Compensation After A Work-Related Injury
Workplace accidents are stressful. On top of the pain and medical care, injured workers often worry about how they will make ends meet while they are unable to work. Fortunately, injured workers can often obtain compensation for their lost wages through workers’ compensation or a personal injury claim.
At The Orlow Firm, our New York City personal injury lawyers have extensive experience helping injured workers obtain the compensation they need to recover from serious workplace accidents. We can help all types of injured workers collect lost wages when they have to miss a significant period away from work. When you come to our firm, you will speak directly with a partner at our firm. We think you should expect nothing less.
Accidents Happen To All Types Of Workers
Construction workers may be especially likely to miss work due to accidents. Their jobs are physically challenging even when they are healthy. An injury can easily result in missed time from a construction job. If you have missed work because of a serious construction injury, our law firm may be able to help you obtain compensation for your losses through a construction accident lawsuit.
Although construction sites are particularly dangerous, any worker can become involved in a workplace accident. Sales workers and others who drive for a living may be in motor vehicle accidents. Office workers may sustain back injuries or slip and fall on poorly maintained floors or stairs. Regardless of what kind of job a worker has, he or she may have legal options for lost wages due to job-related accidents.
How The Orlow Firm Can Help
At The Orlow Firm, our law firm can refer you to a qualified workers’ compensation firm if you have lost time at work due to a job-related injury. Through workers’ compensation, you can receive at least partial wage replacement.
We will also investigate your accident for potential third-party claims. Third-party claims may be filed against negligent parties other than your employer, and you can often obtain more money damages than from workers’ compensation alone. Our team will work to show the value of the time you have missed at work as well as time that you may have to miss in the future due to your injuries.
