If you have been injured at work, then chances are you may be feeling alone and confused. But please know that you do not have to deal with the aftermath of a work-related injury alone. There are a lot of complexities that come with filing a workers’ compensation claim, which can be overwhelming for anyone that is new to the process. Thankfully, an experienced Nassau County workers’ comp attorney can help.
If I have been injured at work, what do I do?
The choices you make after being injured at work will set the foundation for your workers’ compensation claim. As a result, it is important to contact the legal team at Polsky, Shouldice & Rosen, P.C. if you have questions at any time whatsoever.
Am I able to keep my same job?
If you can still physically perform the duties of your job, your employer must generally offer you the next position that becomes available. This is if you had to leave your job to seek treatment and/or recover. However, if your employer had to hire someone to cover your job position during your absence, then they do not have to fire that person to give you your original job back. With that said, this area of law is complex and there may be exceptions to generally accepted rules. Our legal team will be able to help clarify your situation once we learn more about your circumstances.
If you have suffered an injury while at work, do not hesitate to seek compensation for that harm. Our team of Nassau County workers’ comp attorneys at Polsky, Shouldice, & Rosen, P.C. is here to help you, so please schedule a consultation with us to get the process started today.
