Filing Your Workers Compensation Claim

New York Workers Compensation Lawyer

Understanding your rights to file New York workers compensation claims

Workers compensation is a benefit that has been available to New York employees since 1913. If you as a worker in virtually any industry suffer an on-the-job injury, it is your right to file a claim — and your employer’s responsibility to carry the insurance that ensures the benefits are available when you need them.

If you have been injured, do not delay in starting the workers compensation claims procedure. And if you feel you will need help or representation, call a Brooklyn workers compensation lawyer at Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP for legal counsel. We have more than 20 years of experience helping people ensure that their claims are filled out correctly and completely and are filed on time.
We help cut through the claims process confusion

If you have sustained an injury at work, you must:

Report your injury to your employer immediately. The longer you wait, the more difficult it may be to get your benefits. You have up to 20 days from the date of the accident or, in cases where the injury is not immediately obvious, from the time your physician indicated your injury is work-related.
Put the report in writing. A verbal report can be misconstrued, forgotten or misinterpreted. A paper trail is evidence.

See the doctor. In cases of serious injuries that require immediate attention, you should get an ambulance or quick transport to an emergency room. Otherwise, get to your doctor as soon as possible and have him or her fill out a report so you can start the workers comp claim process.

In addition to explaining and assisting you with the claims process, there are other ways your Bisogno & Meyerson Brooklyn and Staten Island workers compensation lawyers can help you. Trade workers have come to depend on our counsel when they have questions about their employment or union status. Both documented and undocumented workers have workers compensation rights. We speak Spanish, French, French and Portuguese, and can help them understand their rights and file their claims.

As personal injury lawyers, we can also advise you of all avenues of compensation — including third-party and personal injury claims.
