Everything You Need to Know about Workers Comp in New York

Share

The aftermath of a work accident can make it tough to recover. You’re hurt, but you still need an income. Without it, you might not have the money to eat, let alone to cover your medical bills and other expenses.

You know that you should have workers comp benefits, but you might not know where to start or what to do to get those benefits. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know about workers comp in New York right here. This guide can help you get the start you need to file your claim, as well as figure out what a workers comp lawyer can do for your claim.

Your New York Workers Comp Benefits

First, your workers compensation should cover the losses you’ve suffered because of your work injury. For example, you might have suffered a head injury, and now you have trouble focusing and remembering things. You might be completely unable to work for a little while.

In this example, you’d typically receive both medical care benefits and wage replacement. Your injuries should be covered so that you don’t have to worry about your medical bills while you’re trying to focus on recovery.

You’ll also need to seek out wage replacement benefits for your losses. These benefits should cover the loss of income you’re facing after your accident. The amount you’ll receive will depend on factors like whether you’re able to work, how long you’ll be unable to work, and whether your injuries are permanent. Because of this, it’s best to talk to a New York attorney about the worth of your benefits.

Dealing with a Workers Compensation Denial

Knowing what your claim is worth is only a part of the claim process, though. You’ll also need to report your injuries, file your claim, and let the workers comp insurance provider investigate your claim. Usually, they’ll offer you a settlement after reviewing your claim.

Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Many New York workers are denied their workers comp benefits, making it tough to recover from their injuries. If you’re one of those denied workers, you may need a lawyer on your side to fight that denial.

If you believe you’re not getting the benefits you deserve, or if you’re not getting benefits at all, your lawyer can help you appeal before the workers compensation board. The right workers comp attorney can help you gather evidence and argue for the benefits you need for a full recovery.
