Long Island Workers Compensation Lawyer
On-the-Job Injury on Long Island? A Determined Workers Compensation Lawyer Is On Your Side
Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP has been helping Long Island workplace injury victims for over 80 years. If you were hurt at work and need medical procedures, occupational therapy or vocational rehabilitation because you're disabled due to a job injury and can't go back to work, we're the legal team you need. You may be struggling with a debilitating work-related illness or were injured in a catastrophic construction site accident, hospital worker contaminated needle stick or stress-related workplace heart attack.
Our national reputation as diligent workers compensation attorneys who never back down is accurate. We've been winning major workers compensation claim settlements for over eight decades, and we will help you too. If you were injured in a job accident injury or contracted one of the many long-term workplace illnesses or occupational diseases New Yorkers often develop after years on the job-such as silicosis, asbestosis and mesothelioma, work-related cancer or job knee injury-we will fight for the compensation you deserve.
As long-established Long Island work injury attorneys, we are often up against aggressive insurance adjusters who try to push low-ball settlements on our clients. But we know there's a much higher number they're willing to name rather than face us in court. We help civil service disability pension applicants, as well, such as NY transit workers, law enforcement and sanitation employees, and injured union members can count on our fierce legal services too. We also handle Social Security Disability claims.
Long Island workers can be seriously hurt on the job
Long Island workplace accidents can result in many types of different injuries. Some common types of accidents include:
- Falls from heights, such as ladders or scaffolding.
- Slip and falls on slippery or uneven surfaces.
- Accidents involving machinery, such as construction equipment, power tools, or manufacturing machinery.
- Repetitive motion injuries from performing the same tasks over and over.
- Construction accidents such as falling objects, collapsing structures, or being caught in-between objects.
- Burns and chemical exposure.
- Electrical accidents after exposure to live electricity.
- Vehicle accidents, including delivery crashes and construction vehicle collisions.
- Occupational diseases from exposure to hazardous conditions or substances, leading to hearing loss, respiratory disorders, and dermatological conditions.
The severity and specific types of injuries can vary widely. Workers have suffered broken bones, burns, back and spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), respiratory injuries, eye injuries, and cancer.
You deserve workers’ compensation benefits for the injuries you suffered
These benefits include coverage of your medical expenses and partial lost wages while you can’t work. But employers and insurance companies often dispute claims. A claim can be denied for many reasons. For example:
- Your injury was not reported within a required timeframe
- There was a lack of medical evidence to support your claim
- The insurance company argues that your injury was pre-existing
- The insurance company argues your injury was not work-related
- Paperwork was not completed correctly or there was missing documentation
Navigating the claims process can be difficult, especially while you are still recovering from your injuries. That’s why you need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to fight for you.
We can move your workers’ compensation claim forward
The lawyers at our firm can guide you through the process every step of the way. We can help you complete all the required paperwork, submit required documentation, and ensure all deadlines are met. Our legal team can investigate your workplace accident and gather medical evidence that supports your claim.
If your claim is denied, we can represent you at all hearings in front of the Workers’ Compensation Board. In addition, we can negotiate with the insurance company on a settlement that meets your needs. If needed, we will continue to fight for you in court.
