The Law Offices of Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP offer diligent, aggressive, down-to-earth workers comp lawyers in The Bronx who will fight hard for every penny of workers compensation you deserve. For more than 90 years, we've been helping job injury victims who are in pain and may also be unable to do their job due to any number of job injuries, including construction injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome and healthcare worker injuries. We are well versed in representing union members injured on the job as well, and handle civil service disability pension claims for New York state, city and municipal employees.
If you were injured in a workplace accident or have one of the many long-term workplace illnesses or occupational diseases that New Yorkers can get, including mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure, tunnel worker silicosis, cancer or had a work-related heart attack, we know what you're going through and will help you get back on your feet-physically, emotionally and financially. In most workers comp cases, the initial low-ball offer our clients are pressured by insurance adjusters to accept is far lower than the amount they'll eventually reach so they won't have to face us in court.
When workers are hurt on the job, we fight for their rights
In the Bronx, as in other cities, workplace injuries can occur across various industries and job sectors. Common types of workplace injuries include:
- Broken bones – Fractures can happen when workers fall off scaffolding or ladders, or slip and fall on slippery surfaces.
- Lifting injuries – Many jobs involve repeated heavy lifting. This can cause strains and sprains in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
- Cuts and lacerations – This can happen to workers who handle sharp objects or work with machinery that involves cutting or shearing actions.
- Crush injuries – Fractures and amputations can happen when workers work with or near heavy machinery or construction equipment.
- Back and neck Injuries – These can be the result of slip and falls, overexertion, or repetitive motion involving heavy lifting.
- Burn injuries – Any worker in manufacturing, construction, or food services may be exposed to heat sources, chemicals, or electrical hazards that can result in burns, from first-degree burns to more severe third-degree burns.
- Respiratory injuries – Workers exposed to harmful substances or poor air quality, such as in construction, manufacturing, or chemical industries, may suffer lung damage, respiratory illnesses, or aggravation of pre-existing conditions.
If you’ve been hurt in a workplace accident, you deserve workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits can cover the cost of medical treatment and provide you with partial wages while you are unable to return to the workplace.
But the claims process can be complicated. Employers and their insurance companies may dispute your claim. They may question how seriously you were hurt or argue that your injury was not job-related. That’s why you need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer who knows how to move your claim forward.
Our attorneys are very familiar with the workers’ compensation laws in New York and what it takes to get results in the Bronx. We are determined to help you get the benefits you need and deserve after a workplace injury.
