NYC Workplace Injury Lawyers

If you suffered a workplace injury, workers' compensation will pay your medical bills and a portion of your average weekly wage. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to receive additional compensation for costs that workers' compensation does not cover.

Full Compensation for Injured Workers

The 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. In some cases, these damages can be recovered through filing a third-party personal injury claim.

About Third-Party Claims

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.

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 in addition to workers' compensation.
