Contact the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel for Information and Assistance
When someone is injured on the job, the injured person is entitled to pursue a workers' compensation claim for medical expenses and lost wages as well as a third-party claim for pain and suffering and other losses when a party other than your employer is responsible for your accident.
At the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel, we can help you find answers to your New York workers' compensation questions.
Third Party Liability May Apply As Well
Under the law, you generally cannot pursue a lawsuit against your employer injuries sustained at work. The purpose of workers' compensation is designed to provide the benefits that a worker needs for medical expenses and lost wages. But many people who have been injured on the job do not realize that they may be entitled to a pain and suffering recovery for their work-related injuries.
When you are hurt on the job, it is important to explore whether a third-party claim against the property owner, general contractor, subcontractor or other party is an option.
