Brooklyn Workers Compensation Lawyer
Hurt at Work in Brooklyn? Call a Tough Workers Compensation Lawyer To Fight For Your Rights!
For over 80 years, we've been fighting for the rights of job injury victims who are unable to work or have pain and limited mobility because of job injuries and illnesses. These may include catastrophic construction site injuries, such as forklift and crane accident injuries, or hospital worker injuries, repetitive stress syndrome and job-related heart attacks. We also handle civil service disability pension claims for New York state, city and municipal employees, and we represent union members who were injured at work.
Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP is comprised of seasoned, trusted workers compensation attorneys in Brooklyn who work hard for every cent of workers compensation payments that our clients deserve. If you were injured in a workplace accident or have one of the many long-term workplace illnesses or occupational diseases that New Yorkers can get, including mesothelioma from exposure to asbestos, tunnel digger silicosis, workplace cancer or work-related back injury, we will help get you back on track, financially, physically and emotionally. In nearly every workers comp case, the first low-ball offer clients are pressured by insurance adjusters to accept is much lower than the number they'll eventually reach, in order to avoid having to face us in court.

- Help you file an appeal – If your claim is denied, we can help you prepare for hearings, gather additional evidence, and present your case before an administrative law judge.
- Represent your interests – If your case proceeds to a formal hearing, one of our attorneys will present your case before the workers' compensation board or court. They will present arguments, interview witnesses, and ensure that your case is effectively presented.
