If you or someone you know has been injured in the workplace, whether the result of negligence or accident, you may be entitled to the payment of your medical bills. You could even receive a portion of lost wages as a result of the accident. It is required by law for your employer to have Workers’ Compensation insurance. This insurance policy is designed to pay out specific sums should any of the employees of the organization insured ever be hurt or killed either at work or possibly as a result of work. A Workers’ Compensation attorney can help make sure that you receive the full amount you are entitled to as well as work through any legal issues that may result from the accident.
These accidents on the job in Queens or Nassau County may be the result of negligence. Employers who expose their employees to asbestos or dangerous chemicals, for instance, unnecessarily may be found negligent in the workplace. Other kinds of accidents can include industrial accidents as well as construction site accidents. A variety of factors may be at work in some of these situations as they may be the result of a complicated line of actions. Whether your injury was the result of a machine malfunction or the carelessness of another employee, a Workers’ Compensation lawyer can help ensure that you receive the reward you are entitled to. They can help walk you through the legal processes during and after the suit.
Long term disabilities like carpal tunnel syndrome may also be considered for Workers’ Compensation reimbursement. If an accident or long term result of exposure to unfavorable conditions affects the victims wages and future income, this can be settled with the employer's insurance policy. If your family member or friend has died at work, they or their family are still entitled to compensation from a death claim against their employer's insurance.
