Fractures, Broken Bones And Amputations

According to a recent report by the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board, broken bones and amputations made up 26.3 percent of Workers’ Compensation claims in our state.Fracturing or breaking a bone is more than painful. It often requires surgery, rehab and a lengthy recuperation period. If you suffered a partial or total amputation of a limb, the challenges are even greater. You will need to learn anew how to perform routine tasks, all while facing emotional scars. When such injuries occur on the job, you may be eligible for Workers’ Compensation benefits.However, obtaining those benefits can be quite difficult.
