Many unionized construction workers who have been injured on the job contact my office with questions regarding their rights.
Are they entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits? Can they sue for pain and suffering? Are Social Security Disability benefits available to them? What about collecting unemployment benefits or New York State disability?
At my firm, we are happy to provide a free case evaluation. Each case is independently evaluated by me. I then provide answers to the above questions regarding your rights to sue, collect Workers’ Compensation or Social Security, unemployment or New York State disability benefits. In many instances, I will represent the injured worker in several different actions in order to make sure that they receive maximum recovery from all possible sources. You don’t need to contact separate attorneys for Workers’ Compensation, Social Security Disability, or personal injury who are able to give you sound legal advice regarding all of your injury rights.
If you have been injured on a construction site and have been injured as a result of falling from a height or even being struck by an object that fell from a height, you may have special rights under the New York State Labor Laws Section 240 and Section 241.
Whether or not your injury occurred at a construction site, we would be happy to meet with you regarding the circumstances of your particular situation.
