Psychological and Emotional Injuries
Mental illnesses and emotional disorders can be just as debilitating as physical injuries, if not more. Unfortunately, they are not well-understood and it can be difficult to obtain workers’ compensation benefits when they prevent you from working. If you suffer from a psychological or emotional injury, it is crucial to have an experienced workers’ compensation attorney handling your case.
In Staten Island, New York, you can rely on Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, to provide you with the effective, compassionate representation you need. Our lawyers have successfully handled more than 25,000 workers’ compensation hearings. We will take on your employer and its workers’ compensation carrier to make sure you get the full compensation you are entitled to if a mental or emotional condition prevents you from working.
Full-Service Representation for Psychological Injury Claims
We are strong advocates for workers suffering from psychological and emotional disorders, including:
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
We have the resources to make a convincing case about your need for benefits, including counseling, medical treatment and wage loss benefits. From making sure your condition is properly diagnosed and treated to handling administrative hearings and appeals, we will handle your entire case so you can focus on your treatment and recovery.
Our ability to handle workers’ compensation claims and Social Security Disability (SSD) claims means that we can maximize your compensation. If your inability to work is for the long term, you may quality for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits rather than workers’ compensation.
