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

What is the Personal Injury Claims Process?
The personal injury claims process begins when an injury victim submits a claim to an insurance company. Typically, they will file this claim against the insurer for the party who caused the accident. The insurance company will assign an adjuster to investigate the claim. If the adjuster determines the insurance company is liable for the accident, it will offer a settlement to cover the victim’s damages. However, these settlement offers don’t always fully account for the victim’s losses. If they determine the insurer is not liable, they will deny the claim.
What is a Personal Injury Case?
A personal injury case is a legal action that arises from an accident or injury. Typically, these cases are based on negligence. An injury claim provides a way for the victim to recover compensation for losses they’ve experienced due to the incident. Personal injury cases typically arise from motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and other injury-causing events.
What Damages Are Available to Accident Victims?
Accident victims are entitled to damages for all losses sustained in an accident. These damages come in two broad forms. Economic damages compensate victims for direct financial losses related to the accident. These include medical expenses, lost income, diminished earning capacity, and more. Non-economic damages cover non-financial losses that don’t have a clear financial value. Examples include pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, reduced quality of life, and loss of consortium.
What Questions Should I Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer?
When searching for a personal injury lawyer, you should ask questions about their experience, services and results.  You only have one chance to recover and finding the right lawyer can make a big difference in the final outcome of your case, the level of services that you receive, and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.   Want more information? Read our full article here.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
Personal injury lawyers help victims recover compensation for injuries and damages that someone else’s negligence caused. They do this by helping clients with insurance claims and/or civil lawsuits. Want to learn more? Read our full article here.
Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
You do not need a personal injury lawyer, but one can benefit you in many ways following an accident resulting in serious physical harm. Severe injuries can lead to expensive medical care, extended absences from work, pain and suffering, and other damages. Read our full article to find out more about when it's right to hire a personal injury lawyer.

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.
