Most injured workers do not know, nor would their employers voluntarily divulge this information to them, that the Workers’ Compensation Board is not the only place an injured worker can turn to for compensation after a debilitating injury. Workers’ Compensation prevents a worker from bringing a personal injury claim against his or her employer but that does not mean that the worker cannot make a claim for lost wages and medical expenses they incurred as a result of an injury on the job.Some notable victories from Dervishi Law Group, P.C:
- $165,000.00: A worker fell from a ladder, injuring his neck.
- $160,000.00: A worker sustained an injury when a cellar door closed on his foot.
- $2,900,000.00: A janitorial worker sustained an injury when an air conditioner fell on his head.
- $280,000.00: A home health aide injured her wrist when a window closed too fast.
Furthermore, Workers’ Compensation does not block a lawsuit for injuries against third parties. We will investigate whether any negligence was caused by a third party — a personal company, which is not the worker’s employer. Determining whether your injury was caused by a third party can be tricky because there are complicated New York rules of what is defined as ’employment’. Feel free to contact Dervishi Law Group, P.C., and work with an attorney to determine if your Workers’ Compensation claim is your only source of compensation.
The legal team of Morgan Levine Dolan, P.C. and Fatos Dervishi have won a $4 million settlement from an insurance company for a union construction worker. The worker had suffered serious injuries to his foot, ankle, and knee. It was determined that the construction worker needed surgery and would not be able to return to construction work. The legal team pushed the insurance company right up to the trial deadline, at which point the insurance company relented and agreed to the settlement. Luckily the construction worker hired the right legal team to represent him. This gave him peace of mind to be able to provide for his wife and 14 month old son for the rest of their lives.If you have been injured in an accident make sure you have a winning lawyer on your side.
