What Benefits are Available to You From Workers Compensation?
New York’s worker’s compensation provides important rights and benefits, including:
100% of medical costs paid by your employer or its insurance carrier
Usually, the doctor of your own choice
A lost wage benefit up to a maximum rate
A cash benefit for a permanent injury or impairment in certain circumstances
Often a hearing before a Workers Compensation Board Law judge to address any disputed issues you may have with your employer or its insurance carrier
Do I Need a Lawyer to Help Me File a Workers Compensation Claim?
In recent years, the Workers’ Compensation Board has changed how it administers claims, often to the detriment of the injured worker. In the past, the Board automatically scheduled a hearing if a worker lost time from work or suffered a serious injury. Currently, the Board places the burden on the injured worker to prepare a case, obtain medical evidence of permanency, and request a hearing.
Compounding the issue, your interests and those of the insurance company who is to pay your workers compensation benefits aren’t the same. It is not unusual for a workers compensation insurance carrier to deny a valid claim outright, undervalue your benefits, or offer much less in terms of a payout settlement than that to which you are rightfully entitled, particularly if you have suffered a disability that is permanent in nature. All of this means that if you have been seriously injured, an experienced workers comp attorney can help make sure you navigate the system and get all the benefits to which you are entitled and deserve.
Let Our Experienced Firm Handle Your Claim

What to Do If You Are Injured at Work
Report the accident and/or injury to your employer as soon as possible. The employer must receive notice of the accident within 30 days.
Seek treatment from a physician. Your medical bills should be covered by the employer or insurance carrier if it is a work-related injury.
Be sure to tell the physician every part of your body that was injured to help document your claim.
Be sure to follow your doctor’s orders and return for treatment or physical therapy according to his orders. It is very important to have up-to-date medical reports available at the time of hearings and for all periods when you were unable to work.
