Do not settle for less than you deserve

Workers’ compensation is a vital benefit afforded to employees under the law. Because of these benefits, workers can do their jobs to the best of their abilities, safe in the knowledge that they and their families will be taken care of if an accident or illness should occur. However, it is important to remember that nobody likes to give away free money, so while employees can enjoy the protection of workers’ compensation, they may not always be given as much as they need.

In the event that you are injured on the job, the insurance carrier that handles your employer’s workers’ compensation may offer you a settlement. You may think that this is your employer taking good care of you and offering you the compensation to which you are entitled, but this is not necessarily the case. As of 2007, employee benefits are capped depending on how severe the injury is, meaning that insurance carriers may offer you a settlement based on the amount they think you are owed, or that you seem to be owed based on your injuries.

Because these benefits could be the difference between maintaining your standard of living and not, it is highly advisable that you consult with a workers’ compensation attorney to discuss the aspects of your case. Our webpage can give you more information about the changes to workers’ compensation laws in New York and how they affect your benefits. While you’re there, you can learn how to set up a free consultation.

Some injuries are more severe than they appear, and sometimes symptoms are delayed or misdiagnosed. Additionally, depending on the circumstances of your injury, you may able to file other claims for more compensation. Consulting a legal professional may help you investigate the incidents and build strong claims to get the compensation you deserve.
