Workers' Comp Insurance Companies
Don't Let Insurance Companies Under-Compensate You
New York law requires virtually all employers to provide workers’ compensation coverage, and most businesses do so by purchasing insurance. That means, if you’re hurt on the job, the workers’ comp insurance company is in charge of covering your medical bills, including ambulance fees, hospitalization, physical therapy, and more, as well as other benefits like lost wages and vocational rehabilitation.
Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t have job injury victims’ best interests at heart. They know that an injured worker is vulnerable and just wants to get payments going. They’re used to downplaying or denying claims, “lowballing” the cost of an injury and using the system to save themselves money at the injured worker’s expense.
Don't let an insurance adjuster take advantage of your weakened state and pressure you into signing off on workers compensation benefits that under-compensate your for your work injury. They won't tell you that work injuries are often worth much more than they claim – and our relentless workers comp lawyers can fight to ensure that all your costs are covered.
New York workers’ compensation independent medical exams may downplay your job injuries
Insurance adjusters will do everything they can to minimize your injuries, so that they pay less. They may say that your pain is from preexisting injuries or conditions. They may also require you to get an “independent medical exam” to verify your work injuries. But that person is often anything but independent. The IME doctors are picked and paid directly by insurance companies to downplay the extent of your injuries to help them save money. It’s an adversarial system, and the deck is stacked against you – unless you have someone on your side who knows how to stand up for you.
That's where we come in. We will fight hard for your rights, so that you aren't manipulated or railroaded by an "IME" doctor working for your employer's insurer.
We know how to level the playing field when dealing with the workers’ comp insurance company
Again, New York law requires the vast majority of work injuries to be covered by workers’ comp, regardless of fault, but that doesn’t mean dealing with the insurance company is easy. For example, they may downplay the extent of your work injuries or argue that they weren’t really work-related. They may also dispute whether a particular medical treatment is “reasonable and necessary” for your injuries.
They know the system and how to make it work for them. We know how to make it work for you. We’ve been getting real results for injured New Yorkers for over 90 years, with billions recovered. We have the resources and experience to deal with the insurance company on your behalf while you focus on getting better.
