For the vast majority of people in America, the ability to work is essential to survival and providing for their families. Suffering a serious injury or illness that prevents you from being able to work can cause a great deal of anxiety. Worry about how to pay medical bills, the length of time away from work and even putting food on the table for your family can be stressful, and the legal process itself can be extremely complex. It is important to work with an experienced attorney who can help you obtain the benefits you need.

Do Not Wait To File Your Claim
After an accident or illness, it is essential to let your employer know about the situation and contact an attorney immediately. As a New York employee, you are most likely eligible for workers' compensation benefits, but these benefits may be lost or significantly affected if you wait too long to file a claim.
