Look Beyond Workers' Compensation
Certain industries jobs are simply more dangerous than others. Workers in these industries are at a higher risk for on-the-job injuries. Construction accidents, factory accidents and warehouse accidents, for example, are all too common. If you have been injured at work, it may be months or years until you have recovered enough to support yourself and your family. Your injuries may even permanently limit the type of work you can do.
I am Bronx workplace accident lawyer Daniel A. Kalish. I help workers in the aftermath of a devastating work injury by finding opportunities to file personal injury claims while working closely with their workers' compensation attorneys to ensure that they are treated fairly.
Workers' Comp Claims And Personal Injury Claims
In any workplace accident, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. These benefits should cover your medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages. Workers' compensation does not cover all of your losses after an accident, however. If someone other than your employer was at fault for your injuries, you have the right to file a personal injury claim against this other party. A personal injury attorney can be instrumental in helping you recover these damages.
In workplace accidents, there can be any number of potentially liable parties. For instance, perhaps a subcontractor or other company's employees caused your injuries on a job site. Maybe you were involved in a car accident that was not your fault while on the job. Maybe you were injured by defective machinery. Under New York law, workers on scaffolds and those working from other heights are entitled to special legal protections as well. Whatever the cause, I will focus my efforts on helping you get your full measure of damages.
