WORK INJURY ATTORNEY NEW YORK

Worker Injuries

Our work injury attorneys in New York understand that an on-the-job injury can happen to anyone. Although most employees are covered by workers’ compensation insurance (often referred to as workers’ comp), the payments frequently do not cover the injured workers’ actual costs. This is especially the case when the injured worker has suffered a permanently disabling injury that requires costly, long-term medical care and treatment.

Workers’ compensation was originally designed to protect workers, but in many cases, this protection can fall woefully short of covering the costs of a job-related injury. If you’ve suffered a workplace injury, you may be entitled to compensation in addition to your workers’ comp benefits. Our work injury attorneys at Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP represent workers who have suffered job-related injuries and illnesses. Talk with us to learn how we can advocate for you.

On-The-Job Workers’ Injuries

Work injuries are among the most traumatic experiences employees may encounter during their working lives. Not only do they have to deal with the physical and psychological consequences of an injury, but they also have to cope with the economic impact of such an incident. Many workers fear losing their jobs because of an injury. Whether you are a factory worker, construction worker, health care worker, union worker, office worker or undocumented worker, you face the risk of being injured on-the-job. If you are a victim of a workplace accident, our work injury attorneys can help you understand your rights.

Can Union Employees Receive Compensation For A Workplace Injury?

In the case of a workplace injury, most union workers have the same rights and protections as non-union employees. Severely injured union employees should immediately contact an experienced work injury attorney to review all the options available to them. Most union agreements govern how employees should report injuries. Union contracts typically include information about obtaining medical treatment and wage-loss benefits, as well as an outline of workers’ comp benefits available in the state. Our New York work injury attorneys understand the complex legal and medical issues related to union employee compensation and job-related injuries. We work with unions to help pursue the maximum amount of compensation for union workers’ injuries.

Can Undocumented Workers Receive Compensation For A Workplace Injury?

Even if you do not have the papers needed to work legally in New York, you still may be entitled to compensation and benefits for your on-the-job injury. If you have suffered job-related injuries and you are an undocumented worker, our work injury attorneys can help evaluate your claim and explain your legal options. Undocumented workers who are hurt on-the-job can apply for workers’ compensation and file a lawsuit for additional third-party damages when applicable. We have Spanish-speaking lawyers in our office to assist you.
