What types of injuries do workers suffer in Rockland County?
Workplace accidents happen frequently, and workers can be left seriously hurt. The specific types and frequency of injuries may vary depending on the industry, workplace conditions, and nature of the job. But common types of workplace injuries include:
- Sprains and strains – Injuries to muscles, tendons, and ligaments often caused by overexertion, lifting heavy objects, or sudden movements.
- Cuts and lacerations – Cuts or tears in the skin due to contact with sharp objects or machinery.
- Fractures and broken bones – These can be the result of falls, being struck by objects, or accidents involving heavy machinery.
- Back and neck injuries – Strains, sprains, herniated discs, and other injuries caused by lifting, falls, or repetitive motions.
- Head injuries – Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), concussions, or skull fractures caused by falls, being struck by objects, or accidents involving vehicles.
- Burns – Thermal burns from fire, explosions, or contact with hot surfaces, as well as chemical burns from exposure to hazardous substances.
- Repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) – Conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, or bursitis caused by repetitive motions or poor ergonomics.
- Respiratory conditions – Occupational diseases such as asthma, silicosis, or pneumoconiosis caused by exposure to harmful substances or poor air quality.
- Eye injuries – Damage to the eyes caused by flying objects, chemical splashes, or exposure to bright lights or lasers.
If you’ve been hurt in a workplace accident, you deserve workers’ compensation benefits that can cover your medical treatment and provide you with partial lost wages. But the claims process can be complicated.
How can a workers’ compensation lawyer help me get benefits?
There’s a lot that can go wrong in the claims process, and it can be difficult to deal with your claim while you are still recovering from your injury. A workers' compensation lawyer can:
- ensure that all necessary forms and documentation are completed accurately and submitted within the required timeframes
- gather evidence to support your claim, including medical records, witness statements, accident reports, and any other documentation that strengthens the case
- help you prepare for an independent medical examination
- handle all communications with the insurance company
- negotiate a settlement with the insurance company that meets your needs
- represent you at all hearings
- help you file an appeal if your claim is denied
A workers' compensation lawyer can guide you through the process every step of the way, keep you updated on the progress of your claim, and answer any questions that you have.
