Workers' Compensation Attorney in New York City, New York

Workers' compensation laws were created in order to set up a straightforward method for injured workers to recover compensation for work-related injuries, while protecting employers from continual personal injury claims or trials.

As a worker, unless a third-party contributed to your injuries, workers' comp may be your only means of compensation.

The process of recovering compensation after a work accident involves:

In the state of New York, any worker who is injured on the job or while performing a work-related task only has 30 days in which to provide his or her employer with a written or verbal notification of the accident and injuries sustained. Injured workers will be given 2 years from the date of their accident to file an official workers' compensation claim requesting benefits. In cases where a worker is involved in a workplace accident that results in an occupational disability, or that worker dies as a result of such an accident, all workers' compensation benefit claims must be submitted within 2 years from the date the worker became aware of the disability or from the date of death.

Any delay in filing a claim for workers' comp benefits could result in a complete denial of benefits. Even in cases where a worker is receiving benefits from his or her employer's insurance company prior to filing a claim, it is still necessary for that worker to file a claim so as to protect his or her benefits and rights. If you have been injured while on the job, we strongly recommend you obtain legal counsel from an experienced New York workers' compensation attorney at our firm right away. If your workers' comp claim has been wrongful denied, there is also an appeals process.

Whatever your case may be, our New York City personal injury attorneys at Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan, LLP are committed to ensuring that you recover every penny you deserve in compensation.
