Last week on the blog we talked about the Section 32 waiver agreement. This lump sum payout may be the perfect resolution to some New Yorkers' workers' compensation claims, but for others, it may not be the right move to ensure that they have the resources they need to make ends meet and obtain adequate medical treatment while they focus on recovering and getting back to work. The truth of the matter is that you need to choose a route that is right for you. Of course, the first step in doing that is having all the information you need to make the decisions that support your best interests.
At our law firm, we strive make sure our clients are making fully informed decisions. We educate them as to the law and how it applies to their unique set of circumstances, but we also inform our clients about their likelihood of succeeding on a claim given the evidence in hand. This way, we can work together to identify a legal strategy that seeks to strengthen a case and to reach a favorable resolution.
