Workers Compensation Hearings
Hearings Are Intimidating-Get a Tough Workers Comp Attorney On Your Side
If you are dealing with a denied workers compensation claim, have had payments cut off or are disputing with workers compensation insurance companies, you will most likely have to go through a workers compensation hearing. Unless you have an experienced, determined lawyer by your side, it'll be your word against an Administrative Law Judge, the doctor and the insurance adjuster. Without powerful legal representation, you could end up with either no benefits or an unfair, "low-ball" settlement that will not cover your medical bills, any needed vocational rehabilitation or lost wage and hours claims.
The New York Workers Compensation Appeals Process Is Complicated and We Can Help
After a hearing, if either side disagrees with the Judge's decision, several legal options are available. They can appeal to the state Workers Compensation Board and further appeals of law are allowed to the Appellate Division and thereafter, if accepted for review, to the Court of Appeals. Plenty of lawyers say they know workers compensation law, but unless you have an attorney with years of trial experience, your work injuries could become debilitating. You could be out of work for a long time, with no workers comp payments or treatment in sight.
