The recent story of a police officer from New York who was ultimately denied benefits when the court and an appeals panel determined none of his injuries or health conditions were due to his job in law enforcement brings to light one reason an experienced workers compensation attorney is necessary for your peace of mind.
Due to the complexities of the workers compensation system in New York and its laws, you have to have your ducks in a row and be ready to tackle the process in front of you. Being injured on the job or suffering health consequences related to work can be a difficult process to navigate, especially if your claims are contested.
With an experienced workers compensation attorney on your side, you will have already discussed the events that have occurred with someone in the know if the compensation laws. This will give you the peace of mind you are protecting your rights and will not have to endure the legal process alone. Our office offers free legal consultations to discuss your injuries and on the job accident so you’ll have the proper guidance about going forward with your claim for benefits.
When your injury or health issue is particularly complicated and your claim is denied, you should seek the counsel of a qualified attorney rather than give up your rights as an injured worker. It is also important to not delay speaking with an attorney as this can work against your claim for benefits. Time is of the essence when dealing with work-related injuries.
