You May Be Able To File A Personal Injury Claim As Well
At Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., workers’ compensation is not a part of a larger practice. We focus solely on protecting the rights of injured workers dealing with not only pain and suffering, but also an uncertain future. They may be unable to return to work immediately or the physical damage they suffered resulted in disabilities.
How To Hold Third Parties Accountable For Work Accidents
Under New York law, employers or employees cannot be sued for work-related injuries, even if negligence is involved. However, the actions of a third-party at the workplace or driving in their vehicle can be held responsible. When an accident occurs on a job site, a workers’ compensation claim is often the result. However, an additional injury claim can be filed when employers or employees are not involved in an accident causing injury.
At Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., we represent clients in third-party claims that arise from an outside party who created a hazard at a workplace that led to serious injuries to an employee. A vendor, equipment maintenance technician or the operator of a car sharing the road with a delivery driver can cause serious injuries to a worker unaware of a hazard or collision. In a split second, a career or a life could be at an end.
Handling multiple injury claims requires an attorney who combines experience with attention to all details. Third-party claims run concurrent with workers’ compensation claims. In some more traumatic injury cases, a Social Security Disability claim is necessary to compensate a client who can no longer work due to injuries.
