What Damages am I Entitled to?
All employers with one or more employees in New York State are required to have workers’ compensation insurance, which usually covers four categories of benefits – medical benefits, death benefits, temporary or permanent disability benefits, and supplemental job displacement benefits.
The specific types of damages and amounts would be determined by the facts of your workers comp case.
What Types of Workers Comp Cases do you Handle?
Each year we handle many different types of workers comp cases.
However, to give you an idea of some of the types of workers comp cases we might take on, some different types of workers comp issues are as follows:
- Back problems: over one million workers per year sustain an acute or chronic back problem because of their work, such as having to lift heavy packages in a shipping facility.
- Chemical exposure: as an example, PFAS chemicals used during the manufacturing processes of many popular items, including cookware, have been found to cause lung and other injuries.
- Explosions: when mines don’t follow proper safety procedures, workers can be left subject to the debilitating effects of an explosion.
- Falling objects: when objects on a construction site haven’t been placed securely or properly, they can fall, causing severe injury or even a wrongful death.
These are only a few of the types of industrial accidents workers in central New York might suffer. Each day there are also truck injuries, toxic exposures, electrocution injuries, ladder accidents, crane accidents, spine injuries, and wrongful deaths that occur because of dangerous workplaces.
