If I suffer an injury at work, who will pay for my costs and expenses?

If you are injured on the job, you entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, which include some medical expenses, wage loss and other immediate costs. However, workers' compensation benefits are not likely to be nearly enough to provide complete compensation for all the damages that you have experienced.

New powerful laws enacted by the New York State government now allow injured workers to sue the people whose negligent failure to follow safety rules and regulations resulted in the worker’s injuries. This gives you the option of bringing a personal injury claim to receive financial recovery for the entirety of your loss, including pain and suffering as well as your medical expenses.

At the Law Offices of Michael S. Lamonsoff, our team of workplace injury lawyers in New York investigate every case aggressively and work hard to make sure that you receive a settlement or verdict that will fairly and justly compensate you for the full extent of your injuries.
