Explore Your Options Following a Workplace Accident

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there were 74 job-related fatalities in New York City in 2015, a slight decline from the previous year. Many more people are severely, often permanently injured in accidents at work, creating a burden for victims and their families.

While workers’ compensation provides some benefits those injured at work, it is not intended to compensate an accident victim for damages caused by pain and suffering, lost union benefits, as well as other damages. Fortunately, it is often not the only option to consider. If a third party (someone other than your employer) caused or contributed to an injury on the job, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim against that party to recover additional compensation for your injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

How Much Can I obtain from a Car Accident Settlement?
Several factors influence the amount you might obtain from a car accident settlement. The seriousness of your injury plays a significant role in determining this amount, as it affects your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and many other types of damages. The amount of insurance coverage available plays another significant part in the outcome of your settlement. Of course, a lawyer’s experience building personal injury cases, handling insurance companies, and negotiating fair settlements is yet another important consideration in this equation. Want to learn more about car accident settlements? Read our full article here.
Why do I need a car accident lawyer; can’t I just call the insurance company myself and try to get a settlement?
Insurance companies have skilled attorneys working to protect them as well as adjusters whose job it is to resolve claims for as little money as possible. Car accident victims representing themselves will usually be at a significant disadvantage. You should have skilled personal injury attorneys at your side, like those at Oresky & Associates, fighting for your rights, with a proven track record of obtaining over $300 Million Dollars in verdicts and settlements for New York accident victims. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced New York car accident attorney.
What should I do after a car accident?
After a car accident, you should always call for help. While you wait for help to arrive, check for injuries—both your own and those of others involved in the collision. Be sure to accept necessary medical attention from any paramedics on the scene and follow up with a health care provider as soon as possible in the days following the accident. Last but not least, connect with a lawyer––and do it fast. Get more information on what to do after an auto accident by reading our full post.
What is a deposition?
A deposition or EBT (examination before trial) is an opportunity for the defendants’ lawyers to ask you questions under oath about how your accident occurred. Depositions are normally conducted in an attorney’s office or the office of the court reporter who is transcribing your testimony. All parties are usually deposed.
Should I get a lawyer for a car accident?
You can argue that the best time to hire a car accident lawyer is shortly after your accident happens. By hiring a car accident lawyer from our firm, you:
  • Protect yourself from insurance companies
  • Have a buffer between you and the parties who caused your accident
  • Reduce the risk of your rights being violated
The insurance company may try to get you to accept a low settlement offer. These offers come quickly but generally do not cover your long-term losses. A lawyer from our team will shield you from lowball settlement offers by fighting for the full scope of your damages. You can learn more by reading our full blog post here.
How do I find a lawyer for a car accident?
Finding a lawyer to represent you in your car accident case requires research—there simply is no way around it. Begin your homework by searching online for car accident lawyers in your area (New York City, Bronx, or Queens, for example). As you review their websites, check for the following characteristics: 
  • Experience in personal injury law—and with car accidents, specifically
  • Results—financial value of settlements and awards
  • Positive testimonials that speak to you

What are the chances of recovery from a spinal cord injury?
Spinal cord injuries are one of the most devastating injuries you can suffer. While there is no way to reverse the damage completely, immediate treatment and medical advances can sometimes make a significant difference in the outcome.
Can I bring a car accident lawsuit if I am undocumented?
Personal injury lawsuits can be brought without regard to your immigration status. Even if you are undocumented you have the right to sue for money damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering.

How Do Third Party Claims Work?

In a third-party claim, there may be several defendants that share fault for the accident and a worker’s resulting injuries. We can investigate your case to identify each potentially liable party.

One of the key elements of a third-party workplace accident claim or any other personal injury claim is causation. This means that the accident must have been a foreseeable result of the defendant’s negligence. Third-party claims are not always easy to navigate, so a skilled lawyer who understands how to investigate these cases may make a big difference to your ability to get compensation.

Damages After A Workplace Accident

Damages extend beyond what is available through the workers’ compensation system, including non-economic losses like pain and suffering. Damages also may account for the full extent of a worker’s lost wages and earning capacity, rather than offering just a partial wage replacement. Serving people in Queens, the Bronx, and beyond, our workplace accident attorneys have handled a variety of cases, including accidents involving:

  • Construction workers;
  • Plumbers
  • Electricians;
  • Carpenters;
  • Demolition workers;
  • Delivery personnel;
  • Drivers;
  • Asbestos handlers;
  • Painters and
  • HVAC Installers.

Third-party liability arises when someone other than your employer or co-worker acts carelessly, leading to an injury on the job. These types of accidents frequently happen at construction sites.
