Injuries on construction sites in the Bronx are common. Construction workers often get shoulder and knee injuries. In addition to accidents, constant strain can also affect your shoulders, knees or joints. These injuries may become serious and last for long time. Not only this, these injuries require extensive medical care and can force you to stay out of work.
Under New York personal injury law, a person must suffer a “threshold injury” in order to sue another party for damages. The definition of the serious injury threshold in the statute specifically mentions injury to tendons, ligaments, cartilage, muscles and nerves. If you have suffered a knee or shoulder injury on the job, you are eligible to apply for workers’ compensation benefits that will pay for medical expenses and time away from work. Proper diagnosis of your injuries can also give you more time to build a stronger case for workers’ compensation benefits.
If you sustained a shoulder, knee or joint injury in the course of your employment, you should contact an experienced Bronx personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
