Far too many New Yorkers are living paycheck-to-paycheck. Thus, when unexpected expenses arise, these individuals may have trouble making ends meet. The same holds true for those who have been injured on the job and are subsequently unable to work. If you are in this situation, you're likely facing unexpected medical expenses and lost wages, which can really throw your finances into a tailspin. While it's true that workers' compensation benefits may be available to you, they are not guaranteed.
In fact, many workers' compensation claims are rejected. Why? There are a number of reasons. One of the most common is that the injury is deemed to have been suffered outside of one's work capacity. Those who are hurt while engaging in activities that are not part of their job will likely have their claims denied. Similarly, an injured worker who is granted workers' compensation may be granted benefits that do not meet their needs. This can be an evidentiary issue in that the injured worker has failed to demonstrate the true extent of his or her losses.
To prevent this from happening, many New Yorkers turn to experienced legal professionals to help them present their initial claim, appeal a denied claim, or challenge a re-evaluation of benefits.
