This subspecialty of law addresses accidents that occur during the course of a person’s employment. A personal injury case for negligence against the offending parties may be brought in addition to an employee filing a workers’ compensation claim, and are known as third-party lawsuits. Compensation in the personal injury lawsuit includes pain and suffering for the injuries sustained, which is not recoverable in workers’ compensation claims. We are currently handling cases that involve a telephone worker’s trip and fall in an office due to frayed carpeting, a delivery worker’s fall from a defective loading dock, and an ambulance driver’s slip and fall resulting from a building owner’s negligence in failing to properly clear snow and ice from the building’s premises.
Our NYC personal injury lawyers have successfully obtained monetary compensation for a victim’s physical and psychological injuries sustained as a result of workplace accidents.
