Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in New York City

What is Workers’ Compensation?

If you have been injured or became ill while performing work as an employee, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. It is important to know your rights so that you can be sure you will receive all of the appropriate medical care and compensation due to you.

If you’ve been injured at work, whether or not you have a good relationship with your employer, you may need a law firm to help you get the compensation you are entitled to under the law in your particular state, whether that’s New York, New Jersey or any other state. Proner & Proner will also help with third party liability claims.

Workers’ Compensation Claims Assistance in NYC

Every state has a unique set of rules for documenting workers’ compensation claims. Proner & Proner is currently representing injured workers in multiple state workers’ compensation claims and we can advise you upon your request. Proner & Proner can help you fill out all necessary forms and make sure you get the compensation you deserve. There is no limitation on the type of accident that may be covered under a workers’ compensation claim.

The claims that we typically hear about are often those that take place in the most dangerous of industries, like the construction trade. We have successfully represented injured workers who fell because of improper scaffolding, had slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents, burns, loss of hearing and fractures.

As long as somebody is injured at work, their claim should be covered under workers’ compensation. The injured worker does not need to be concerned about who is at fault for the accident. If the injured worker sustained the injury at work, the claim should be covered under workers’ compensation regardless of fault.
