Helping people navigate workers' compensation appeals

A previous post on this blog talked about the workers' compensation appeal process that injured workers in Garden City and across Long island can utilize if they don't like the initial decision of their employer's insurance company.

However, as the previous post also mentioned, filing and an pursuing a workers' compensation appeal can prove to be difficult and stressful. There are a lot of different steps a worker may have to take, and keeping track of all the deadlines and other important procedures can be hard for someone who does not work with the system regularly. Moreover, when New York worker has been denied the benefits he or she deserves, he or she probably already has enough to worry about.

Our law office can help relieve some of the stress an injured construction worker or other worker may be feeling after having a workers' compensation claim denied or after getting a reward that does not take proper account of the full extent of the worker's injuries. After meeting with them at a free initial consultation and getting an idea of their legal needs and objectives, we can assist them with filing a worker's compensation claim or appeal that is the most likely to get them the benefits they want.

Although of course we cannot guarantee the result of every case, we are also well aware of the defenses employers and their insurance companies may mount. For instance, they often argue an injury did not really take place at work and is not work-related. They also may admit that they owe some compensation but deny the injury is all that serious. We are proactive about responding to these and similarly arguments assertively and decisively.
