The scope of injury in construction sites

While our firm practices all kinds of workers' compensation claims, we also have expertise in handling accidents or injuries of construction workers. If you are not familiar with the construction industry, or even if you are familiar but have never suffered an injury, you may wonder why this particular area receives so much focus. The truth is that, believe it or not, construction workers face some of the highest risks of severe injuries.

Helping New York workers recover compensation for illness

For most workers' compensation claims, the aid of an attorney is more of a safeguard than a necessity, because your employer's insurance will generally be willing to pay out if a claim is made. Some injuries may occur under questionable circumstances, and you may need legal aid to help you prove the validity of your claim, but in most instances, legal assistance will simply allow you to better understand your rights and the amount to which you are entitled. However, with workplace illnesses, legal aid is often a necessity.

What is the going and coming rule?

People are often surprised by just how many different circumstances are covered by workers' compensation benefits. Its more than just accidents or injuries that occur while on the job. Certain other injuries that are job-related can also be covered, even including things like work-related parties. Except for commutes and a few other instances, if you suffered an injury while doing anything related to your job, you could recover compensation.

Workers' comp illnesses can affect timeline

For every type of civil and criminal case brought before the courts, there is a time period known as a statute of limitations by which legal action must be taken. Failure to take legal action within the allotted time can make it much more difficult or even impossible to recover any damages or compensation, no matter how valid your claim may be.
