What To Know About Workers’ Compensation
Your workers’ compensation case might be much more complicated than it initially appears. At Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, our experienced attorneys take a closer look at your case in order to ensure that you are taking full advantage of the compensation that is available to you.
We perform a thorough review of the facts of your accident to determine if there are additional sources of compensation we can pursue in addition to the benefits you receive under the workers’ comp system. Some of the various issues that we address as part of your case will include:
- Reviewing the types of compensation available — Under the New York workers’ compensation system, you may be able to recover benefits to help you deal with medical expenses and lost wages. There may be additional benefits paid to you for any disabilities that may result due to your workplace injury or illness.
- Evaluating the potential for a Section 32 settlement — We work with you to determine if it is in your best interests to settle your workers’ comp claim for a lump sum. We can work with you to analyze your illness or injuries to find out if this is the right path for you to take as part of your case.
- Understanding the relationship between Social Security Disability and workers’ compensation benefits — Some workers who suffer from workplace illnesses or injuries will be able to recover Social Security Disability benefits due to their current condition. We help you understand how to maximize the compensation you may be able to receive under SSD and workers’ compensation laws.
- Examining the factors of your case to determine if third-party claims are possible — If your workplace injury was caused by someone other than a co-worker or your employer, you may have personal injury claims against that third party. This may entitle you to receive more compensation than what is available under the workers’ compensation system.
Because the workers’ compensation system is so complex, it is important to speak to one of our attorneys to gain a full understanding of the options that are available to you. We can help you recover the maximum compensation that you are entitled to receive due to the facts of your case.
