On-Site Work Accident Attorneys in New York
You can sustain an injury at work whether you’re in an office or at a construction site. Regardless, you are entitled to workers’ compensation should you suffer physical or emotional harm while working.
Compensation can come in the form of money, healthcare, and/or survivor benefits. Companies aren’t always willing to fork over the compensation you’re entitled to, which is where you’d need a lawyer to step in. Only an experienced lawyer can help you get everything you’re entitled to.
How To Know If You Are Entitled To
Some people miss out on workers’ compensation benefits simply because they don’t know they qualify. On top of suffering an injury at your place of work, there are other situations where you can qualify for compensation as well. These situations include, but are not limited to:
- An incident occurred while you’re traveling for work or attending a company-sponsored event
- You aggravated a pre-existing condition while working
- Another worker’s or manager’s misconduct or negligence caused an injury
- You performed a hazardous task at work
Entitlement to workers’ compensation can arise in ways you were never aware of before — you can even receive benefits if you’re totally or partially responsible for the incident. If you’re not sure whether you qualify or not, reach out to Pulvers, Pulvers & Thompson, L.L.P. for a consultation.
Should You File a Workers’ Compensation or
Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Injured employees tend to seek compensation through their employer’s insurance policy for workers’ compensation. If you decide to go this route, you will forfeit your opportunity to sue your employer for personal injury.
However, if a third party is at fault for your injury, you can file a personal injury suit against them and a workers’ compensation suit against your employer. You can file a third party lawsuit under the following circumstances while working:
- A defective product caused your injury
- A toxic substance caused your injury
- A third party employee caused your injury
- Your employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance
