Handling Permanent Partial Disability Claims in New York

If you have lost the use of your hand, leg or another body part from a work-related injury, you may be considered to have a permanent partial disability. This would be based on a medical evaluation indicating you are not expected to fully recover. You are not expected to return to your line of work but should be able to rejoin the workforce in a new capacity. The amount of compensation and duration of your payments would depend on:

  • Your work-related injury
  • Your average weekly wage
  • Statutory guidelines

Some workers' compensation law firms quickly turn around cases. That is not our priority. We offer a client-driven approach to help you secure the compensation you are entitled. Our Brooklyn workers' compensation attorneys never use case numbers when referring to clients. When you select our law firm, we will know who you are and the type of serious work injury you have endured. We are prepared to evaluate your claim based on the type of benefits you are entitled. If the medical evaluation fails to accurately identify your condition, we will fight back to help you receive the full amount of benefits you need.
