Personal Injury Lawyers in NYC

Getting hurt at work puts one in a stressful and aggravating situation soon after it occurs.  Involuntary time off from work is not something anyone wants and the only hope would be that the injury isn’t permanent.  Looking at weeks or months off is terrifying if your job is a major contributor to your family’s finances.  Along with these worries there’s 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 no one should ever have to go through and having an experienced attorney is the first step in remedying the problem.  

NYC Personal Injury Attorneys

All companies are required to have workers’ compensation insurance in NY 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 proper legal claim.   With offices near NYC, our experienced attorneys can navigate you through this long and frequently frustrating legal process so you can focus on getting the correct medical care and recover from your injuries. We have the knowledge, skill & experience to get you the amount of money you deserve.  Oftentimes insurance representatives will attempt and dispute these claims, so knowing what constitutes a personal workplace injury is important.  A few of the main types of on-the-job accidents include:

  • Construction site, 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 

Even though the employer may be responsible in some cases, in others there is third-party liability (someone other than your employer) in addition to a workers’ compensation claim.  By hiring a lawyer, we can identify the third-party and file a personal injury claim.  The third party can be identified as being responsible and claims can be brought against them accordingly.  In NYC, third-party claims will bring you compensation for most of the losses 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 in potential income, and disfigurement/scarring.  To find the potential value of a claim, contacting a skilled lawyer is the first step in the correct direction.

Personal Injury Complexities 

Oftentimes, in workplace injury claims, the insurance companies will attempt to dispute the severity of the injury as well as the recovery time.  The laws around 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.
