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.
