Helping New York workers maximize their compensation

If you have suffered an injury on the job, you may or may not know that you can recover compensation for your injuries thanks to workers' compensation benefits. It is important, however, to closely analyze the circumstances of your accident and seek out legal aid to help you ensure that you are receiving the compensation that you deserve. Without thoroughly investigating the accident, your injuries and the legal possibilities, you could be settling for less than you deserve.

The most important thing to determine is how many parties were at fault for your injuries. Were the injuries caused by a co-worker's negligence, or even multiple coworkers' negligence? Were the injuries caused by lack of safety features or training on the part of the employer? Depending on who all was responsible for the injury, you could recover compensation from multiple sources, increasing the benefits to which you are entitled.

The second thing you will want to investigate is the full extent of your injuries. Many times injured workers notice the immediate effects of an injury, such as broken bones or bruises and cuts, and they accept compensation only for those injuries. Later on, they may discover that the injuries were more severe than they first thought, but by then they may be unable to recover additional compensation.

All of these factors can affect a workers' compensation claim, and it is important to have a thorough understanding of each and every one in order to ensure that the compensation you receive is just, relative to your injuries.
