  1. "You guys are the best, on top of things, always there when I need you. Whenever I call I get results and you are always attentive and move fast when I need you to. Great staff who knows me by name and treats me like a friend. Could not have gotten this far without you. Highly, highly recommended." - Thomas B.

  2. "You guys were really great in returning calls and I have referred many clients to you. You did a super job on my case. But what I remember mostly is that my son was denied benefits 25 years ago and back then his condition was not covered and considered disabling for SSD. You guys took on the case anyway and got the judge to agree. He would not have gotten benefits without your help. Thanks for everything." - Gloria B.

  3. "You have answered all our needs and been more than helpful. We have not been pressured to do anything during the 30 years you have represented us. Would recommend you to anyone with an injury." - M.B.

  4. "Attorney Seligman, I thank you and your staff for all the hard work that you have help me with on my compensation cases over the 26 + years. I know that in the future you and your staff will be there to assist me if I need it and more than likely I will need the help. I Thank You!" - J.B.

New York Workers Compensation & Disability Law Firm

Obtaining workers' compensation or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is often a long and complex process. 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 or SSDI processes.

At Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., in Schenectady, New York, 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 attorneys have decades of experience representing clients throughout the Capital District. We have worked as a team for more than 20 years.

Social Security Disability Insurance:

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.

Workers' compensation:

Any disabling injury or illness, whether or not it occurred at work, 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.

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 compensation you recover. We have experience working with both processes to maximize our clients' benefits through settlement or litigation.
