Disease Claims and Occupational injuries claims assistance

New York’s Workers’ Compensation will cover any injury or illness that is related to work activities.  This is a no-fault system that assists people in paying their medical bills and making ends meet during this difficult time.  This may sound pretty simple and straightforward.  However, if you attempt to file a claim on your own, you will most likely be denied.  Insurance companies understand that people that file their own claims are clueless to what they are entitled to.  Remember, they want to pay out as little as possible.

Savino & Smollar, P.C. have been filing occupational injury claims since the 1950s.  We are focused on advocating for the injured workforce of New York. If you find yourself with severe back pain or injured because of repetitive motion, you are entitled to compensation.  We have an encyclopedic understanding of the New York Workers’ Compensation system.  Because of this extensive knowledge of the inner workings we navigate the system with ease.  Insurance companies don’t like you getting an attorney that cares, as they know you mean business.  We understand the system so well, that we will avoid denial of claims and pitfalls that may delay the overall results.  

You are to notify your employer within 30 days should you find yourself in a work-related injury or disease.  The next step is to file a claim with the Workers’ Compensation Board, however, this is just the beginning.  In order to secure the compensation that you are entitled to, you need to contact our lawyers.  We will work hard to navigate the system and actually obtain what you are entitled to.

A doctor will evaluate you to determine the extent of your condition.  While you might have your own doctor, the insurance company can request that you see their doctor compare the findings.  Of course, their doctor works for them and often has different findings than your doctors.  

This is the level of complexity that some of these cases are.  Our attorneys are there for you to lean on and ask for guidance and support every step of the way.  We have a combined experience of over 100 years and are ready to use that experience for you.  We do not fear powerful insurance companies as we know the law and understand their tactics.
