In a new video FAQ, attorney Michael Rose discusses your rights when it comes to reporting an injury or for filing a lawsuit over an injury that occurred while on the job. People are often concerned that their employer may choose to fire them for filing a lawsuit, but as attorney Rose points out, this should not be a concern. There are protections in place for injured workers in New York, and if you’ve been hurt in an accident, you have the right to take legal action without fear of retaliation from your employer.
If you or someone close to you has been hurt in a construction accident, you have the right to seek compensation from your employer’s workers’ comp policy. If they wrongly deny your claim or choose to offer you less than what you should be paid to cover your medical bills and other expenses, an experienced attorney may be able to help you secure the compensation that you need.
