We can help you maximize your workers' comp benefits

For many people, workers’ compensation benefits are the most important part of any job. Even if you do not ever need to take advantage of them, the safety net that these benefits provide allows employees to perform their jobs without the fear that they will be left to their own devices in the event of an accident. This is especially true for people who work in dangerous occupations, such as construction workers and firefighters, but even jobs that are relatively low-risk could have unexpected adverse health effects.

We have previously mentioned how workers’ comp benefits can extend to workplace illnesses and diseases, but there is much more to making a claim than you might think. Knowing is only half of the battle. If you believe you have suffered from an occupational illness, it is in your best interests to consult with an attorney, even if the insurance company makes an offer. Your benefits may have a cap in New York, but that cap may be significantly higher than the offer the insurance company makes.

Even more important than proving the severity of your illness is determining how the illness came about. While it is true that the cap on your benefits could be raised depending on the severity of the illness, you could be entitled to even more compensation if your illness was caused by the negligence of a third party, one which was not your employer or fellow employee.

If this all sounds too complicated to you, don’t worry. We have an in-depth understanding of New York’s workers’ compensation laws, and we can help you maximize the compensation you receive from your injury or illness.
