How to Handle a Workers Comp Dispute in NY

Share

If you’ve been injured at work, you may expect that your New York workers comp benefits should cover your injuries and losses. However, you might have been denied compensation, or your workers comp benefits may not have covered the full benefits you are eligible for. 

In these cases, you’ll need to know how to handle a workers comp dispute in New York before you head to court. Your workers comp lawyer can be key for getting your full benefits, not just what your employer is willing to offer.

The Hearing Process

First, you’ll need to understand the hearing process and what to expect before you head to court. The workers compensation provider must file a notice of controversy within eighteen days of your disability beginning, or ten days since they were aware of your injuries. 

Your case will be overseen by a judge who will review the details of your case, including evidence that you were injured at work. The judge will also review your employer’s statements. From there, they can determine whether you should receive workers comp benefits for your injuries. 

Gather Evidence for Your Defense 

Before you head into your hearing, make sure you have evidence for your case. Your New York workers comp lawyer can help you gather evidence that you were injured on the job. 

That could include video or photo evidence, eyewitness testimonies, and expert testimony, among other pieces of information. If you believe it may help your workers comp hearing, your lawyer may include it in your case. 

Appealing a Workers Comp Decision

In some cases, you might have already been passed over for your hearing—the judge sided with the workers comp insurance company, and now you’re struggling to recover from your injuries. Fortunately, that’s not the end of your workers comp claim. 

You have thirty days after a decision is reached to appeal the judge’s decision. After that, you and your workers comp lawyer can dispute the decision, which will be submitted for review to the workers compensation board. They’ll decide whether to affirm the judge’s decision, modify the decision, or completely reverse their decision.
