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 Do I Make an Accident Report from a Construction Accident?
If you suffered injuries in a construction accident, you must report the accident to your foreman or employer, but there are other steps you also must take if you hope to receive compensation for your injury. First things first! If you have been hurt, seek medical care and attention immediately. If you need an ambulance, ask for one to be called. Your construction foreman may or may not be aware of your accident. Do not assume they received word of the incident. Even if you verbally told your co-worker about it, this notification will not always help you if your employer does not have actual knowledge of your construction accident. Want to learn more about how to make an accident report? Read our full article here.
Will my car accident case go to trial?
Most car accident cases settle before trial, however, you must be prepared to go all the way to jury verdict. If the defense counsel or the insurance adjuster senses that you are not ready to go the distance, they will try and settle for less than full value. Make sure your case is prepared to go all the way.
What is the Average Settlement for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?
Since medical malpractice covers such a wide variety of injuries and scenarios, there is no average settlement amount for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Furthermore, many individual factors can affect a settlement’s amount, such as the injury’s permanence and impact on your job and whether your case settles out of court. When thinking about your malpractice case, remember that it is a  personal injury with losses. Malpractice is then subcategorized into different types, each with its own area.  To learn more, please read our full article 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 happens if I am partially at fault for my car accident?
As long as you are not 100 percent at fault for your car accident you can still recover money damages for your injuries from the other party who caused your accident. Most accidents involve some degree of comparative fault between the parties.
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.
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. 
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.

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.

We Defend Your Rights

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.
