Get back on your feet with the help of Workers’ Compensation!
In the state of New York there is a fund that is allocated for those that become injured at work. This fund is managed by the Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB). Employers contribute to this fund as an insurance type investment, to cover the costs of any accidents that happen at work.
Let’s take a look at how to maneuver your way through the Workers’ Compensation system.
If you are injured due to something at work, you are eligible for Workers’ Compensation. It is designed to pay for your medical bills and cover your lost wages while you are recovering. These compensations are:
- The current cap of $966.78 is placed on the amount you can get of your lost wages per week. This was updated in New York on July 1, 2020. It can cover up to ⅔’s of your wages to that cap.
- You must file a claim within 30 days of the time the injury or the medical condition was diagnosed.
- You are entitled to reimbursement for reasonable out of pocket transportation expenses and medical care.
You may also secure benefits for unemployment insurance, vocational rehabilitation benefits, private disability, union benefits, and Social Security Disability Benefits.
The sooner you call and secure your New York Workers’ Compensation attorney the faster we can obtain the benefits you deserve. All of our consultations are free and under no obligation. We accept all cases on contingency, meaning we don’t get paid unless you do.
Overcoming the hurdles the agencies put in your way and get the benefits you are entitled to.
The systems are very confusing and can be frustrating to those that are not accustomed to them. Because of this, many claims are denied if requested on your own. You need an attorney to help you get the benefits you are entitled to and navigate the system for you. All the insurance companies have attorneys and will always deny claims or have low payouts unless you come armed with an attorney on your side.
We have advocated for injured workers for a combined 100 years. We understand what it takes. If you have been denied, you need to give us a call, and let’s see what we can do to change that decision. If this is your first time and you haven’t filed a claim but want to do it the right way the first time, welcome. We would be happy to take a look. We have gotten people:
- Permanent total disability
- Temporary total disability
- Permanent partial disability
- Temporary partial disability
Everyone is treated with the utmost respect and care. We understand that you are in a very sensitive time in life and come with your own set of problems and concerns. We will look at everyone on a case by case basis to determine what we can do to help. You can expect to be treated with dignity and respect at all times.
