A workplace accident can be a worrying and distressing event for any worker, especially due to the severity of the injuries and the expenses that they may require in terms of medical care and recovery. But did you know that if you suffer an accident at your workplace, by law, you have the right to receive compensation?
At Nonna Shikh Law, you have the support of top-notch lawyers ready to help you achieve justice and ensure your financial recovery after suffering work-related injuries. With over 25 years defending the rights of New Yorkers, we know how to act in your favor and obtain the best settlements in labor cases.
Workers’ Compensation is a legal and insurance system designed to provide benefits to workers who are injured or become ill as a direct result of their employment.
Instead of relying on traditional civil lawsuits, where the employee would have to prove the employer’s negligence to receive compensation, the workers’ compensation system operates under a principle of “no-fault”. This means that, in most cases, the worker does not need to prove the employer’s fault or negligence to receive benefits.
Our legal team at Nonna Shikh, the best labor law firm in New York, is ready to provide legal advice and guide you on the right path to assert your rights and recover your injury expenses, even if the accident was caused by labor negligence.
In the workers’ compensation system, workers who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses can receive benefits that cover medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation.
Keep in mind that these benefits may vary depending on the nature of the injury and the characteristics of the case, so it is important that you always have the legal advice of accident lawyers.
Some of the expenses that Nonna Shikh Law can help you recover in cases of work-related injuries are:
Medical expenses: Covers the costs of necessary medical care to treat the work-related injury or illness. This may include medical visits, surgeries, medications, and rehabilitation therapies.
Lost wages: In case the magnitude of the injury you have suffered prevents you from working normally, workers’ compensation can provide a portion of lost wages during the recovery period.
Rehabilitation: When injuries are so severe that they require a rehabilitation process to regain mobility in some part of the body, workers’ compensation can cover the costs of physical, occupational, or vocational therapy to help you in your recovery process and return to work normally.
Disability: If the injury results in a temporary or permanent disability that affects your ability to work normally to earn a living, disability benefits can be granted that increase the value of your compensation.
Pain and suffering: In cases where injuries cause you intense pain that interferes with your daily life and work activities, even after receiving medical care, you deserve to receive an amount that covers pain and suffering expenses.
Work-related injuries can occur in almost any occupation, causing discomfort and complications that can significantly affect your ability to work and generate income normally. However, at Nonna Shikh Law, we are here to help you obtain the workers’ compensation you deserve.
