Previously Denied Claims
Not all hope is lost if you have been injured on the job and have had your work injury claim denied, because each attorney here can help get your case heard. As a work injury law group, we aim to help those who have had a compensation claim denied. One of the more popular reasons a work injury claim was denied is the simple fact that it was not filed in time. Most states require you to file for your claim as soon as possible. This means that it is typically within a few days of you being injured on the job. There is also the unfortunate possibility that your employer is disputing your work injury claim. This dispute arises because: your injury possibly did not happen at the workplace, your injury is a pre-existing condition, or your claim form was not filled out correctly or sufficiently.
These reasons for a denied claim are not important to us. We will look into the claim and help you get the benefits that you deserve. It is important to note that if your claim is denied, you may not have a compelling case. However, we will work diligently with you to get the compensation you deserve. We will help you plan your legal actions and provide you with the best case possible.
The Importance of Documentation
If you have been injured on the job, then it is important to document it for your attorney. Documentation is important for a few different reasons. Read more on what you need to document pertaining to your work injury.
- Describe in detail how you got injured. If you hurt your head, write about how you exactly hurt your head. This will give important insight into the safety conditions present at your work.
- Describe how you have been feeling since the injury. These notes should be as specific as possible. This way a picture is painted as to how this injury has affected your day-to-day living.
- Document if you have gone to therapy or took medication for a specific work injury. This gives context to how the injury has put a strain on your life, as you have devoted time to recuperate to an injury that you suffered at work.
- Keep track of any visits to your doctor so you have medical proof for yourself and your workers compensation attorney to use at your trial. Doctor's notes are great, because they are an authority on injuries.
For those injured on the job, your attorney can use any notes to help build your case. Each attorney at Gilbert, Blaszcyk & Milburn have years of experience working with those injured on the job across Long Island. You can trust us with your workers compensation case. We will work tirelessly to deliver the benefits that you deserve.
Filing a Lawsuit
If you are injured on the job at a construction site, you may need an attorney. We can help with that! A good attorney can help determine if the injury happened because of negligence or neglect on the part of the workers or supervisors. Medical bills, emotional trauma, pain and suffering, lost wages and a range of other damages and disabilities are also eligible for compensation. However, the company can be negligent, but you can still run into issues if they are under the auspices of a government agency. That is because government entities have certain caps and immunities in place to work against lawsuits. It becomes complex to file suits against these companies. On top of all that, you will be working under tighter deadlines.
This is why you need an attorney on Long Island you can trust if you have been injured on the job. You want to receive fair compensation and sometimes that can only happen when you get the best legal advice. So please, do not hesitate to reach out to one of our law firms on Long Island. When you call, we can provide you with a no-obligation consultation.
