Long Island Work Injury Compensation

Many Factors Impact Your Long Island Work Injury Case Value

One of your first questions about pursuing work injury compensation is likely, “How much money can I recover?” You need to attend a free consultation with a work injury attorney in Long Island to get an idea of your case value. However, it helps to understand how work injury compensation is calculated.

Your injury compensation can cover costs such as:

  • Past, present, and future medical bills
  • Occupational and physical therapist costs
  • Specialist costs
  • Medical device costs
  • Lost wages and benefits.

Workers’ compensation doesn’t cover non-economic damages. However, you may be able to recover damages for things like pain and suffering, emotional anguish, and diminished quality of life if you qualify for a personal injury or product liability claim.

Liability for a Long Island Work Injury

Work Injury Cases Are Often Complicated

Recovering the Long Island work injury compensation you need can be a challenge. Most New York workers only qualify for workers’ compensation coverage if they are employees. However, injured construction workers may be able to obtain workers’ work coverage, even if they are contract workers.

If you are eligible for workers’ comp, policy limits mean that the full costs of your injuries might not be covered. This is a particular risk in cases involving catastrophic injury, such as a spinal cord injury or a severe burn injury. If you aren’t eligible for worker’s comp, you’ll need a personal injury lawyer to identify whether you have grounds for filing a personal injury claim or, depending on how you were injured, a product liability claim.

Wondering whether you qualify for work injury compensation? Don’t wait to ask for help. Call Tucker Lawyers today at (516) 399-2364 to schedule your free consultation with a Long Island work injury attorney.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most common questions new clients ask our Long Island work injury attorneys.

Do I need a work injury attorney to recover compensation?

When you’re injured on the job in Long Island, you should always take the time to consult a work injury attorney. In most cases, a lawyer can strengthen your case and fight to increase the work injury compensation you recover.

Can a work injury attorney help if my loved one dies as a result of an accident at work?

If a work injury resulted in the death of a spouse, child, or parent, a work injury lawyer may be able to help you recover wrongful death compensation. This can provide you with compensation for funeral and burial expenses, as well as reimburse you for the loss of anticipated wages and any medical debt incurred before death.

How long does it take to recover work injury compensation?

It’s hard to predict how long it will take to recover compensation for a work injury. Many factors impact the time frame, including whether compensation is obtained through workers’ comp or a personal injury claim and whether the case settles or goes to court. The extent of injuries and long-term impact on physical health also influence how long it takes to arrive at a settlement or verdict.

How much compensation can a Long Island work injury lawyer help me recover?

Compensation is unique in every work injury case. Typically, compensation should cover both current and long-term medical expenses and a portion of the injured worker’s lost wages. A work injury attorney can give you an idea of your case value during a free consultation.
