Helping Utility Workers Obtain Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Industries like cable companies, heating and cooling (HVAC) companies, telephone companies, landscapers, maintenance companies, natural gas companies, electric companies, water departments and all other utility-related companies rely upon workers every day to travel to various jobs to fix and maintain their operations.
These workers must follow strict safety guidelines, but accidents can still occur. When they do, injured workers are covered under workers’ compensation.
At Parisi & Gerlanc Attorneys At Law, we advocate on behalf of injured utility workers throughout Hackensack and Passaic County, making sure that they are provided all that they are entitled to.
Bergen County Utility Worker Injury Lawyers
Injuries suffered in the trades and utility work can range widely and include:
- Falls from telephone poles, ladders and trees
- Exposure to live lines
- Back injuries from lifting heavy appliances and machines
- Exposure to noxious gases
- Car accidents driving to and from jobs
- Broken bones
These injuries are all covered under workers’ compensation. We will work with you to ensure that you are provided maximum benefits for the injury you have suffered. In some cases, the injury may be the result of years of hard labor and repetitive stress. We have the medical background and understanding to help trace your pain to your job.
In some cases, a party other than your employer may be partly to blame for your accident. For instance, if you were involved in a car accident traveling between jobs and the other driver was to blame, the negligent driver can be held responsible. We will help you file any additional claims that might be available. These will proceed separate from your workers’ compensation claim and not cause any delays for it.
