When a person cannot work following a workplace accident, expenses can quickly add up. In these situations, every penny counts. People have medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation costs and more that are added to their everyday expenses. Workers’ compensation is supposed to provide New York workers with the money they need following an accident. This is often a worker’s only source of income in these situations. Needless to say, this money is very important.
Unfortunately, many New York workers have a difficult time collecting this compensation. Even after a person has been approved for workers’ compensation, the person may find that the payment amount is not correct or that the payments are late. These mistakes may seem small, but in some situations they can make the difference between financial security and incurring debt.
Our law firm understands how important a person’s workers’ compensation payments are. Over the last few years there have been many changes to the New York workers’ compensation laws. These laws have made it difficult for people to truly understand everything to which they are entitled. We can help individuals understand exactly how much compensation they are entitled to get. Furthermore, our attorneys can help people fight for this amount at all levels of the process.
We can help people understand how long it generally takes for people to start receiving benefits, how the benefits are calculated and what to do if benefits are late. With this understanding, people can determine if there is a problem with their benefits and how to fix it.
No one should struggle to collect the workers’ compensation they are entitled to following a workplace accident. New York residents that want to know more about collecting workers’ compensation should see our website.
