Trouble Getting Your Benefits?

With recent changes to New York workers’ comp law, it is no surprise that many people are confused about their benefits. Some of the concerns and questions people often have about payments are:

  • My doctor says I’m totally disabled, but I’m not getting total benefits.
  • How is the rate calculated?
  • How often are payments made?
  • How much will I get? Can it be changed?
  • My compensation is taking too long to receive.
  • The carrier has accepted my case but is not paying me or not paying the agreed upon amount.
  • My compensation is supposed to come every two weeks, but they are often late.
