Workers Compensation Benefits
Fair Workers Compensation Benefits Are Not Guaranteed—But Our Workers Comp Lawyers in New York Fight For Justice
Though your boss or the company’s workers comp insurance carrier might tell you differently, the New York State workers compensation law provides lifetime medical care for any workplace injuries and occupational diseases you suffer. In addition, if you were injured at work, you are entitled to receive reimbursement for incidental medical expenses such as prescriptions, bandages and transportation expenses to and from medical providers. Any lost wages and hourly claims due to temporary or permanent disability are also covered, and we are well-versed in representing union members as well.
An Experienced New York Workers Comp Lawyer Can Help Ensure a Better Settlement
If you were hurt on the job, you can receive two thirds of your salary up to the maximum applicable benefit for total disability. Partial disability is based upon your wages, ability to work and transferable skills. Despite the law, injured New York employees get the run-around all the time, and are often pressured to sign off on “low-ball” offers by workers comp insurance companies. It all gets down to how carefully your case is managed, from filing a workers compensation claim to how well you document your work injuries and choosing a doctor.
Don’t Let Workers Comp Insurer Under-Compensate You—Let Us Defend Your Rights
Workers compensation settlement payments are based on many factors:
• The type of work injury you suffered
• The doctors’ evaluation
• Your expected recovery period
• Treatment therapies required
• Vocational rehabilitation needed
• Your lawyer’s workers compensation experience
• If you are unable return to work
• If you are temporarily disabled
• If you are permanently disabled
• How your personal life is affected
Remember, the initial offer insurance adjusters make is usually far lower than what they’ll actually give you in order to avoid going to trial. Sometimes you’ll have to deal with a denied workers compensation claim because they don’t believe you were hurt at work or will argue that you have no case because your boss hasn’t broken OSHA laws. With relentless workers compensation attorneys like us by your side, you won’t be left hanging in the wind—you could end up with a settlement in the millions, whether you live in Westchester, Williamsburg, Staten Island or Southampton.
