Compensation for Sanitation Worker Injuries
Certain New York municipal employees, including garbage truck workers, are entitled to special benefits if they are injured in the line of duty or suffer from an occupational illness. To receive these benefits, which include medical care, compensation for lost wages and other benefits, you must prove that there was a direct causal relationship between your job duties and the illness or injury.
New York sanitation employees work in a hazardous environment in close proximity to dangerous equipment such as lifting arms and compactors. A serious injury could affect your health, your livelihood and your ability to earn a living.
To protect your rights to full compensation, it’s important to contact an attorney with a proven record of results in representing injured workers. Dankner Milstein, P.C., has significant experience helping injured workers receive all of the benefits they deserve. If your injury was the result of negligence, you may be entitled to additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the party that caused your injury.
