Workers' Compensation

Being hurt at work puts everything at risk. It becomes harder to advance your career, and you can’t work to pay off the mounting medical expenses that you incur. These life-changing situations can sink you into a hole of debt that grows increasingly difficult to escape.

Injured Workers

We work to uphold the rights of those whose livelihoods hang in the balance. From educating people about workers' compensation to filing on our clients behalf. We’re proud to protect the workforces in our community.

Insurance Carriers and Employers

The Firm’s Workers’ Compensation attorneys have experience in all phases of the Workers’ Compensation process – developing and implementing claim defense strategy; handling claims throughout the hearing and trial process; negotiating and drafting Section 32 Settlements; drafting and arguing administrative appeals and perfecting appeals to the Appellate Division, Third Department and the New York State Court of Appeals.

Uninsured Employers

As workers' compensation attorneys, we meet many small-business owners who are surprised to learn that they are out of compliance with the New York Workers' Compensation Laws. Legal requirements are complex, and it is fairly easy to fall out of step with the insurance regulations.

We help employers and small-business owners who have run into issues with the workers' compensation system. Whether New York has discovered that you do not have the proper insurance coverage or an  employee was injured on the job you may incur significant consequences. Contact us today to learn more about your rights and options in this situation.
