Our Attorneys Understand The Challenges Before You
Your occupation can feel like part of your identity. After suffering a severe injury, your career can be temporarily or even permanently swept away, leaving you feeling confused, frightened and unsure of what to do next. As your lawyers, we will do everything within the parameters of the law to see that you receive benefits to cover your expenses while you recover and make your way back to your previous position, train for a new job or, in certain cases, retire due to a permanent disability.
When you work with us, we will explain the laws passed by the state of New York that require your employer, or your employer’s insurance company, to compensate you, or your family, for injuries or death that occurred while you were working. You may be entitled to:
- Weekly benefits while you are temporarily totally disabled and unable to work
- Payment of your medical expenses
- Weekly payments or a lump sum payment for partial or total disability resulting from a work-related injury
