Strong Attorneys For Injured Workers
Injuries suffered on the job can be devastating, impacting your entire life, as well as your ability to work. If you have been hurt or injured in a workplace injury, you need an advocate on your side to ensure that you are provided the benefits to which you are entitled.
At Hobika Law Firm, we represent individuals throughout New York in workers’ compensation and related claims, ensuring that our clients are provided the full extent of benefits that they deserve and need.
What Work Comp Benefits Are You Eligible For?
Workers’ compensation laws state that if you are injured on the job, it doesn’t matter whether you, your employer or another co-worker was to blame; you are entitled to compensation for your job-related injury. You cannot sue your employer or company. Instead you will be provided benefits through workers’ compensation.
To do this, you must submit a claim, showing that your injury, disability or pain resulted from your job. While this was meant to be a straight-forward process that protected employees, there can be complications in the claims process. You may see a doctor who downplays your injury, resulting in an insufficient claim.
How Our Lawyers Advocate On Your Behalf
We will fight on your behalf, seeking second opinions and medical records that prove the extent of your injury. Our attorneys are devoted to workers’ compensation and ensuring that our clients are provided all that they are entitled to under the statute.
We also evaluate the case to determine if you are eligible for additional personal injury or Social Security Disability claims. Personal injury claims are only available if a third party, such as a contractor, manufacturer, vendor, or someone other than your employer or co-workers, is partly responsible for the accident.
Industrial Accidents And Injuries On Construction Sites
Industrial, manufacturing and construction sites can be dangerous places. Our firm routinely represents people suffering injuries from these industries, including workplace falls, crushing, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, back and neck injuries, and other pain.
Commercial Vehicle Drivers And Truck Drivers
Those operating commercial vehicles are on the road for an extended period of time and are at risk to be involved in car accidents. While there are obvious workers’ compensation claims, as the accident happened on the job, there may also be personal injury claims available, too, against a negligent driver who caused the accident.
Repetitive Stress And Occupational Illness
Not all workplace injuries result from dramatic falls or accidents. Many workers suffer from chronic pain resulting from years of repetitive motions, such as typing or assembly line work. This can include carpal tunnel syndrome and back problems.
