No one goes into work with the intention of getting hurt. Unfortunately, workplace injuries are common regardless of the type of industry you work in. Whether you’ve been injured through a slip and fall in the office or fell from a scaffolding on a Bronx construction site, workplace injuries can not only take a physical toll on you, but a financial one as well. This is why if you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, you need the right workers’ compensation attorney in Bronx, NY by your side to help ensure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries.

The experienced workers’ compensation lawyers at Proner & Proner have been fighting for injured victims in The Bronx and other parts of New York to help garner the compensation and medical care they deserve while assisting with third party liability claims.
Each state has a different set of policies and regulations when it comes to handling workers’ compensation claims.
