If you have sustained a work injury, documentation could prove vital to helping your workers compensation attorney with your claim. Details can turn any case around if they pertain to the work injury. So, pay attention to any of the small stuff, as you never know what can make a case stronger. Documentation is a necessary step in the compensation process, as it can paint a clearer picture of the events leading up to and after the injury. And not for nothing, but people's memories aren't always the best. Which is why writing is down can help in the long term. It is much easier to remember the turn of events when it is more recently in your mind. But no matter the parameters of how you were injured on the job, we are here to listen. Our lawyers have been representing clients throughout New York for years.
You May Be Entitled To Compensation Benefits
When you work with a workers compensation attorney from GBM, you will be working with the best. We can look at your case and see what sort of benefits that you may be entitled to. Under the New York State Workmans' Compensation Law, workers who have been injured on the job or have suffered an occupational illness of injury are entitled to benefits. Some of these benefits and and compensation areas may include:
- Cash payments for the lost time at work
- Cash payments due to a reduction in earnings due to the injury or illness
- Payment of doctor bills
Any of those areas may be looked at and considered when filing for workers compensation. The company is liable for accidents that may happen on the job and you should not have to suffer the consequences. This is why it is important for you to have a workers compensation attorney you can trust. An employer cannot charge their employees for this coverage, but an employee may not sue for benefits either. Neither party is deemed at fault for the accident, injury or illness.
If the claim is disputed by the insurance carrier or the self-insured employer, benefits are not payable pending a determination by the New York Workers' Compensation Board. This will involve hearings before an Administrative Law Judge who may consider testimony from the injured employee and/or employer, as well as medical witnesses. The Law Judge will then determine whether the claim is valid, and, if so, what benefits the injured employee is entitled to.
Even if the claim is not disputed, issues often arise as to an injured worker’s entitlement to benefits. These issues also are resolved by an Administrative Law Judge at hearings held at the New York State Workers' Compensation Board. The insurance carrier or the self-insured employer will have legal representation at these hearings. So should you.
