Helping Injured Workers Obtain Their Rightful Benefits
New York law provides benefits for almost all workers injured on the job. Although benefits are mandated, many initial claims are denied — indeed, according to the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board, nearly 25 percent of claims were rejected in recent years. As such, it is critical to have experienced and knowledgeable legal representation to improve your chances of success.
