What to Do If You Have Been Injured
If you have sustained a work injury or have developed an illness or condition that is work-related, report the situation as soon as possible to your supervisor or manager. Also make sure you follow all of the protocols and procedures your company has in place for work injuries.
Under New York Workers Compensation Law, your employer is required to cover all reasonable medical expenses associated with your injury. They are also required to provide weekly cash benefits that are a percentage of your usual weekly salary. The majority of employers have workers’ compensation insurance which includes these benefits.
Protect Your Rights
Regardless of the injury you have sustained, it may be in your best interest to contact one of our Nassau County workplace injury lawyers from Polsky, Shouldice & Rosen to discuss your case. Many employers and/or insurance carriers make various attempts to pressure injured workers to drop their claims. Or, they may accuse the worker of lying and claim the injury never happened, or that it happened after work hours which would waive any employer liability. One of our attorneys can present a strong case on your behalf to protect your rights.
During Your Recovery Process
There are many work injury cases where the employee eventually heals and can go back to work, however, that is not always possible. While the worker is totally unable to work, they should receive benefits. During the recovery process, a physician may allow the worker to go back to work under stringent restrictions. Your lawyer can make sure that your employer makes any necessary accommodations for your return or provides another position until you are physically capable of going back to your prior position.
There are also many other cases where the injury or illness is so serious that the worker can never return to their prior position or they are unable to work at all. In these cases, Nassau County workplace injury lawyers may be able to help the injured worker obtain a financial settlement to compensate for their losses.
