Tap Into All Sources Of Financial Relief After An On-The-Job Injury

Workers’ compensation laws were set up in New York to benefit employers, providing a way to minimize their liability for workplace injury or illness. The workers’ compensation laws are supposed to represent an agreement between workers and management. In exchange for relinquishing their right to sue for work-related injuries, employees are entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical expenses and vocational rehabilitation. Accordingly, the New York worker’s compensation laws generally provide the only remedy for recovery for a workplace injury in the state, with some exceptions. Our Long Island workers’ compensation attorneys know the circumstances where you may be able to recover more than just workers’ compensation benefits and will analyze your case to determine all potential sources of income – possibly including Social Security Disability (SSD) if you will be unable to work for a year or longer. .

In our experience, workers’ compensation insurance companies and employers often fail to live up to their end of the bargain, routinely refusing to pay valid claims or stopping payments before workers are able to return to their jobs.In cases of serious injuries, workers often need legal help. A lawyer can also advise injured employees of their possible eligibility for SSD benefits. At the offices The Klein Law Group, P.C., our attorneys aggressively protect disabled workers’ rights.
