Have a Workers Compensation Injury in Brooklyn?

Talk With an Experienced Brooklyn Workers Compensation Attorney

Generally, workers compensation benefits are available for any work-related injury. However, there are certain exceptions to this rule, and, because of this, it is often helpful to have an attorney assist you in the process of applying for workers compensation. At the Law Office of David Kuznicki, we have experience helping our clients with their workers compensation claims. We represent primarily working class individuals who have been injured on the job, and we make it our goal to get you the benefits you need to continue supporting your family while you recover from your injuries. Our policy is to only represent those clients who have valid claims, and this has built credibility within the local court system. We use this credibility to our advantage in each of our cases.

Types of Injuries Commonly Covered by Workers Compensation

Workers compensation provides benefits for most injuries resulting from on-the-job accidents. Such injuries may include:

  • Falls from scaffolding
  • Construction accident injuries
  • Burns from fires and explosions
  • Broken bones and other injuries resulting from faulty equipment
  • Back and neck injuries from lifting and carrying heavy items

Additionally, workers compensation covers injuries that result from overuse or misuse of muscles over a period of time, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, back problems and injuries resulting from occupational hazards such as asbestos-related lung disease and work- and stress-related heart conditions.

Injuries Not Covered by Workers Compensation

Workers compensation covers most on-the-job injuries. However, it does not usually cover injuries caused solely by the injured employee’s intoxication or illegal drug use.

Because the types of injuries covered often depend on the circumstances surrounding each individual situation, it is important that you consult with a Brooklyn workers compensation attorney if you think you may be eligible for workers compensation. At the Law Office of David Kuznicki, we have vast experience and a strong reputation that helps us get our clients the benefits they are entitled to receive.

If you have suffered an on-the-job injury and think you may be entitled to workers compensation, contact a Brooklyn workers comp lawyer at our firm today.
