Common Types of Workplace Accidents
On-the-job accidents can take many forms. Fortunately, our workplace injury attorneys have years of experience in the field, and we’ve seen our fair share of cases. Some of the most common types of workplace accidents include, but aren’t limited to:
- Falls from scaffolds or ladders
- Electrical shock
- Falling buildings or debris
- Crane, forklift, and elevator accidents
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Nearly all employers in New York are required to have workers’ compensation insurance. This is good news for victims, as such policies go a long way to covering the costs of hospital visits and lost income. Keep in mind that when you invoke workers’ compensation, you are waiving your right to sue your employer. While you won’t be able to take the negligent party to court, you will find it easier to get the compensation you need. When you meet with one of our workplace accident lawyers, this is one of the avenues we’ll explore. If it’s right for you, our team would be happy to go into more detail concerning the ins and outs of workers’ compensation.
Get Compensated for Your Injuries
Workplace injury lawsuits often result in compensation for victims. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may be able to earn damages on your behalf. Our clients commonly receive the following types of damages:
- Medical Costs: Bills from hospitals, physical therapists, and other medical professionals rack up quickly. In many cases, victims can receive funds to go toward their care.
- Lost Income: Workplace injuries often mean a reduced capacity to work and earn wages. Compensation may be awarded to clients who can no longer work as they used to.
- Loss of Quality of Life: Personal injury at the workplace impacts all aspects of your life. In select situations, compensation might be awarded for loss of quality of life. Our team will help you determine if this route is worth pursuing.
