Workers' Compensation Claims
and Workplace Injuries in New York

Helping Injured Construction Workers Obtain Compensation After On-the-Job Accidents

The New York workers' compensation benefits program was designed to enable workers to quickly obtain the money they need following workplace injuries. Workers' compensation benefits do not provide a large, sweeping award for pain and suffering, or compensate workers for others' negligence. Instead, they cover basic necessities like:

  • Medical expenses
  • A portion of lost wages
  • Income following full or partial disability

If you were injured on the job, the attorneys of The Law Office of Estelle Roond can refer you to a New York workers' compensation attorney, and then help you pursue additional compensation through a Third Party Claim, when the facts of the case permit. Third-party claims:

  • Are like "regular lawsuits": they have no financial limits and typically exceed workers' compensation benefits in value
  • Can be filed against owners, subcontractors, contractors and other negligent parties (but not your employer)
  • Require the help of an experienced attorney

The Law Office of Estelle Roond and her Workers' Compensation Attorney Associates have handled numerous third-party personal injury claims for injured construction workers, recovering many millions of dollars on behalf of our clients. Contact us for a no-charge discussion and for counsel in the following legal areas:

  • Workers Compensation NY
  • Workers Compensation Law
  • Construction Industry Third-Party Claims

Don't Decide on a Course of Action without Knowledgeable Counsel

In New York, construction laws are very advantageous to injured worker plaintiffs, especially regarding injuries sustained by falls from scaffolding and ladders. Though it may seem like you don't have a case against a third party, or even if you think workers' compensation benefits will be sufficient, it makes sense to speak to an attorney to determine the full extent of your rights.

At The Law Office of Estelle Roond, we take all cases on a "contingent fee" basis. A contingent fee means that the attorneys are paid only at the time when, and if, they recover money damages for the client. A contingent fee thereby allows an injured person with little or no financial resources to obtain competent legal assistance. At the time recovery is obtained, the attorneys' fee is a percentage of the award in the case. If there is no recovery, there will be no attorneys' fees.*
