Decades Of Experience Helping Injured Workers

Our attorneys have decades of experience representing injured workers in Schenectady, Albany, Troy and the entire Capital District. At Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., we focus exclusively on helping injured New York workers. We represent our clients applying for Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Our job is to simplify the process and secure compensation for injuries suffered in any of the following types of accidents:

  • Construction accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Ladder falls
  • Forklift accidents
  • Work-related car and truck accidents

The Schenectady work accident attorneys of Silverman, Silverman & Seligman, P.C., understand the difficulties that you are facing. Stress from the physical pain of injuries is combined with the intimidating processes of Workers’ Compensation and SSDI. Complexities exist, particularly when it involves a third-party or wrongful death claim. In addition, there are caps and settlement issues that you should be aware of.

We will use our experience to simplify the process for you and help you get back on your feet if you have suffered any of the following work-related injuries.

  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Injuries to the legs, feet, arms or hands
  • Injuries resulting in vision or hearing loss

The Intersection Between Workers’ Compensation And SSDI

Although they both provide means for injured workers to obtain compensation for work-related injuries, Workers’ Compensation and SSDI are very different programs. Many people don’t realize that SSDI can require offsetting payments for injured workers who are also receiving workers’ comp benefits.

Clients come to us with various questions regarding both programs, including:

  • How can I speed up the SSD hearing date and the Workers’ Compensation process?
  • Why do I need an SSD or Workers’ Compensation lawyer?

Talk with an experienced lawyer to learn more about the intersection between Workers’ Compensation and SSDI. Please know that we also represent clients regarding long-term disability insurance claims as well.
