New York City: Legal Help After a Work Accident
After an injury accident at work, you may find that the workers’ compensation system provides you with efficient access to the financial assistance you need. However, in some workplaces — and with some types of workplace accidents — independent legal representation may be necessary to make sure that you get a full and fair financial recovery.
Sometimes Workers’ Compensation Is Not Enough
There are several situations in which you should consider seeking independent legal advice about your rights to compensation after a workplace accident.
- Was the accident caused in part by faulty machinery?
- Was the accident caused in part by the actions of someone not associated with your job?
- Did the accident occur on a construction site?
- Did the accident occur as a result of faulty scaffolding or ladders?
In all of the above situations, the law may allow an injured worker to seek recovery of financial losses outside the workers’ compensation system. This may be very good news for some injured workers, especially those who have suffered serious injuries with long-lasting effects. Workers’ compensation rarely provides for a complete financial recovery. Without the option of pursuing additional compensation in an independent personal injury lawsuit, many employees would never see fair and just compensation for their injuries.
