When you go to work, you expect a safe environment in the workplace. Unfortunately, on-the- job accidents injure people in New York City and the surrounding areas on a daily basis. If you were injured on the job, you may be entitled to make a separate claim for damages for personal injuries in addition to any claim for workers’ compensation that you may have. At Dalbir Singh & Associates P.C., our workplace accident lawyers are committed to providing compassionate representation to each and every client.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there were 78 job-related fatalities in New York City in 2017, an increase from the previous year. Many more people are severely, often permanently injured in accidents at work, creating a burden for victims and their families.
While workers’ compensation provides some benefits to those injured at work, it is not intended to compensate an accident victim for damages caused by pain and suffering, lost union benefits, as well as other damages. Fortunately, it is often not the only option to consider. If a third party (someone other than your employer) caused or contributed to an injury on the job, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim against that party to recover additional compensation for your injuries. Damages extend beyond what is available through the workers’ compensation system, including non-economic losses like pain and suffering. Damages also may account for the full extent of a worker’s lost wages and earning capacity, rather than offering just a partial wage replacement.
