NYC Workplace Injury Lawyers

Depending on the circumstances that led to your work injury, you may not be limited solely to workers' compensation benefits. You may have rights to additional compensation from a negligent "third party." That's where we can help. Call us to see whether we can obtain an additional recovery for your pain, suffering and other losses not covered by workers' compensation.

Full Compensation for Injured Workers

The Queens workplace injury attorneys of Chiariello & Chiariello represent clients who have sustained serious injuries in a workplace accident. Workman's comp does not pay injured workers for their pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, the full extent of their lost income and certain other damages. We may be able to help you recover these types of damages in a third-party claim. Contact our lawyers to learn more about our personal injury practice and for answers to your questions about workplace injuries.

About Third-Party Claims in New York

A successful personal injury claim is typically more financially beneficial to the injured person than workers' compensation. However, not every injured worker can file a personal injury claim. To be eligible, your injury must have been caused by a third party — someone other than you, your co-worker or your employer. For example:

  • If you were driving a car as part of your job and were injured in a car accident, we could file a claim against the driver of the vehicle that hit you.
  • If you were injured in an industrial accident caused by a defective machine, we may be able to collect damages from the maker of the dangerous equipment.
  • If you were injured by another contractor's worker at the same work site.
  • If you were delivering something to a warehouse, manufacturing facility or construction site and you were injured.

Each case is different and needs to be examined by an experienced lawyer. You can trust our family-owned law firm to tell you directly whether or not you are eligible to pursue damages through a third-party claim in addition to the benefits you receive through workers' compensation.
