Workers’ Comp Attorney – Nassau County

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.

  1. The first thing you need to do is to report the accident as soon as possible.
  2. Collect documentation.  If you are planning on pursuing a compensation claim for this injury, it is imperative that you have a proper documentation of everything; when it happened, what happened, and your injuries. If you are unsure of what documentation you may need, please ask a Nassau County workers’ comp attorney for more information.
  3. Visit a medical professional. Your health and wellbeing should always come first, so please make sure to see a medical professional as soon as the injuries happened. Some patients believe that they have to wait until the legal process has started to seek medical treatment so they can prove they have been injured. However, this is not true as you deserve to seek treatment as soon as possible.
  4. Do not wait to speak to a Nassau County workers’ comp attorney. There are different statutes of limitations put in place when it comes to workers’ compensation law, meaning that you only have a specific amount of time between the injury and when you can file a claim. As a result, it is important to seek legal guidance early and often throughout the claims process.

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.
