Work Injury Attorney
A work injury attorney at Lewis & Lewis, P.C. can help you determine what benefits you are entitled to following an injury at work. In New York State, you cannot sue your employer or a co-employee for negligence, even if it results in an injury to you. You may, however, be able to sue a co-employee for an intentional tort, if the co-employee intentionally causes you to be injured. Furthermore, there may be another responsible party, other than your employer or a co-employee, whose negligence caused your injury. For example, in a workplace motor-vehicle accident, another driver may be negligent for causing an injury, or in a workplace construction site accident, a property owner or general contractor may be liable for failing to provide proper safety equipment. Our experienced attorneys can review the facts of your specific case to determine whether or not you have a viable lawsuit. Even if a claim cannot be commenced against another party for your workplace accident, our work injury attorneys can assist you in obtaining any workers’ compensation benefits you are due.
If you have been injured at work, call Lewis & Lewis, P.C. today at (716) 854-2100 for a free consultation.
Satisfied Client Stories
”I liked Lewis & Lewis from the beginning when they helped me sort through all the paperwork-related to my injury. They really helped me get organized. But what really impressed me was when my Lewis & Lewis personal injury lawyer obtained thousands of dollars in workers’ compensation benefits that I didn’t even know I was entitled to. My attorney worked hard to get me paid.Fred T.Kenmore, NY - Steam Fitter
