Full compensation for injured union workers
With construction in New York at an all-time high, union construction workers are facing increasing demand for their skills and expertise. At the same time, they are facing every increasing risk of injury and loss of work time.
If you are working a union job and are injured in an accident, you need to know what to do and what your rights are. A top union accident lawyer in NYC, Michael S. Lamonsoff understands exactly the obstacles faced by a union construction worker, and exactly how to use the law to help union workers when they are injured.
Forty years ago, Michael’s grandfather, a union construction worker, was injured on a job site. Michael saw firsthand how a construction accident can change someone’s life for the worse in an instant. As an attorney, he decided to learn just how to best use the law to fight for the rights of injured union workers. The lawyers in his law firm are dedicated to just one thing: winning cases for their clients.
After an injury, union workers may have more than one claim for compensation
Forty years ago, all an injured union worker could expect to receive as compensation was worker’s compensation. These benefits can pay for needed medical care and make up for a portion of the wages that a worker may have lose while recovering. However, as Michael says, “We all know that it’s not possible to survive on worker’s compensation alone.”
Fortunately, state and Federal laws are now in place that provide additional protection and compensation for union construction workers—if you know those laws and understand how to apply them to your case.
At the Law Offices of Michael S. Lamonsoff, our team of New York union accident attorneys, investigators, and claims assistants work as a tireless group to uncover every possible avenue of compensation that may be available to an injured union worker. For client after client, we have found the exact legal strategies to use to win large verdicts and settlements.
