Can I Sue My Employer For A Workplace Injury?

If you were injured at a worksite in New York, your employer may have told you that your only source of benefits is New York workers' compensation. This may not be the case.

At The Joy E. Miserendino Law Firm, P.C., we file claims for injuries caused by unsafe work conditions under New York labor law 240. This law allows you to recover money damages beyond workers' compensation if you are injured under certain circumstances. If you were injured as the result of a dangerous condition where you work, call us at 716-854-1005 to schedule a free consultation. With offices in Buffalo and Dunkirk, we represent workers throughout upstate New York, including undocumented workers.

When Can I Sue For A Work Injury?

There are many circumstances when you can sue your employer, a property owner, another contractor or someone else for a work injury. The following are examples:

  • You were injured in a trip-and-fall accident due to debris on a walkway.
  • You were injured by a defective machine.
  • Your employer removed safety guards from a machine.
  • You were injured by objects dropped from an elevated worksite.
  • You fell from an unsafe scaffold.
  • Your employer violated Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations, and you were injured as a result.

Attorney Joy E. Miserendino will review your case and ensure that you receive all of the compensation you are due from all parties responsible for your injuries.
