Why Hire a Nassau County Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?
We aggressively defend the rights of hard-working New Yorkers who have been hurt on the job. We help injured workers navigate the complicated workers’ compensation insurance claim process, from filing a workers’ compensation claim and choosing a doctor to understanding workers’ compensation benefits or submitting wage and hour claims. We prepare for every case as if we are going to trial, and we have no hesitation to do so if needed, which motivates opponents to settle out of court and with a sizable amount. After your workplace accident, you and your family probably have a lot of questions about your injury. Our Nassau County workers’ compensation lawyers understand New York’s labor laws, and we understand what you’re going through.
Filing Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
After sustaining an injury on the job or discovering a work-related illness, it is critical that you seek medical attention and notify your supervisor/employer of your medical condition immediately. From there, you should hire a Nassau County workers’ compensation lawyer who can help ensure you file your claim properly. You will first file a Form C-3 and send it to the nearest Workers’ Compensation Board. The sooner you speak with an attorney and file your claim, the better off you will be, and if you wait any longer than two years from the date of your injury, you will most likely lose your right to workers’ compensation benefits.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Fortunately for those who’ve been injured on the job, workers’ compensation benefits may provide them with significant financial relief. For example, workers’ compensation benefits may cover their medical bills, a portion of their lost wages, and more. Further, if you’ve lost a loved one in a work-related accident, you may receive up to 2/3 of your loved one’s average weekly wage in death benefits in the year before the fatal accident occurred.
