Personal Injury Lawyers in Brooklyn

Getting hurt at work puts one in a stressful and aggravating situation immediately after it occurs.  Involuntary time off from work is not something anyone wants and the only hope is that the injury isn’t permanent.  Looking at weeks or months off is terrifying if your income is a major contributor to your family’s finances.  Along with these worries there are also the financial strains of medical bills and making ends meet.   Bills from hospitals, doctors and related medical services can be both shocking and frustrating.  Having your future tampered with by an accident is something nobody should ever have to go through and having an experienced lawyer is the first step in remedying the problem.  

Brooklyn Personal Injury Lawyers

All companies are required to have workers’ compensation insurance in New York which opens the door for claims to be filed by injured persons.  At Savino & Smollar we assist clients in this process by investigating the accident, identifying the responsible parties, and filing the correct legal claim.   With offices near Brooklyn, our experienced attorneys can navigate you through this long and frequently frustrating legal process so you can focus on getting the proper health care and recover from your injuries. We have the knowledge, skill & experience to get you the money you deserve.  Oftentimes insurance companies will try and dispute these claims, so knowing what constitutes a personal workplace injury is important.  Some of the main types of on-the-job accidents include:

  • Construction , automotive, factory, and industrial accidents
  • Environmental hazards
  • Insufficient training or safety rules
  • Co-worker accidents
  • Amputation due to faulty machinery
  • Electrocution, burns, faulty machinery, and crush injuries
  • Head or spine injuries from falling objects 

Although the employer may be at fault in some instances, in others there is third-party liability (someone other than your employer) in addition to a workers’ compensation claim.  By hiring an attorney, we can identify the potential third-party and file a personal injury claim.  The third party can be determined as being responsible and claims can be brought against them accordingly.  In Brooklyn, third-party claims will bring you compensation for many of the losses that a personal or workplace injury has caused.  These losses include: past or future medical bills, loss of relationship with spouse, lost wages, emotional distress and mental anguish, pain and suffering, loss of potential income, and disfigurement/scarring.  To discover the value of the claim, contacting an experienced attorney is the first step in the correct direction.

Personal Injury Complexities 

Oftentimes, in workplace injury claims, the insurance firms will attempt to dispute the severity of the injury as well as the recovery time.  The laws for this are complicated and to truly navigate it in the most optimal way, a skilled lawyer is essential.  Your right to the employer’s insurance must be protected as it is what keeps your household stable in the troubling time of being injured.
