When you have been injured on the job, workers' compensation benefits can mean the difference between supporting your family and enduring serious financial problems. That is why the lawyers at Dennis Kenny Law, take your workers' compensation case so seriously. For nearly 15 years, we have been fighting hard to get benefits for injured workers throughout New York state.
Evaluating Your Case For The Workers' Compensation Benefits You Deserve
When our lawyers take your case, we thoroughly investigate all of the facts and laws involved. Our goal is to make sure that you get the workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to and any additional benefits for which you may be eligible. To do so, we look at the following:
- The type of employment you have had or are trained to have
- The type of injury or condition that has caused your disability
- The length of time the disability has lasted
- The circumstances that led to any disabling injury
- Your income before and after the disability
Because of our years of experience and knowledge of the law, we are able to direct you to the best options for financial relief. You may have more options than you think — some clients also qualify for Social Security Disability benefits in addition to workers' compensation benefits. If your injuries were caused by a third party, you can file a personal injury claim. (We work with an attorney who is of counsel to our firm in these matters.)
Benefits Suspended? Quick Action Is Required.
When your workers' compensation benefits have been suspended, it is important to act quickly. In New York, it is getting more and more difficult to schedule a prompt workers' compensation hearing. But when your workers' compensation benefits have been suspended, it is still possible to get help quickly. The workers' compensation attorneys at Dennis Kenny Law, use the latest legal strategies to protect injured workers throughout the Albany area.
If your benefits are reduced or suspended based on an independent medical exam (IME), we can take quick action. We can ask the judge to direct the insurance carrier to reinstate payments immediately, so that the carrier cannot stop, suspend or reduce your payments until a hearing occurs.
