Skilled Injury Lawyers Proner & Proner Explore All Options To Help NYC Work Accident Victims Get The Workers’ Compensation Benefits They Deserve
If you’ve been injured at work, the most important thing is to get proper medical attention. Often, injured workers have questions about who will pay for their medical treatment and other health-related expenses. If you’ve been injured while at work, all expenses related to your treatment should be covered by NYC’s workers’ compensation benefits.
In most cases, NYC workers’ compensation benefits should be available as long as:
Workers’ compensation benefits are available even if you or a co-worker caused the accident in which you were injured. If the injured worker sustained the injury at work, the claim should be covered under workers’ compensation regardless of fault. However, fault can be important in work accident cases.
Sometimes, you might be entitled to file a third-party lawsuit for compensation that goes above and beyond your workers’ compensation benefits—which only covers about 2/3 of your lost wages and your medical bills. A third-party claim against a non-employer, such as the property owner or a subcontractor, can give you the right to compensation for:
- All lost wages,
- Pain and suffering,
- Emotional distress,
- And more.

Frequently Asked Questions About NYC Workers’ Compensation Claims
Aside from getting proper medical attention, you also have an obligation to notify your employer (or supervisor) at the earliest possible opportunity. Tell your employer about the accident, making clear that it occurred at work. This notice should be in writing, and provided within 30 days of the accident. If you need any help in navigating through what may seem a difficult process, hiring an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help prevent you and your family from losing out on valuable workers’ compensation benefits.
When the skilled labor accident lawyers at Proner & Proner accept your case, we will immediately file all necessary paperwork to simplify the NYC workers’ compensation process—which is our key goal for all of our clients.
If your workers’ compensation benefits were denied, this should immediately raise a red flag and is a sign that you should contact a lawyer. We know that you need your workers’ compensation benefits to pay for rent, food, and other living expenses. Sometimes, getting your claim accepted can be achieved by simply providing supplemental documentation to the insurance board. In other cases, you might not know that the denial was based on:
– Your employer’s denial that the accident was work-related,
– Your employer’s statements that you weren’t really injured in the work accident.
Our experienced lawyers will investigate, request a hearing and work to establish the validity of your claim. If successful, your workers’ compensation benefits will include your back wages and all health-related expenses incurred prior to the claim’s approval.
