Millions of workers are injured on the job each year. Thousands of those injuries result in death. Work related accidents are not limited to jobs that require physical labor. Employees from all types of industries can suffer an injury due to a slip and fall, improper maintenance, chemical exposure, or faulty equipment. The lawyers at Jacoby and Meyers help employees in the New York City area recover damages for their work related injuries.
Typical Injuries Suffered While at Work
Injuries sustained at work can run the gamut from skin disorders to broken bones to traumatic brain injuries. Common work-related injuries include:
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
Toxic Chemical Exposure
Knee and Foot Injuries
Hand & Shoulder Injuries
Traumatic brain injury
Spinal Cord Injury
Back and Neck Injury
Pursuing Just Compensation
Employees injured at work cannot directly sue their employer. To recover employer related damages, they must file a Workers’ Compensation Claim. Those damages, however, are basically limited to medical expenses and lost wages – and possibly disability benefits. All too often, these damages do not fully compensate you. If a third party was partially responsible for your accident, you may be able to seek further compensation from them with a claim for:
- Defective equipment
- Failure to maintain or properly use equipment
- Failure to properly train or supervise
- Failure to maintain premises
The experienced personal injury attorneys at Jacoby and Meyers will help you identify liable parties and file Workers’ Compensation and third party claims to secure the compensation you are entitled to, such as:
- Medical Treatment
- Hospital Stays
- Lost Income
- Future Income
- Pain and Suffering
