Do I Need an Attorney if I’m Injured at Work?

Yes. After an injury on the job, your employer, anyone else responsible, and the insurance companies will not be on your side. It will be easy to take advantage of you. You should immediately contact a work injury attorney who can stand up for you.

Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C. will find out what happened to cause your accident. We will collect evidence and conduct an independent investigation involving experts if necessary. We will determine if anyone was negligent or violated any laws. This can help your case.

We have years of experience and have won millions of dollars for victims injured on the job. When you sit down with us, we can tell you about other cases that are similar to yours where we’ve gotten the maximum amount of compensation possible. You can also review our case results to see what we’ve achieved.

Workers’ Compensation vs. Third Party Claims

Many workers in Queens are covered by Workers’ Compensation insurance and can get relief after an injury. Workers’ Compensation does not establish fault and is not a lawsuit. However, it will only cover your medical costs and a portion of your wages. It won’t cover everything.

If someone outside of your employer or a coworker caused your injuries, you might also be able to file a third-party personal injury claim to get full compensation for all of your losses. It’s important to work with an attorney who knows workplace injury law and can help you determine the best course of action for you.

Who Might Be Responsible For an Injury on the Job?

While your employer or a coworker may have caused your injuries, there are other people and companies who may be at fault as well. A thorough investigation into your workplace accident can determine all of the parties that might be to blame.

Common third parties that are responsible for injuries on the job include:

  • General contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Independent contractors
  • Vendors
  • Manufacturers of tools, materials, and equipment
  • Distributors
  • Retailers
  • Motor vehicle drivers

If someone else is to blame, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against them to cover your losses.
