If you have been injured on the job, you must contend with a number of recent changes to New York workers' compensation law, including caps on benefits. Since this is an evolving area of law, it is important to have an attorney on your side who keeps up-to-date on all of the relevant legislation and case law.
At the Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, P.C., we have helped numerous injured workers with a wide range of workers' compensation issues. We know the law and we are prepared to help you pursue the compensation you need and deserve.
How Will Caps On Benefits Affect You?
Under the new legislation, the injured worker who is permanently partially disabled will not receive lifetime wage compensation.
This means benefit caps will be enforced, leaving many with permanent and temporary disabilities struggling to make ends meet.
If you are disabled and are contending with benefit caps, it is important to have an experienced workers' compensation attorney on your side.
Our lawyers understand the laws and keep up-to-date on all changes that affect our clients. We will work to help you obtain the maximum compensation available under the law.
Consider All Sources Of Compensation
The existence of workers' compensation benefit caps makes it even more important to explore all potential sources of compensation. We also handle Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims for those who are unable to work due to disability. If your workplace injury was caused by a negligent third party (not your employer,) we can also help you pursue a personal injury claim. We work as co-counsel with other trusted lawyers in those cases. In all cases, helping you and your family through this difficult time is our highest priority.
