Manhattan Work Injury Attorney
When Manhattan workers are hurt, they turn to us
When you go to work, you expect to do your job and go home at the end of the day. You don't and can't expect to get injured during your shift. For too many Manhattan workers, though, that's exactly what happens. A Manhattan work injury lawyer at Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP can help you get your life back on track.
We help Manhattan workers who have sustained a significant injury on the job, including but not limited to:
- Brain Injuries
- Back Injuries
- Hand and Arm Injuries
- Knee, Leg and Foot Injuries
- Shoulder Injuries
- Internal Injuries
- Muscle Injuries
- Broken Bones
- Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI)
- Occupational Diseases
It only takes a moment to sustain an injury that could affect you for a long time. Recovery might take weeks, months or even longer. You may even have an injury that will never completely heal. Fortunately, you have rights under New York law, but you need the right work injury attorney to fight for them.
What are your legal rights if you’re hurt at work in Manhattan?
In New York, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits in most circumstances if you sustain a work injury. Workers’ comp will cover the full cost of reasonable and necessary medical treatment – including surgery, physical therapy, medication, medical devices, and so on – as well as a percentage of your lost wages if you are unable to work due to your injury. You can also get permanent partial disability benefits if you have a permanent injury to an extremity, such as a hand or arm - even if that injury doesn't affect your ability to do your job.
Depending on the circumstances, you may also have a third-party claim against a person or business other than your employer that caused your injury, such as a motorist who caused a work-related car accident or a manufacturer of defective equipment. The only way to know what your work injury claim is worth is to talk to a Manhattan injury lawyer who can evaluate your case.
Our law firm will fight for you every step of the way
In theory, the system is supposed to protect workers. In practice, it often throws obstacles in your way. Insurance companies may downplay your injuries or question whether a particular medical treatment is reasonable and necessary. They know how to use the system to protect their bottom line – at the expense of injured workers. Level the playing field with the right Manhattan work injury attorney on your side.
Our attorneys know how to prove your injury was work-related and advocate for all of the compensation you need while you focus on getting better. We have a proven track record of results - billions recovered for injured workers in Manhattan, the Five Boroughs and beyond.
If you've been hurt on the job, you can meet with an experienced Manhattan work injury lawyer absolutely free. There's no fee unless we recover for you. That means you can absolutely afford to hire us - the only question is whether you can afford to go it alone. Schedule your free consultation today.
