In 2007, there were a number of significant changes to New York workers' compensation law. If you have been injured on the job, it is important to have an advocate on your side who understands the nuances of these laws.
At the Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, P.C., we have an in-depth understanding of New York workers' compensation statutes and keep up-to-date on all changes in the law. We can help you pursue maximum compensation for your workplace injury.
How Do The New Laws Affect You?
If you were injured prior to the spring of 2007, your case will be governed by the old workers' compensation laws. If your workplace injury happened after that date, your case will be affected by the new laws.
The 2007 legislation impacted injured workers in significant ways:
- Lifetime benefits are now only available to those with permanent total disabilities.
- Injured workers with non-extremity injures are now subject to specific benefit caps.
Our attorneys will carefully review all the facts of your case to determine the best course of legal action. We will guide you through all stages of the process and devise a strategy aimed at making the new laws work in your favor.
