you or anyone else. New York personal injury law in this situation provides a means to seek compensation for your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, & much more.

Slip and Fall

A property owner could be liable for damages if you slip, trip, and fall on their property due to their negligence. Working with a qualified New York personal injury lawyer in this situation is important because the Queens, Nassau County, Suffolk County, or Long Island property owner that you file a claim against will certainly be represented by law firms who are trying to dismiss or settle your case for as little as possible.

Construction Accidents

An injury sustained due to working on a construction site can be life-changing or deadly. In many cases, such an injury will prevent your ability to continue working for some duration of time. Workers’ compensation is available for these types of accidents. Depending on the details of your case, you may also be able to file a lawsuit.

Wrongful Death

Death caused by negligence or intentional actions of another party is known as wrongful death. The NY accident attorneys at our law office are experienced in these cases and are ready to help you fight for the money you need.

Medical Malpractice

When you work with a licensed medical professional, you have every right to expect that they will take prudent and cautious steps to help you work towards a successful recovery. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The New York personal injury attorneys at our law firm are ready to help you fight for fair compensation.
