Options for Financial Recovery After Being Hurt on the Job

After suffering a work injury, you may have the right to recover workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ comp can provide you with benefits such as medical treatment and wage replacement.

In a personal injury claim, you can recover compensation for all your expenses and losses, including for your:

  • Medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • Costs of long-term care and support if you suffer permanent disabilities due to your injuries, including home health services, housekeeping and home maintenance, and medical/mobility equipment

White Plains Work Accident Lawyers Answer Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to file a personal injury claim if I can get workers’ compensation benefits?

Although you may be entitled to recover workers’ compensation benefits for a workplace injury, you can still benefit from filing a personal injury claim if you have claims against other parties. A personal injury claim can provide you compensation for losses that workers’ compensation benefits won’t cover, including portions of your lost income, loss of future earning potential, and pain and suffering.

What is the statute of limitations on personal injury claims?

In New York, you must file your personal injury lawsuit within three years of a work accident. You may lose your right to recover compensation if you file suit after the statute of limitations expires on your claim. Contacting a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident is critical to ensuring that you can timely file your claims.
