New York firm standing up for injured construction workers

Despite advances in workplace safety and construction technology, New Yorkers continue to be injured on the job. Whether a pure accident or caused by the negligence of another, a workplace accident can leave an individual not only with serious physical injuries, but also with financial losses that can leave him or her struggling to make ends meet. Although workers' compensation may be available to help cover these financial losses, sometimes these claims are denied, and often they don't cover the full extent of one's losses.

When either of these situations arise, it may be time to take additional legal action. A denied workers' compensation claim can be appealed. Even a denied initial appeal can be appealed. In pursuing a workers' compensation appeal, an individual should be sure to gather any supporting documentation and witnesses to buttress their claim. They also need to be ready to present convincing legal arguments.

The same holds true for filing a lawsuit against a third party for injuries suffered while on the job. Although many of these cases settle before going to trial, injured workers need to start off aggressive with the impression that the matter will be litigated.

At Chiariello & Chiariello, our team of compassionate, dedicated, and aggressive attorneys know how both the workers' compensation and personal injury systems work. We know how the other side will try to defend itself, meaning that we are often able to prepare our clients' claims to not only present their side of the story, but draw the other side's into question. This takes a deep understanding of the law, the rules of evidence, the trial rules, and legal advocacy. Our team stands by its record of success representing clients in construction accident cases, so we encourage those who are interested to visit the rest of our website for more information.
