New York City Workplace Injury Attorney
Representing clients after accidents on the job in NYC
The Law Offices of Jonathan D. Sands has represented many clients for job-related injuries. Whether you are employed in the construction industry, in an office, or any other type of job, you are at some degree of risk for a serious injury. Whatever your position and whatever the accident, nearly all of us are covered by workers’ compensation, a form of insurance that protects us from mounting medical bills. It also insulates our employers from negligence lawsuits brought by us for our injuries. Although we cannot sue our employers for our injuries, we may be able to sue third-parties if they have responsibility for our injuries. You should contact an attorney to assess your case, guide you through your legal options, and effectively represent your interests in and out of court. Contact the Law Offices of Jonathan D.

Those who work in the construction industry have dangerous jobs that have the potential to cause significant harm. Construction workers are faced with peril almost everywhere they turn. Some employees work both under objects that have the potential to fall and high above the ground where a tumble would lead to serious injury or even death.
Employees across the nation have jobs with varying degrees of danger. One thing that is consistent throughout is that all workers are at risk of a workplace injury in some way or another. Though employers and fellow employees take all the necessary care to protect each other, accidents do happen. Fortunately, workers’ compensation insurance is in place to support those who are injured on the job.
