Corona, NY Construction Accident Lawyer

Skilled Construction Accident Lawyers Protect The Rights Of Corona, NY Residents Injured In Construction Accidents 

Construction work, by nature, is hazardous. Operating heavy machinery, working in deep trenches well below ground level, or working while hoisted on scaffolding several stories high are all part of the job of a construction worker. Serious risk of injury is inherent in this work and that is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a division of the Department of Labor, establishes safety standards for construction work. But in spite of those safety standards, construction injuries are a regular occurrence.

What Type Of Workers’ Compensation Benefits Can I Receive For My Construction Accident in New York?

Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to assist workers with their recovery from a work-related injury or illness. Construction accidents may result in serious injury resulting in hospitalization, surgery, and lost wages. In New York, workers are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits that include the following:

  • Medical benefits: workers may receive coverage for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment that results from a workplace injury. In order to receive medical benefits, the health care provider must be an authorized provider 
  • Temporary disability benefits: when a worker has been injured on the job and must  take more than seven days off of work to recover, the injured worker may receive monetary benefits. These benefits are intended to replace part of the wages that are lost due to the injury. Temporary disability benefits will not be received for the first seven days unless the worker ends up off of work for more than fourteen days
  • Permanent partial disability benefits: when a worker has sustained a workplace injury that results in partial disability, New York’s workers’ compensation laws provide benefits. These benefits are based on a predetermined schedule and vary depending upon the specific body part that has been affected
  • Permanent total disability benefits: in some cases, it is determined that an injured worker’s injury or illness will not improve with additional treatment. In these situations, the worker is then evaluated by an authorized physician who will determine if the injury has resulted in permanent limitations. While permanent total disability often means that the worker is unable to work at all because of the limitations, with certain types of disabilities, the worker may be able to earn a limited amount of money without losing their disability benefits

Frequently Asked Questions About Corona, NY Construction Accident Claims

FAQ: What happens if I don’t file my construction accident claim before the deadline runs out?

Legal deadlines for filing claims in the civil courts are known as “statutes of limitations”. In New York, the statute of limitations for filing a workers’ compensation claim is two years from the date the workplace injury occurred, or two years from the last payment of compensation, whichever is later. Except in rare circumstances, if you do not file your construction accident claim before this two-year window runs out, the court will refuse to hear your case and you will have lost your opportunity to recover any compensation for your injuries.

FAQ: I was injured in a construction accident but I am afraid to file a workers’ compensation claim — won’t my employer punish me for filing the claim?

Workers’ compensation laws provide that employers may not fire, punish, or in any way retaliate against any employee who files a workers’ compensation claim. When you file a workers’ compensation claim, you relinquish the right to file a lawsuit against your employer or any of your co-workers for any additional compensation.
