How a Workers' Comp Lawyer Can Help
We Can Help You Get a Higher New York Workers' Compensation Claim Settlement
When you are injured at work or realize you have a long-term workplace illness, it's your word against the insurance claim adjuster. From filing a workers' compensation claim to choosing a doctor to preparing for workers' compensation hearings, unless you have powerful legal representation, you will have to prove your injuries to all the authorities involved. Unfortunately, most of them are financially motivated to doubt you. Your boss and the insurance company will save money if they can prove that you're lying, and the so-called "Independent Medical Exam" doctor is hired by the insurance company, so they have a vested interest in downplaying your work injuries as well. Don't go it alone—let a workers' comp law firm with 90 years of experience fight for your rights!
