Brooklyn Work Injury Lawyer
When you're hurt on the job in Brooklyn, we go to work
No one starts their work day expecting to end it with an injury. But for too many Brooklyn workers, that's exactly what happens. A single work injury can have far-reaching effects on your quality of life, and you need help to put your life back together. The Brooklyn work injury attorneys at Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP can help.
We represent Brooklyn workers with a full range of injuries, including but not limited to:
- Brain Injuries
- Back Injuries

- Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI)

Some work injuries heal in time. Others are permanent. But even a relatively minor injury can have a major impact on your life. There might be medical complications that require additional treatment. You may not be able to work, and the bills pile up. It’s a tough situation, but you have legal rights and options.
Your legal rights after an injury at work in Brooklyn
Under New York law, you are generally entitled to workers' compensation, regardless of fault. Workers’ compensation pays for all of your “reasonable and necessary” medical expenses after a work injury, plus a percentage of your lost wages if you can’t work due to the injury. If you have a permanent injury, you may qualify for loss of use benefits. And if you lost a loved one due to a fatal work injury, your family may be entitled to workers’ compensation death benefits.
Depending on the circumstances of your work injury, you may also have a claim against a third party, such as a vendor, property owner, or equipment manufacturer. These third-party claims can provide you with additional compensation, such as pain and suffering.
That said, you need to act fast to protect those rights. Notify your employer in writing as soon as possible, get immediate medical attention, and give us a call. Ultimately, the only way to find out how much your work injury is worth is to talk to an experienced Brooklyn attorney who knows the law and knows the system. That’s why you need to contact us as soon as possible.
