NYC construction accidents: Who pays the medical bills?

We all know medical care is expensive, with most experts seeing no sign of things becoming more affordable. If you or one of your family members is injured on a construction job, who will pay your medical bills? Who will cover the lost income during recovery?

Construction accidents can cause serious and catastrophic injuries. Workers and their families know that medical costs may be covered by workers' compensation, but many are not sure about how to get the bills paid in the meantime. What should you do if you are dealing with the physical, emotional and financial aftermath of an accident?

An attorney can help you get the medical care you need

If you get hurt at work, you need proper medical care. The sooner you contact an experienced construction injury attorney, the sooner you can receive advice about other rights you may have, including a potential third-party claim. A third-party claim can provide additional benefits aside from workers' compensation coverage. You can also receive advice from your attorney about obtaining the workers' comp benefits to which you are entitled.

New York law provides numerous protections to workers who get hurt on the job. Your lawyer can be a valuable resource when it comes to your medical care, workers' comp, and other possible financial compensation.

Contact an attorney as soon as possible

Every work injury is different. Every case is different. It is important to get legal advice about medical costs if they are related to an injury that occurred on your job.

In general, construction injury attorneys provide a free, confidential consultation regarding these matters. There is no risk in talking to someone who may be able to help you and your family.
