NYC Workers' Compensation Claims Lawyers

Protecting Your Right to Recover Compensation Is Our Priority

To qualify for workers' compensation, you need to tell your employer about the work-related accident within 30 days. Your employer will need to know what happened and what part of your body was injured. If you fail to notify your employer within that time period, you may lose your right to file a workers' comp claim.

Work injury claims are often denied, because the workers' compensation application process can be confusing. The New York law firm of Caruso, Spillane, Leighton, Contrastano, Savino & Smollar, P.C., was established in the 1950s to help injured workers get back on their feet. We have a thorough understanding of the state's workers' compensation system. We know what needs to be covered in order to help you secure the benefits you are entitled.

Do not try to deal with the bureaucratic workers' compensation system on your own. We offer free initial consultations to explain how we can help you secure the compensation you are entitled to. Contact our New York workers' compensation claim attorneys well within the first 30 days of the accident to protect your rights.

Helping Injured Workers Navigate Through the Legal Process

You have two years from the date of the work-related accident to file a claim with the Workers' Compensation Board. The longer you wait, however, the more difficult it becomes to prove the full extent of your case. This delay may result in a delay in payment or fewer benefits than you should be receiving. We will file the claim for you to make sure it is done properly so the risk of denial is reduced significantly. In the rare instance that your claim is denied, we will appeal it for you.
