We really don’t know what we don’t know. And in Workers’ Compensation, if you don’t know what’s to come, you could find yourself with the short end of the stick. I recently helped a client on a Workers’ Compensation case. He was an employee at a Deli where his duties included work with a slicer machine. At work one day, he accidentally sliced the tip of his finger off while using the slicer machine. Workers Comp Attorney NYC 10022
My client did not have health insurance and, knowing that emergency room bills needed to be paid, he contacted our office to see if he had any legal rights. After getting in touch with us, we quickly consulted him about his rights to Workers’ Compensation.
What is Workers’ Compensation?
Under the law, every worker is entitled to be compensated for injuries suffered on the job. Historically, the law allows you to file a lawsuit against your employer for those injuries suffered while in your employment. However, your chances of receiving compensation in such a suit would depend on your success in the lawsuit and the ability of your employer to pay. Workers Comp Attorney NYC 10022
