Why Hire an Attorney for Workers’ Compensation?
There are some tremendous benefits to working with us on your compensation claim rather than handling everything alone:
- Proactively pursuing benefits: If you have been injured on the job, you will not automatically be awarded the benefits or workers’ compensation. Even if you’re eligible, you will need to be proactive and aggressively pursue the benefits. An experienced attorney team can help with this.
- Fighting the insurance company: The insurance company will hire a team of lawyers to save them money by not paying your compensation. Our job is to go against these attorneys to get you the maximum benefits you’re entitled to.
- Navigating the complicated process: The process of filing for and obtaining workers’ compensation in New York is not easy. Your chances are much better with an experience legal team on your side.
We can represent you throughout the entire process, from the initial filing of a claim through any appeals that are needed. We will fight to the end for your workers’ compensation benefits.
We are not afraid to go up against the insurance companies’ lawyers. We have the experience and the resources to represent you.
We work on contingency, so you don’t pay us unless we get a settlement for you. Even then, the court sets the fee, so you know it’s fair. Either call one of our New York offices or email the firm to schedule a free initial consultation.
