Experienced Workers' Compensation Attorneys Serving Woodbury

When you are injured on the job, you generally have a right to compensation. Almost all employers must by law carry workers' compensation insurance, and it should cover your medical bills, lost wages, etc. after an accident.

Of course, the rules of workers' compensation can get complicated. And insurance companies can confuse you further to try to avoid paying what they owe.

Act Right Away

After they are injured, many people try to tough it out for a while and "hope it goes away". But this can later be interpreted as proof that you never had an injury to begin with. It is thus very important to act right away, as soon as you know you have suffered an on-the-job injury.

You must give notice to your employer first, and in timely fashion. You must give your employer a chance to do the right thing. But if they refuse to help, or give you the run-around, get a qualified lawyer on your side.

Do You Qualify?

At the Law Office of Thomas B. Schway, we can help you figure out if your injury qualifies under workers' compensation. Qualifying cases can involve any number of issues, including:

  • Falling objects
  • Faulty equipment
  • Repetitive stress injuries (tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals
  • Explosions
  • Electrocutions
  • Construction site injuries
  • Auto accidents while on-the-job

As long as the injury happened in the course of your duties, you can probably get compensation. In fact, if the accident was caused, even in part, by someone besides your employer, such as another contractor, you could have a third-party lawsuit — these are common after construction site injuries or motor vehicle accidents while on the job.
