What Benefits Are Workers Entitled To Receive?
The benefits that you may be eligible to receive are dependent on the circumstances surrounding your injury, the extent of your injury and other factors. In New York, injured workers may be awarded:
- Cash benefits to cover lost wages
- Medical benefits to pay for expenses related to work-related injuries, work-related illness and rehabilitation
- Supplemental benefits to offset rising costs
- Social Security benefits to support workers who are seriously or permanently disabled as a result of a work-related injury or illness
Death benefits are available to family members of a worker who died as a result of a workplace accident or illness. These benefits may include funeral expenses and cash benefits.
Qualified To Assist With Applications And Appeals
When you get injured on site, it is typically your employer’s insurance company that pays out the claim. These insurance companies don’t make a profit when they provide fair compensation. They make money by denying claims.
We have substantial experience with the application and appeals process. We will help you complete the necessary forms and file them with the appropriate agency. If your claim is denied, we will create a strong argument to support your case before board claims examiners and appellate court judges.
