Injured in a workplace accident? We can help

Workers' compensation benefits are important for employees of all kinds because they provide protection and security to workers. Workers who are sure that they and their families will be taken care of in the event of an accident are much more likely to be productive and make sacrifices for the good of their company. Workers' compensation is a statement of goodwill on behalf of employers that they care for their employees, which generally causes employees to care for their company.

While every employee should be aware of their rights regarding workers' compensation benefits, there are certain industries in which employees should be particularly concerned with workers' compensation. These industries tend to involve jobs or work related functions which carry a high risk of injury. Employees who work in restaurants, factories or construction sites are among the most high-risk, as a malfunctioning product could result in injury beyond your control.

The frightening fact is that no matter how good you are at your job, there is always the risk of injury, especially if your work depends on certain machines or products. Cooking in a restaurant may not seem like a particularly dangerous occupation, but it only takes one faulty oven to cause a fire that injures many employees, including you.

If you are injured on the job in any way, you are likely eligible for workers' compensation benefits. It may surprise you to learn that you do not even usually have to determine fault, and injuries suffered during horseplay could also be compensated. If you live in New York, and you have suffered an injury on the job, please visit our workers' compensation webpagee to learn how we can help you get the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.
