If you’ve been injured at work, the most important thing is to get proper medical attention. Often an injured worker has questions regarding who will pay for their medical treatment and other health related expenses. If you’ve been injured while at work, expenses related to your treatment should be covered under workers’ compensation benefits.
What Should I Do If I Am Injured at Work in NY?
Aside from getting proper medical attention, the worker has an obligation to notify their employer at the earliest possible opportunity of the accident and that it did in fact occur at work. This notice to employer should be in writing, although oral statements to a supervisor sometimes suffice. If you need any help in navigating through what may seem a difficult process, hiring an experienced workers’ compensation attorney could help you and your family from losing out on valuable workers’ compensation benefits.
At Proner & Proner, if we accept your case, we will immediately file all necessary paperwork for to make the workers compensation process simpler, as we do for all of our clients.
What Should I Do If I Am Denied Workers’ Compensation Benefits in New York?
Being denied workers’ compensation benefits is always of great concern. Workers’ compensation benefits may be badly needed to pay for rent, food, and other living expenses. Sometimes, acceptance of a claim may be easily achieved by providing supplemental documentation. Other times a denial may be because an employer denies the accident was work-related or that the injuries did not take place at the work site. A hearing can be requested by the injured worker and an experienced attorney can often establish the claim, providing the worker with back wages and all health-related expenses.
