Helping New Yorkers understand their workers' compensation rights

Workers' compensation is not a nice bonus that people are given to compensate them for an injury they receive on the job. It is a necessary insurance that allows people to perform the functions of their job safe in the knowledge that they will not be left destitute if an accident occurs. It is something that no worker should hesitate to take advantage of if they are injured on the job. Even if you think that your injury will not qualify, it behooves you to investigate.

Because workers' compensation benefits exist for the employees, claims are usually not too difficult to be compensated for. In fact, the insurance company may even make you an offer to settle your claim quickly and easily. However, just because your employer and their insurance may seem compliant does not mean that it is not in your best interests to seek legal assistance.

The truth is that while most companies are happy to provide workers' compensation benefits (even though they are usually required to do so), the insurance companies are still not quick to hand out a massive paycheck if they can avoid it. This means that even if they make you an offer, it may not be for as much as you deserve. As a worker, you have rights, and it is in your best interests to take advantage of them.

If you would like legal assistance to help you understand your rights and get the most out of your workers' compensation benefits, please visit our webpage. Not only can you receive more information about New York workers' compensation laws, you can schedule a free initial consultation with our firm to discuss the aspects of your case and help you get the compensation you deserve.
