New York Work-Related Injury Lawyers

Almost any type of work-related illness or injury is covered through New York's workers' compensation system. This no-fault system is designed to help injured workers make ends meet while recovering from a work-related accident. This sounds pretty straightforward. Yet, insurance companies are known to try and limit the amount of compensation injured workers can recover.

We know what pitfalls to avoid to fight back against wrongfully delayed or denied claims.

Helping Injured Workers Obtain a Full Financial Recovery

After filing a workers' compensation claim, a doctor will evaluate you to determine the extent of your condition. You can select your own doctor, but your insurance company can also select a doctor to conduct an independent medical evaluation. Often, doctors have conflicting findings.
