Construction injuries might have multiple compensation options

Being hurt in a construction accident is a horrible event. Not only do you have to deal with the physical effects of being injured, you also have to deal with the financial aspects of the injury. While you won't be able to recover all of the wages you miss out on because of your accident, you might be able to recover some of your lost wages through workers' compensation. We know that having to determine how to fight for the coverage you need can be difficult when you are trying to recover from an accident. We can help you learn your options and explain the process.

The workers' compensation system in New York has a variety of benefits. Your medical care that is related to the accident will be covered through workers' compensation when your application for benefits is approved.

The cash benefits, which are two-thirds of your average pay times your disability percentage, are another benefit. This means that if your regular pay is $600 per week on average and you are 100 percent disabled, you would receive the equivalent of $400 per week for disability. If your disability was only 50 percent, you would get the equivalent of $200 per week from workers' compensation.

In some cases, you might be able to seek third-party compensation for your injury. This can often mean that you are able to recover more money. We can investigate your case to determine if you have any options for seeking compensation past filing for workers' compensation. We will help you every step of the way.
