Manhattan Workers Comp Lawyer

Being injured while working in Manhattan can be one of the most stressful experiences of your life. While you are likely coping with a painful recovery, you may have to deal with an employer’s workers’ compensation insurer who may not want to honor your comp claim. Having one of our Manhattan workers’ comp lawyers on your side may make it easier to navigate this process by allowing you to focus on your treatment and healing.

After a job accident, many injured workers miss time at work while undergoing care. Without workers’ compensation benefits, you may start to wonder how you are going to pay your medical bills and take care of your family. This becomes an especially pressing question if you have suffered a job-related injury resulting in a permanent disability. It is a difficult situation, but it is, unfortunately, one that is all too common.

If you suffered a workplace injury in New York City, contact one of our Manhattan workers’ compensation lawyers for a free legal consultation.

Call us now: 866.932.5558.

Our Lawyers Understand Manhattan Workers’ Compensation Claims

Most New York employers are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance, but that does not mean that they will pay a comp claim easily. They might dispute the cause of an injury, or they might question whether you are injured at all. An insurer could try to claim that the injury is not covered by workers’ compensation. This is why it may be necessary to hire a Manhattan workers’ compensation attorney from our team to help with your claim.

Shulman & Hill is a workers’ compensation law firm in Manhattan with numerous past successes helping injured workers recover fair compensation after a workplace injury. We understand the tactics insurance companies may use to deny or delay your claim, and we know how to defeat them. You deserve the maximum benefits you are owed and we can help you get them.

We can help injured workers understand the benefits possible based on their coverage, gather evidence to support their claim, and may fight the insurance company for the benefits they deserve based on the case facts. We handle these claims from start to finish so workers can focus on healing and getting back to work when possible.

Why Hire One of Our Manhattan Workers’ Compensation Lawyers?

Whether you work in an office, on a construction site, or anything in between, there is the potential for an on-the-job injury. Workplace injuries and illnesses not only have the potential to result in staggering medical expenses, but they can also impact your ability to continue earning a living. Without workers’ compensation benefits, it can be impossible for a person to keep up with their living expenses after an injury.

With a workers’ compensation lawyer on your side, you can have a legal professional who can protect your rights. Your attorney may help you fill out the necessary forms and make sure that you do not miss any important deadlines. A Manhattan workers’ compensation attorney may also help to investigate the incident and provide evidence showing how your injury or illness qualifies for maximum compensation.

As a workers’ compensation law firm in Manhattan, the team from Shulman & Hill understands how to protect the rights of our clients. We have the experience, knowledge, and resources to ensure our clients have a chance at recovering the benefits or settlement they deserve based on their case facts. We may be able to help you secure coverage for your medical care and missed work.

What to Do After a Manhattan Workplace Injury

Workers’ compensation is not something that is paid out automatically. Injured workers must follow protocols to notify their employer of the work-related injury and file their claim. There are some steps you can take to help prevent your Manhattan workers’ compensation claim from being denied.

First, you need to seek treatment for the injury or illness. This could be at a hospital, occupational health clinic, or through your primary care doctor. There may be rules you need to follow about where and how quickly you receive medical care. Along with getting medical care, you should notify your employer of the injury or illness.

You may then need to file your workers’ compensation claim. This includes providing information about your employment status and the type of incident that caused the injury. These claims can be time-sensitive, so you should try to file them as soon as you can.

Consulting a workers’ compensation lawyer in Manhattan may help ensure a successful outcome. A lawyer can help you fill out the necessary forms and make sure you do not miss any important deadlines. Our attorneys may also provide guidance and representation if you run into any obstacles with getting the benefits for work-related injuries promised under your employer’s policy.

How Much Is a Workers’ Compensation Claim Worth?

As any Manhattan workers’ compensation attorney can tell you, each claim is unique. Different workplace accidents can have different outcomes for the injured worker. Some people might heal faster than others, and some claimants may not be able to return to work at all. Life-altering injuries, like a spinal cord injury or a loss of vision, can happen to even experienced workers and keep you from returning to your previous job.

The following are some of the types of compensation that might be covered in a workers’ compensation claim:

  • Current medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Current partial lost income benefits
  • Ongoing disability payments if the worker cannot return to their job

As a workers’ compensation law firm in Manhattan, Shulman & Hill has the experience and skills to help you pursue every type of compensation you may be entitled to. We can negotiate aggressively on your behalf and if necessary, we will present your case to a judge to help you get the financial assistance you need.

Our Manhattan Personal Injury Lawyers Work With Our Workers’ Comp Team

New York does not allow employees to sue their employers following a workplace injury or illness. However, there might be options for seeking compensation in addition to workers’ compensation after a Manhattan on-the-job accident.

This may occur when a third party caused the accident and injuries. Victims hurt by someone else’s carelessness or recklessness may seek compensation to cover their medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. This may be possible through a personal injury lawsuit or liability insurance claim against the at-fault third party. For example, imagine:

  • A construction worker fell from a ladder on a Manhattan work site
  • The worker suffered a spinal injury and cannot return to their job
  • The fall occurred because of the property owner’s carelessness

This worker may qualify for workers’ comp through their employer, but they could also have a valid personal injury case against the property owner. Our firm can assess the case facts and explain the options to the injured worker and their family.

At Shulman & Hill, we have both workers’ compensation and personal injury departments. Our workers’ comp lawyers can partner closely with the personal injury team to share evidence.

This may be an advantage for our clients over many other firms because there are no worries about whether the attorneys are communicating with one another. Our team can often handle both of these cases and help our clients have successful outcomes in their cases.
