Even with careful planning and savings, most New Yorkers simply don’t have the funds necessary to stay financially stable if a work accident causes them serious harm. Although workers’ compensation does exist to help cover medical expenses, what happens in the long term?construction employees at building site

Social Security isn’t just for those who have retired. In fact, a Social Security Disability or Social Security Income claim could provide a disabled worker with the payments they need to cover their everyday expenses. But it’s not easy to be approved for those payments.

Each year, around 65% of all SSD or SSI claims are denied leaving millions of people who deserve assistance in a financial bind. But just because a denial is received doesn’t mean that their claim wasn’t valid.

Research has shown that the application process is so detailed that applicants who work with a qualified attorney who is familiar with this section of the law are more likely to have their claim approved the first time that it is submitted. If a denial is received, it is still possible to file an appeal but this process is also long and difficult and may require a hearing.

Our law firm has helped hundreds of SSD and SSI applicants in the past and we can help you. Contact us today to learn more.

Lawyer – Holding Negligent Parties Responsible

Workers’ Compensation & Personal Injury Lawyer Helping Work Accident Victims

  • Brian Mittman Voted Attorney Of The Year By Institute For Jewish Humanities

  • Dedicated To Client Satisfaction

  • Fighting For The Best Outcome Possible For Each Client

Despite the hard work and continued efforts of OSHA and the Department of Buildings, work accidents still happen the alarming regularity. Most employees don’t think about what they can do after a work accident to regain compensation until after they’ve been hurt and understandably so. Unfortunately, at the point, handling the stress of fighting for workers compensation coverage is something that few patients need to deal with while they deal with physical, emotional, and financial pain.

Since 1933 our law firm has been helping injured workers get back on their feet by not only guiding them through the workers’ compensation claim process but also by helping to identify other legal options they could pursue.

In many cases, it is possible to file a personal injury lawsuit along with the workers’ compensation claim against the party whose negligence caused the worker to be injured. This lawsuit can help to fully cover all medical expenses, both past and future, lost wages, physical pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Law Firm – You Aren’t Just Another Case To Us

Construction Accident Lawyers Guiding Victims After An Accident

  • Former Clients Hurt In Crane, Heavy Machinery, Trench, Scaffolding Accidents, & More

  • Focused On Excellent Communication

  • Voted Top Construction Accident Law Firm By Legal Herald

New York is constantly growing and changing and the only for that to happen is for the construction industry to do its job. Thousands of people are employed as construction workers and each day they face dangers like:

  • electrocution
  • scaffolding accidents
  • falling objects
  • slip and fall accidents
  • heavy machinery accidents
  • sharp objects

The injuries that are sustained in these accidents often require time away from work and extensive medical care. Thankfully, the law requires most employers to obtain workers’ compensation insurance coverage so that their employees don’t have to worry about paying for those medical treatments. Unfortunately, just because coverage is offered doesn’t mean that it will be approved.

Our legal team has focused on work injury and workers’ compensation law for decades and we believe that every injured worker deserves to be covered under their employer’s policy. We can help with filing the initial claim or, if the initial claim has already been denied, we can guide our clients through the appeals process. Our goal is to make sure our clients feel that they are supported every step of the way and that they fully understand what is happening with their case.
