NY Workers Compensation Attorneys

Most employers carry Workers’ Compensation insurance for anyone who gets hurt on the job. As an employee, you can file a Workers’ Compensation claim to receive money to cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and disability when you suffer a workplace injury. Who’s at fault is not the central issue here. If you get hurt on the job, benefits are likely available. 

Unfortunately, your employer and their insurance company could run interference — they might not make it easy for you. They could even try to drive down the value of your Workers’ Compensation claim to save themselves money. Be aware of this, and don’t let them take advantage of you or manipulate you out of the compensation you deserve. Consult with a Workers’ Compensation lawyer from the law offices of Polsky, Shouldice & Rosen, P.C. Contact the New York Workers’ Compensation lawyers at Polsky, Shouldice & Rosen, P.C. for assistance. We understand how the Workers’ Compensation system works — and we know how to get you maximum compensation. Call us to schedule a free consultation and discuss your case today.

Why Call a New York Workers’ Compensation
Lawyer After a Job Injury?

Whoever you are and wherever you work, there’s always a risk of getting hurt on the job. Sadly, a workplace injury or illness can result in serious injuries. A workplace accident can also prevent you from getting back to work and earning a wage again. This can make your situation extremely difficult. Without the necessary financial assistance, you might not be able to make ends meet. 

Fortunately, New York has Workers’ Compensation laws to protect you if you’re hurt on the job. However, the process of navigating through the legal process and being awarded benefits can be lengthy, frustrating, and overwhelming. You might think that submitting a form means getting a check shortly afterward. However, there’s quite a bit more to it. You have to fill out the paperwork correctly, meet unwavering deadlines, and comply with the insurance company’s rules and procedures. 

Insurance companies don’t profit from paying out workers’ compensation claims. They save money by undervaluing or denying claims. Therefore, they’ll try to complicate and even manipulate you and the process to keep from maximizing your payout. They might use every trick in the book to minimize the benefits you’re awarded.  Hiring an attorney from Polsky, Shouldice & Rosen, P.C. can help you navigate the Workers’ Compensation benefits process. It may be the first and best action to take after you get hurt. We fight on behalf of injured New York laborers.

Can I recover workers' comp benefits, even if I wasn't actually at work when injured?

This is a question often posed to our New York workers’ compensation attorneys. Typically, if someone is injured as the result of a job, and the injury occurs within the scope of that job, then that employee is covered by workers’ compensation. This may include company travel, driving company vehicles, or participating in company events. However, if activities are conducted that fall outside the scope of work (like running a personal errand during a supply run), then it can affect whether or not the employee is eligible.

BEST! I have had nothing but a pleasant experience this is the hardest working team in my opinion.They always got back to me and were happy to answer anything I don’t understand. Tim Rogers and Ann E. Were amazing to me and have treated my case as a priority walking in their office during this overwhelming time was certainly the best choice I made.
