No matter the type of accident that took place, we know that you shouldn’t have to conquer these problems while you’re healing physically and emotionally. Learn more about how a personal injury attorney may be able to help you in your time of need.
How Can A Personal Injury Attorney Help After A Construction Site Accident?
Believe it or not, you’re entitled to at least two-thirds of your weekly salary from the New York Workers’ Compensation Board benefits—but all too many workers are denied their benefits because of missed deadlines or the absence of supporting documentation. With a personal injury lawyer, you will coast through the process of filing for your benefits, as we will be there for you every step of the way.
Depending on your accident, there could be possible money awards for extremities and permanent changes to your quality of life, whether you’re able to return to work or not, and more. You have the right to fight for the recovery of these damages to ease your mental and physical pain and suffering, as well as a way to continue providing for yourself and your loved ones, even after an injury.
A Personal Injury Lawyer Will Fight For Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits
When an accident occurs on a work site, you are eligible to file for benefits with the New York Workers’ Compensation Benefits. You must make sure that you go about it the right way, so they have no reason to deny your claim. Your personal injury lawyer fight in your best interest, gunning for:
- The full coverage of associated medical costs to your injury.
- Two-thirds compensation for lost wages due to your injury.
- Disability benefits if they apply to your case.
- Death benefits if your loved one has passed due to a construction site accident.
A Personal Injury Lawyer May Also Represent You When Suing An Involved Third-Party
When negligence is present or when the injuries are severe, there are few cases where workers’ compensation will adequality cover the costs of your damages.
In the scenario that any other party plays a role in the responsibility of your injury, your personal injury attorney will review your case to consider suing a third-party, as well to compensate you for the rest of your damages. These third-parties may include negligent:
- Property owners
- Manufacturers of defective safety equipment
- Manufacturers of defective construction equipment
- Equipment operators
