New Jersey and New York workers compensation insurance programs are meant to protect injured workers. However, like all types of insurance providers, workers comp wants to pay each claimant as little as possible for their injuries.
Each New York construction accident attorney and New Jersey construction accident attorney at Hofmann & Schweitzer disagrees with that way of thinking.
Our New York City construction injury attorneys believe that injured construction workers should receive fair compensation for their injuries. To that end, we encourage all injured construction workers to do the following:
- Promptly report their injury to their employer.
- Gather evidence from the accident scene. Take pictures if you can, noting the name and phone numbers of any witnesses and writing down details of what happened immediately prior to and during the accident.
- Call the New Jersey and New York construction accident injury lawyers of Hofmann & Schweitzer.
Our lawyers will walk you through all of the steps that you need to take to preserve your workers comp claim, and we will fight hard for your just recovery.
