Maximize your workers' compensation benefits

You may have heard the phrase workers’ compensation, and you may even have a general understanding of what the phrase means, but when you truly need to take advantage of your workers’ compensation benefits, you will need to have an intricate understanding in order to maximize those benefits. If you were injured in a workplace accident, you are likely eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, regardless of the circumstances surrounding the accident. Obviously each case is different, but as we’ve explained before, nearly every work-related injury is compensable.

Insurance companies know that they will almost always be required to cover your workers’ compensation needs, which is why they sometimes make offers to settle cases before injured workers even make a claim. If you have been injured in a workplace accident, it is highly advisable that you meet with an attorney to discuss your case so that you get the maximum compensation you deserve, not the compensation that the insurance company thinks you deserve.

This has become even more true in New York following recent changes that place a cap on the benefits that injured workers can receive. Now, the severity of your injury determines the maximum amount of compensation that you are eligible to receive, which could affect how much insurance companies offer you. Unfortunately, some injuries may be more severe than they first appear, or they could grow worse with complications.

If you have been injured in a workplace accident, it is highly advisable to discuss the circumstances of your case with an attorney.
