New York Workers’ Compensation Claim Denial Attorney

Workers’ compensation laws were enacted to ensure that workers receive medical care and compensation for their lost wages after an on-the-job accident. As long as the accident occurred at work or while you were performing the duties of your job (for example, driving for work), you should be able to receive workers’ compensation for your injuries.

But that does not guarantee you won’t have problems getting the compensation you deserve. Some employers will fight tooth and nail to prevent employees from accessing workers’ compensation after a construction accident. That’s because the company’s workers’ compensation rates can go up or down depending upon the company’s recent claim history and the frequency and cost of claims.

Your employer may get other employees to testify against you. The employer may fail to file appropriate paperwork, or may say you never notified them of your injury. They may try to blame your injury on activities you were doing outside of work, saying your injury was not job related.

At the law firm of Oresky & Associates, PLLC., we help injured workers obtain workers compensation benefits. Our investigation will help you and your Workers’ Compensation attorney prove your case.
