NYC Work Accident Attorney
Hurt on the job in New York? Put experience on your side.
Work accidents happen fast, and they can happen to anyone. Your accident may have been over in moments, but you may be dealing with the consequences for months or years. Don't go it alone. Get an experienced NYC work accident lawyer from Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP in your corner, fighting for your rights.
We've been fighting hard for injured New York workers for over 80 years. We help workers who are injured in all types of work accidents, including but not limited to:
- Slip and falls/trip and falls
- Work-related car accidents
- Falls from heights
- Lifting injuries
- Struck by or caught between objects
- Machinery accidents
- Exposure to dangerous chemicals
- Construction accidents
The law in New York is clear. If you were hurt on the job, regardless of fault, you can get full compensation for your reasonable and necessary medical expenses as well as partial replacement of lost wages in most circumstances. If you suffered a permanent injury to your extremities, such as partial loss of use of a hand, you can get additional compensation for permanent partial disability - even if you didn't miss a single day of work. And if a negligent third party, such as a contractor or manufacturer of faulty equipment, was involved, you can file a third-party claim for additional losses such as excess wage loss and pain and suffering.
Getting the benefits you deserve can be hard - we can help
But that doesn't mean actually getting workers' compensation is easy. If you were hurt in an accident that happened at a definite place of time, it may be hard for your employer to dispute that you were hurt on the job, but that certainly doesn't mean they won't try. Or they may argue that you had a pre-existing condition or otherwise question the extent of your injuries.
