We are thrilled to announce that firm partner David Klein has been selected as a Top 10 Worker's Compensation Attorney by Attorney and Practice Magazine for 2020.
Getting hurt at work can be physically, emotionally and financially devastating. Workers should be able to rely on their employers to do the right thing as they take the necessary steps to file for workers' compensation benefits. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Because they cannot count on their bosses, injury victims in New York should be sure to understand what their rights are when it comes to workers' compensation benefits. This is especially helpful for those who think they might not qualify for benefits if they are fired.
Most people know that working on a construction site or in a factory is dangerous. It is easy to spot the workplace hazards in these environments, but that does not mean all dangers are easy to spot. Office workers get hurt too, and they can seek workers' compensation just like people who are working in more physical industries.
New York workers who were injured on the job will have many concerns as they seek treatment and try to recover. Lost wages, medical expenses and long-term problems are often worrisome. Workers' compensation is designed to provide these injured workers with a variety of benefits to let them concentrate on returning to full health. If they cannot recover fully or are unable to do the same job they did before, there are benefits for that as well.
Every year thousands of American workers are hurt in workplace accidents. While some of these injuries are minor, like small bumps and cuts, others are serious and may threaten the lives of those who are harmed. When a New York worker gets hurt while performing the duties of their job, they should take quick action to protect their rights to seek workers' compensation benefits.
Not all of the workers' compensation claims that New York residents file are approved. In fact, many claims for workers' compensation benefits are denied because they lack specific and necessary information. When preparing to file one's paperwork to seek workers' compensation it is important that individuals know what they are doing and that they can seek support from attorneys who work in this area of the law.
No solo su lugar de trabajo puede ser peligroso-su empleador puede ser un peligro para sus derechos legales. Los trabajadores de la construcción son especialmente vulnerables a ser clasificados erróneamente por sus empleadores como contratistas independientes.
It's not only your workplace that might be unsafe-your employer may be a hazard to your legal rights. Construction workers are especially vulnerable to being misclassified by their employers as independent contractors.
This winter, a New York small business owner came to us for help. The Workers' Compensation Board had hit her with a penalty of more than $21,000.00 because she had neglected to buy a workers' compensation insurance policy.
After a serious injury on the job, many workers feel bored and isolated. Social media can be a gateway to the outside world. Social media has become so pervasive that we often post without a second thought. When you're involved in a legal case, however, that can be dangerous.
