Attorneys Helping You Claim Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Nearly all employers in New York are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. And if you are injured or sickened on the job, it is your right to collect benefits from your employer’s policy.
Unfortunately, things don’t always work so smoothly for injured workers who try to claim their benefits. For a variety of reasons, the workers’ compensation system has become biased in favor of employers and insurers. Employees must often fight for the benefits they are legally entitled to under the law.
If you’ve been in a workplace accident and are worried about your claim, the dedicated attorneys at Subin Associates, LLP, are here to help. Our firm has been advocating on behalf of injured clients for 65 years. We have the experience, skills and resources to guide you from initial claim filing through all levels of appeal.
Representing Workers In All Fields And Industries
Some jobs are inherently more dangerous than others, but every occupation comes with risks of injury. Our firm is prepared to help you pursue benefits for any type of workplace injury, including:
- Construction accidents (caused by falling objects, scaffolding collapse, equipment failure, power tool injuries, etc.)
- Musculoskeletal injuries (often caused by lifting heavy objects)
- Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents
- Repetitive stress injuries occurring over time (such as carpal tunnel syndrome)
- On-the-job motor vehicle accidents for commercial drivers or those who travel as part of their work
- Occupational illness and diseases contracted at work or because of working around hazardous materials
Third-Party Liability Claims
New York law generally prohibits workers from suing their employers for injuries sustained on the job, making workers’ compensation the “exclusive remedy” for injuries. However, if your on-the-job injuries were caused by a party other than your employer, we can help you pursue a third-party liability lawsuit in addition to seeking workers’ compensation benefits. Examples of liable third parties could include:
- Equipment or product manufacturers
- Other drivers who cause auto accidents with commercial drivers
- Third-party companies contracted to manage the facilities where you work
These are just a few examples from what could be a very long list. It’s important to speak to an attorney to fully understand your legal options for compensation.
