As a highly competitive city with large, established companies, New York City offers excellent employment opportunities for everyone. However, as in any place with opportunity, you will find a multitude of workers who maintain this level of competitiveness day after day. Due to the diverse jobs to which workers are exposed, many of them develop work-related injuries over time that range from the simple back, shoulder, and leg pain all the way to severe psychological damage. Many employees do not know that they are eligible for compensation if they are suffering this type of injury. Here are some cases we have represented recently:
After working for 25 years as a maintenance employee, a worker developed work-related injuries in both wrists, as well as in his arms, shoulders, neck, and back. After working for 5 years as a cleaning service employee, a worker began to experience pain in her shoulders, neck, arms, and hands.
An employee worked for a year and a half performance heavy maintenance on irrigation pipes at a dairy farm and then began to develop significant job-related pain in his arms, shoulders, back, hands, legs, and chest. He reported his physical problems, but his employer completely ignored his request for medical attention. Feeling hopeless about his situation, and seeing the medical bills pile up, he decided to seek help.
After working for nearly 14 years for the same company, washing lenses with hot water, an employee developed arthritis in her hands. She reported her injuries but was ignored by her employer. Instead of offering medical treatment, the company fired her.
All of these individuals contacted Grupo MedLegal’s offices in New York and received legal support with free counsel, a specialized lawyer for their cases, and medical treatment for their work injuries.
