Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Tonawanda, NY

Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Tonawanda, NY

Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Tonawanda, NY- man putting bandage on coworkerIf you were engaged in work-related activity when you recently suffered injury or were made ill, it is important to schedule a risk-free consultation with a Tonawanda, NY workers’ compensation lawyer at Hurwitz, Whitcher, & Molloy as quickly as you possibly can. Most other areas of the law are somewhat time sensitive. However, securing workers’ compensation benefits is an unusually time-sensitive process and if you don’t act quickly, you may be barred from pursuing the compensation to which you would otherwise be entitled.

If you are unsure of whether you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, the legal team at Hurwitz, Whitcher, & Molloy can clarify your eligibility status for you. Most of the time, it is only full-time and part-time employees who are eligible for these benefits, but there are exceptions made for individuals whose employment status has been misclassified. Additionally, some full-time and part-time employees of very small companies and specialty industries are ineligible for this coverage. As a result, seeking clarification about your eligibility status is advised if you are unsure of it.

Can I Also Sue My Employer for the Harm I Have Suffered?

The “tradeoff” for the no-fault nature of the workers’ compensation system is that while employees are granted benefits connected with their work-related harm regardless of how it was caused, employers are insulated from the threat of legal challenges. Meaning, that if you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you may sue others who have contributed to the cause(s) of your harm, but you may not sue your employer. Your employer is exempt from legal liability where your work-related harm is concerned.

With that said, the experienced Tonawanda, NY workers’ compensation lawyer team at our firm can help you to both secure a fairly valued workers’ compensation benefit award and explore whether you may be entitled to other kinds of compensation at this time. For example, if your injuries occurred as a result of intentional wrongdoing by another, you may be entitled to crime victim compensation. If a faulty part of a machine led to your injuries, you may be able to sue the manufacturer of that part for damages. If a motorist struck you while you were working, you may be entitled to an insurance settlement, etc. Whatever your circumstances may be, our firm is here to protect your interests to the fullest extent allowable under the law.

Legal Assistance Is Available

Although you can technically submit a workers’ compensation claim without legal guidance, it is advisable to schedule a risk-free consultation with the experienced New York legal team at Hurwitz, Whitcher, & Molloy before doing so. Your legal situation may be more complex than you have been led to believe and having experienced legal advocates available to answer your questions is an opportunity worth embracing. Our workers’ compensation lawyer Tonawanda, NY team takes great pride in representing the interests of injured workers and we look forward to speaking with you about your situation.
