Workers' Compensation and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are often long and complex processes. You have enough to worry about if you recently suffered an injury or illness that is keeping you from work. Between the physical limitations, the emotional stress and the financial concerns, the last thing you need is additional problems caused by the Workers' Compensation and SSDI processes.
At Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., we have dedicated our entire legal practice to helping injured workers in construction and other industries obtain the financial compensation they need for their injuries. We know that the days and months after suffering neck or back injuries could be among the most difficult times in your life. We will answer your questions, simplify the process for you and help you get back on your feet again.
The Benefit of Experience
Our Schenectady Workers' Compensation attorneys have decades of experience representing clients throughout the Capital District. Because of our experience and focus, we have a thorough understanding of:
- Workers' Compensation: If you have been hurt on the job in an accident or due to repetitive motion, you are entitled to compensation. Many valid claims are denied, however, and obtaining workers' comp benefits can be challenging. We can help you.
- Social Security Disability Insurance: Any disabling injury or illness, whether it occurred at work or not, should be covered by SSDI, but this process can be even more difficult than Workers' Compensation. We have the experience to help you get the benefits you need.
Perhaps the most important benefit of our experience is that we understand the intersection between Workers' Compensation and SSDI. If you are entitled to benefits from both programs, there are many ways to make mistakes that could limit the total amount of compensation you obtain. We have experience working with both processes to maximize our clients' benefits through settlement or litigation.
