Helping New York workers recover compensation for illness

For most workers' compensation claims, the aid of an attorney is more of a safeguard than a necessity, because your employer's insurance will generally be willing to pay out if a claim is made. Some injuries may occur under questionable circumstances, and you may need legal aid to help you prove the validity of your claim, but in most instances, legal assistance will simply allow you to better understand your rights and the amount to which you are entitled. However, with workplace illnesses, legal aid is often a necessity.

If you are struck by a falling object at your place of work, and witnesses will testify that you were at your place of work, it is very hard for the insurance company to claim that your case is not valid. But when you claim that you are suffering from a chronic illness because of your work-related duties, the insurance company has a great deal more freedom in claiming that your illness is not their responsibility.

Oftentimes insurance companies will assert that your illness is simply the result of age, deteriorating health or even genetics. Unlike most types of workers' compensation claim, you will almost certainly have to go to great lengths to prove that your illness is work-related or that your job contributed to the illness, and that is where legal assistance can help you.

We pride ourselves on helping injured New York workers recover the full amount of compensation that they deserve, and that includes illnesses. If you believe that your job has caused or contributed to an illness that is negatively affecting your life, please visit our web page. We can help you fully investigate your ailment and the possible causes, allowing you to prove that your work caused the illness and that you deserve the compensation to match.
