Pursuing Maximum Results for Injured Workers
Many people believe that if they are injured at work, they are limited to whatever money and benefits they can get from the workers’ compensation system. In many cases, however, injured workers are able to obtain additional compensation by bringing personal injury claims.
At the Albany-based law firm of the Law Offices of Sanford Rosenblum, P.C., our experienced New York personal injury trial attorneys help clients who have been injured in workplace accidents and the families of those who have been killed seek damages beyond workers’ compensation.
Understanding Your Rights After a Workplace Accident
Under New York workers’ compensation law, you cannot sue your employer or a fellow employee for injuries resulting from a workplace accident. That is because the workers’ comp system provides the same limited benefits no matter who was at fault for your injuries.
However, if a general contractor, a property owner or a manufacturer may be responsible for your injuries, you may have a personal injury claim.
Depending on the facts of your case, seeking damages beyond workers’ compensation by pursuing a personal injury claim may get you a significantly greater recovery than workers’ compensation.
Identifying All Possible Sources of Compensation
If you only consult a workers’ compensation lawyer about your accident, he or she may not be prepared to bring a personal injury claim on your behalf. Our attorneys have an established track record of getting significant results for injured workers in personal injury cases.
