I was struck by one of the poles from a scaffolding outside of the place I work. This happened in April of 2008. I have an open workers comp case as I was clocked in and on the job at the time of the accident. I am employed by NYC Limos Car Service. This accident happened in NYC. The pole hit my right shoulder fracturing that bone and creating a deep laceration down my right side. I mean I have many medical claims stemming from this accident and I am barely make ends meet with the provision from Workers Comp. I am now worrying about when workers comp cuts me off as they are starting to give me problems. I would like to know if I can seek relief from somewhere else am I entitle to any other damages.
Workers must report their injuries within 30 days of the accident, according to New York law. Workers have up to two years to file a claim if an injury has caused other damage
