Receive The Workers' Compensation Settlement You Deserve

New York's workers' compensation laws are changing. As insurance company lobbyists put more pressure on the legislature, it becomes more difficult for injured people to gain the workers' compensation benefits they depend on. This is most clearly seen in the way that people with permanent partial disabilities are treated under the new workers' compensation laws.

At the Hudson Valley-area Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, P.C., our attorneys are not deterred by changes in the law. You still have rights under New York's workers' compensation laws — we fight to assert those rights and protect your interests.

A Workers' Comp Settlement May Be An Option For You

Getting the workers' compensation benefits you deserve can be a challenge. However, you do have options. One of these options is a workers' compensation settlement — accepting your workers' compensation benefits in one lump-sum amount instead of putting up with the frustration of navigating the workers' compensation system.

Injured workers who decide that a workers' compensation settlement is the right option for them may still be able to file for Social Security Disability benefits. They may also be able to take legal action against a third party by filing a personal injury claim in civil court. (We work with an attorney who is of counsel to our firm in these matters.) After receiving a workers' compensation settlement, you may also be able to work part-time and earn up to $940 a month. You may also be eligible for Medicare.

It is important, however, to work with an experienced lawyer who knows exactly how to structure your workers' compensation settlement to optimize your results. At Dennis Kenny Law, we will help you make the right decisions so that you can get the financial support you need after a workplace injury.
