New York Workers' Compensation

Fighting For The Rights Of Injured Workers In New York City, Long Island And Westchester County

The State of New York requires employers to provide insurance coverage (sometimes called “workman’s’ compensation” or “workers’ comp”) to compensate men or women who are injured in the workplace or in a work-related capacity. Work-related injuries can take many forms:

While workers’ compensation claims generally apply only to injured employees, 9/11 volunteers may also qualify for workers’ compensation benefits under a special provision of New York State law.

Proven Workers’ Comp Lawyers

The Klein Law Group, P.C. assists injured workers throughout the New York metropolitan area. We aid clients in resolving legal issues that arise between the employee and the employer’s insurance company. In a free consultation , we can explain steps to take when you are injured on the job, including seeing a doctor as soon as possible.

We help determine all workers’ comp benefits you are entitled to, as well as related benefits such as union benefits, unemployment insurance, and Social Security Disability as an injured worker.

Our lawyers take the time to explain the workers’ compensation process from filing the initial claim to appealing a denial of benefits to the state Workers’ Compensation Board. Generally, injured workers have up to two years to file a claim.

Denial Of New York Workers’ Compensation Claims

If your insurance company denies the claim, disputes are heard before an administrative law judge. After listening to the facts off the case, the ALJ will issue a decision. Either the injured worker or the insurance company may appeal the decision. Appeals are reviewed by commissioners of the Workers’ Compensation Board.

Many people who try to handle their own workman’s’ comp cases find the process daunting and difficult. You are better off hiring an attorney who focuses on occupational injury claims. We strive to resolve your case as quickly as possible, while ensuring you receive all the benefits you are entitled to.

If we secure benefits in your work injury claim, our fee will be decided by a judge and be deducted directly from the compensation. If we are unsuccessful in obtaining benefits, you owe us nothing.
