Work Injury Lawyers Long Island
Gilbert, Blaszcyk & Milburn, LLP provides work injury lawyers for people across Long Island. In a nutshell, workers' compensation is insurance that provides cash benefits and/or medical care for workers who are injured on the job or become ill as a direct result of their job. Employers pay for this insurance, and do not require the employee to contribute to the cost of compensation. The employer's insurance carrier pays out weekly cash benefits and medical care. This is directed by the Workers' Compensation Board, which is a state agency that processes the claims. If Board intervention is necessary during the process, it will determine whether that insurer will reimburse for cash benefits and/or medical care, and the amounts payable.
When it comes to workers' compensation cases it is important to note that no one party is determined to be at fault for the incident. The claimant receives a designated amount of money and compensation for their injury. However, this amount is not dictated by his or her carelessness at work. And it is not increased if it is the fault of the employer.
Drugs or alcohol are grounds for the worker to lose any worker's compensation payments they may be entitled to from being injured at work. If the worker shows intent to injure him or herself, or a fellow co-worker they would also be ineligible to receive compensation. At our law firm, we have a strong grasp on the lettering of these laws and will help you get compensated fairly.
