Not all work-related accidents take place at the job site. Under New York workers' compensation law, you are eligible for benefits if your injury took place "during the course of employment." This does not include coming and going to work, but a wide range of other situations apply.
At Dennis Kenny Law, we have extensive experience handling offsite accident claims for people throughout New York. Whether you were injured in a work-related car accident, at a hotel while traveling for your job or in any other offsite accident, we will work hard to help you get the workers' compensation benefits you need and deserve.
Legal Representation In Work-Related Accidents
If you have been injured in an offsite workplace accident, it is important to have an experienced workers' compensation attorney on your side. Your employer may claim you were not performing work-related activities while your accident occurred. They may try to limit, delay or outright deny your benefits. We know how to counter these tactics to help injured workers get the compensation they need and deserve.
We have extensive experience handling workers' compensation claims and appeals for injured workers throughout the region, including cases involving:
- Motor vehicle crashes and car accidents
- Backhoe mishaps
- Truck crashes
- SUV rollover injuries and fatalities
- Pedestrian injuries
- Dump truck incidents
- Injuries due to drunk driving
- Forklift incidents
If you have been injured while performing your job duties, it is important to fully explore your legal options. If your injury leaves you disabled, you may pursue additional compensation by fling a Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claim. If your injury was the result of a negligent third party (not your employer,) you may file a personal injury suit. Our lawyers will carefully review your situation with you to help you take full advantage of the legal resources available to you. If a personal injury lawsuit could provide further relief, we work as co-counsel with other trusted law firms to pursue those cases.
