Many builders risk their lives every day on dangerous scaffolds, ladders and roofs. Crews clean our venting systems and rid our buildings of hazardous materials to keep others safe and healthy. Many people work in overcrowded factories that are fire hazards or in restaurants for unfair and illegally low wages. At Bronnberg & Henriquez PC, we understand the important and dangerous role that the workers play in New York. This is why when a worker is injured, our attorneys provide the highest level of attention and respect.

If you have an accident at work:

  • Tell your employer within 30 days.

  • Go to the doctor or hospital and give a work accident history.

  • Contact a workers' compensation attorney.

Bronnberg & Henriquez PC will answer questions and create a strategy to manage any unexpected injury and loss of income. Our team consists of attorneys and paralegals who have assisted injured workers for decades. Our attorneys use a periodic review system combined with our knowledgeable, supportive and attentive team to represent our clients and obtain successful results.

Serious workplace injuries are far too common in the U.S. It is estimated that over 4,000 workers are killed on the job each year, and millions more suffer non-fatal but serious injuries. This is why compensation for medical care, including disability benefits and vocational rehabilitation, is available through the New York Workers' compensation system. It does not matter who is at fault for the injury.

At Bronnberg & Henriquez PC, we have decades of experience helping injured workers organize and locate the documents and evidence needed to support their claim and negotiate a settlement, and we offer legal representation for disputed claims.


Typical workplace injuries include:

  • Falls from heights

  • Slips or trips on uneven or slippery floors or stairs

  • Back injuries and muscle strains and tears

  • Carpal tunnel and other repetitive motion injuries

  • Machine crushing or entanglement

  • Motor vehicle accidents with a company car or while working

  • Falling objects or debris

  • On-the-job violent acts

  • Electrocution

  • Head injuries, including concussion, traumatic brain injury and wounds
