Providing Representation For Injured Workers

While New York's workers' compensation laws are meant to compensate workers injured on the job, such compensation is often inadequate to meet all of the injured workers' needs. Under such circumstances, it is important to have a lawyer on your side who understands every available avenue for compensation. This includes holding third parties liable for your injuries.

Our attorneys at Tinari, O'Connell & Osborn, LLP, in Central Islip have been helping injured workers recover all of the compensation due to them for over 30 years. This includes filing third-party lawsuits to hold responsible parties accountable for their negligence. We thoroughly investigate every case we handle, and we prepare each case for the possibility of going to trial.

How Work-Related Accidents Occur

Work-related accidents can be extremely devastating and sometimes even fatal. Such injuries can include:

  • Broken bones and amputations to limbs
  • Neck, back and spinal injuries
  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Severe burns and electrical shocks
  • Exposure to chemicals and other toxins

While many such injuries occur due to employers failing to take the proper safety precautions to protect their workers, many accidents occur due to the fault of someone besides the employer. Such injuries could occur due to the fault of a contractor at your place of employment. Injuries could also occur because a product or piece of equipment you were using was defective. Many work-related injuries even occur to construction workers on roadways due to the negligence of other drivers.

As the circumstances surrounding every work-related accident are different, it is important to have attorneys on your side who will locate the cause of your injury. We will explore every possible avenue for recovery. While we will attempt to obtain the most favorable settlement offer for you, we are always prepared to try your case in court when necessary.
