Fatal Workplace Injury
When a Loved One Dies On the Job, It Can Mean Financial Ruin—We Can Help You Recover
It’s a spouse and family’s worst nightmare. A beloved husband, wife, father or mother heads off to work in the morning and doesn’t come back. With so many hazardous jobs in and around New York City—from industrial crane work and transit driver jobs to law enforcement and tunnel projects—it is all-too common for us to get a call from a bereaved family member who is struggling to put their life back together. If your relative was killed at work, you are grieving and yet you must take action in order to protect your rights to the workers compensation benefits you have coming to you. The harsh truth, however, is that even widows will be given the run around by workers compensation insurance companies after filing a workers compensation claim. That’s where we come in. We will fight relentlessly for your rights and go after a settlement that will help you make ends meet and finally begin to heal.
Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP Will Fight For Your Restitution
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, each year in NYC, trade, transportation, and utilities jobs showed the largest number of workplace fatalities, and in 2010 over half of all job-related falling deaths took place in the construction industry. In addition, since 2005, the number of workplace homicides has increased by nearly 30 percent. Unfortunately, many New Yorkers who lost the family breadwinner in a workplace death don’t know that they have rights to claim their loved one’s workers compensation payments, but the money is there to help you get back on your feet financially, and we will help you claim it. When an injured state or city employee, such as an NYPD police officer or NYFD firefighter, dies on the job, we apply our extensive experience in representing union members as well.
Don’t let anyone tell you that there is no workers compensation coverage for job fatalities—the wrongful death of a family member is devastating, and we can help you get the financial restitution you deserve.
