Unless at a construction site, factory, or another workplace that is known to frequently cause injuries, many people ignore the risks associated with their day-to-day jobs. Unfortunately, this is a misconception. Injuries can occur anywhere, from restaurants to office environments.
An employer’s workers’ compensation insurance is meant to protect employees by providing benefits following a workplace injury. All too often, however, this compensation does not adequately cover all your costs and does not provide for non-economic damages, such as emotional pain and suffering. In order to fully understand your rights, we encourage you to speak with an experienced New York workplace injury attorney who can walk you through your legal options.
At Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, we understand the difficulty of adjusting to your life following a workplace accident. Depending on the job and the injury, you might find yourself unable to work for a long time. Our team of personal injury lawyers is here to help. If you would like to learn more about how you can protect your future, contact our office at 800-223-2814.

Most places of employment are rife with rules and regulations that protect employees and customers alike. When those rules are not properly enforced by the employer, however, accidents are likely to occur. The range of possible injuries can vary from workplace to workplace, but some of the most common include:
Most of the time, after you receive an injury in the workplace, the only compensation you will be offered will come from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. The money you can recover from this, however, may not cover all of your expenses following the accident. Additionally, workers’ compensation will not cover things such as your pain and suffering, nor any punitive damages towards the employer for allowing you to work in an unsafe environment.
The insurer may also deny your claim for workers’ compensation for reasons that are out of your control. If your injury occurred without any other witnesses, or if you didn’t report your injury immediately, your claim may be denied and you won’t receive any compensation. That’s why it’s important to contact an experienced New York worker’s comp lawyer as soon as possible.
An injury in the workplace can upend your livelihood and significantly impact your ability to support your family. After medical expenses, unwanted career changes, and all the other consequences that follow, the last thing you want to worry about is going up against an insurance company just to fight for the compensation you are owed. Thankfully, you don’t have to do this alone. Working with the personal injury team at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, you’ll receive legal guidance to properly approach your case.
