Brooklyn Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Some jobs may be more dangerous than others. Whether you are employed at an office job or on a construction site, there is always a risk of being injured. Most people go to work thinking about what their day will look like, yet it is possible to be hurt in an on-the-job accident in any line of work.

In New York State, if you are injured in a work-related accident, you may try to seek compensation for your losses by filing a workers’ compensation claim. It is important to know about the multiple factors that can potentially limit the amount of compensation you receive if you handle the process on your own. To optimize your chances of reaching an appropriate settlement, hire a Brooklyn workers’ compensation attorney. At Shulman & Hill, we will offer the representation you deserve and guide you along the way.

Brooklyn Workers’ Compensation Cases: When You Can File a Claim

If you are injured, you may require minimal to serious medical assistance or even hospitalization. Besides physical pain, you might have to deal with another stressful consequence of an injury – medical expenses. This is especially unpleasant if you are out of work while recovering from your injuries and temporarily unable to rely on your paycheck.

New York law requires employers to have workers’ compensation insurance, in order to cover various losses employees may incur if they are injured in work-related accidents. Insurance companies may not be motivated to offer fair compensation when they can.

This highlights one of the many reasons it is best to coordinate with an experienced law firm in Brooklyn after an accident. We are prepared to thoroughly investigate your case, gathering evidence to show your claim should be approved promptly. We can also ensure all paperwork is filed by the proper deadlines. A minor paperwork error could render your claim invalid if it delays the process.

What to do After a Brooklyn Work-Related Accident

Hiring a workers’ compensation lawyer in Brooklyn is not the only step you can take to maximize your chances of securing compensation after a work-related accident. In the immediate aftermath of an accident, it is best to report it to your supervisor or manager and seek medical attention immediately. If possible, getting statements from witnesses can be helpful. They can attest to the fact that you were injured while performing work-related tasks.

Seeking medical care is necessary even if you do not think that you have been injured. It is not uncommon for an injury to present itself days or even weeks after the accident. It is helpful to have documentation showing you sought care right away when filing a claim.

What Does Brooklyn Workers’ Compensation Cover?

Workers’ compensation may potentially cover your medical care. Our Brooklyn workers’ compensation lawyers will review your specific losses to determine how much compensation you can ask for when filing a claim.

If the amount you settle for does not fully cover all of your losses, it may be possible to seek additional compensation if another party’s negligence caused your accident. Identifying the parties responsible for compensating you often requires conducting an investigation. Our skilled attorneys at Shulman & Hill will have access to all the resources necessary to do so.

Negotiating With an Insurer: Why You May Need Help from a Lawyer

Our attorneys will not merely help you get your workers’ compensation claim approved in a timely manner. We will also negotiate with the insurance company to help you reach an appropriate settlement.

When negotiating with an insurance company, an attorney will know the strong points you have in your case and will use their experience and knowledge to get a proper settlement. It is likely that you have less experience negotiating with an insurance company, which they may take advantage of and deny a higher compensation.

Our attorneys understand the way most insurance companies operate. We can handle all major correspondence with the insurers, minimizing the risk of harming your claim. We will negotiate aggressively on your behalf until we receive an adequate offer from the company. Rejecting initial low settlements, our attorneys want to ensure you receive a truly fair amount that covers all of your losses.

We Handle the Workers’ Compensation Claims Process So You Do Not Have To

Negotiating with an insurance company is just one task the claims process may consist of. Seeking compensation after a work-related accident may also require completing and filing paperwork, coordinating with doctors, calculating your losses, and much more.

Handling tasks of this nature on your own from an injury can be draining, not to mention you are handling all of the issues that arose from the accident. We want to help you focus strictly on recovering mentally and physically. We can handle all aspects of the claims process for you, while making sure that you are thoroughly updated on our progress.
