New York Workers Compensation Lawyer
At Polsky, Shouldice & Rosen, P.C., our team of New York Workers Compensation Lawyers are seasoned legal professionals, who have vast experience handling workers comp cases. Unfortunately, we have seen all too often how an employee’s claim may get wrongfully denied by their employer’s insurance agency. Or if they are approved, they may not be getting the maximum compensation needed to cover their medical expenses and other losses.
Under no circumstances should you be paying out of your own pocket for a workplace accident that was no fault of your own. If you or someone you love was recently in a workplace accident and was seriously injured, then we encourage you to retain our legal services.
An Asset To Workers Comp Claim Denials
Our law office can prove to be a huge asset in fighting a wrongfully denied workers compensation claim. Many workers do not realize that they can petition against a denied claim, and instead accept the denial and end up suffering physically and/or financially because of it. Our team can offer support as you go through the following steps in fighting a claim denial:
- File an appeal with the Appeals Board. This necessitates that forms are completed entirely, precisely, and without error. Any mistakes may cause your appeal to be delayed or dropped. We can review the documents you have to fill out and confirm that there are no errors prior to submission.
- You will get a notification about your appeal hearing, where you will have the chance to tell your side of the story to the judge. It is imperative to the outcome of your appeal that you are prepared, have supporting evidence, and understand how the hearing is going to go.
Please note that if you were approved for workers compensation, but do not agree with the course of treatment suggested by your assigned doctor, you may need help from a NY Workers Compensation Lawyer to intervene and correct the situation.
How and Why Workplace Retaliation Happens
Those who have been approved for workers comp benefits after a workplace injury, may start to notice that they aren’t treated the same as they used to be (and for the worse). Maybe your boss has moved to another department, reduced your pay, created a hostile environment, or discouraged you from applying for workers comp benefits altogether. These are all examples of workplace retaliation, and can happen as a result of an employee utilizing a workers compensation program. This type of behavior against the worker is unlawful and discriminatory, and prompt action must be taken immediately with help from a lawyer to prevent the situation from escalating further.
