Getting the most from your workers' comp benefits

Workers’ compensation has become an extremely common employee benefit, and it has provided a safety cushion for many employees since nearly all work-related injuries qualify for the benefits. Workers’ comp exists to take care of employees who suffer health concerns due to work-related issues, including medical treatment and rehabilitation. However, since employers don’t want to throw money around carelessly, a workers’ compensation claim can still turn into an extensive legal process.

Part of this legal process is determining how much compensation an injured worker is entitled to. In recent years, new laws have gone into effect in New York that influence how much compensation is awarded to injured workers, which include a cap on benefits relative to how severe your injury is. Because the severity of your injury now affects the maximum amount of compensation you can receive, the importance of successfully proving the extent of your injuries cannot be overstated. It is in the best interests of injured workers to fully explore the extent of their injuries so that they are eligible to receive the compensation they need.

Because there are laws that affect your eligibility for compensation, it behooves you to enlist the aid of an attorney who has experience with workers’ compensation laws, particularly New York workers’ compensation laws. Our law firm has just such experience, and we can help you prove how severe your injuries are so that you can get the compensation you deserve.
