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.
Our dedication to our clients is present from the initial filing through the appeals process. When our clients have had their initial workers' compensation claim denied, we diligently work to uncover new evidence that may lead to a reversed decision. This requires extensive legal know-how, in addition to strong advocacy skills, both of which our legal team possesses.
Workers' compensation benefits can prove to be a lifesaver for those who have been injured in a workplace accident. Figuring out how to obtain those benefits can be stressful, though, particularly to those who are frustrated by the legal system. This is why if you have suffered a workplace injury, you should consider having a legal ally on your side who can guide you through the process and make compelling arguments in your favor. By doing so, you may increase your chances of succeeding on your claim and recovering the benefits you need. We have helped numerous New Yorkers fight for what they deserve, and we look forward to doing the same for the next injured worker who comes through our door.
