Getting the workers' comp benefits you need and deserve

From the employee's side, a workplace injury is often a mixture of pain, medical treatment, time away from the job and recovery. From the employer's side, the issues are more about one thing: money.

When a New York worker is injured on the job, they are entitled to workers' compensation to pay for medical care and to replace a portion of their lost wages. This part of the safety net is crucial to working people, enabling them to get the care they need and to continue providing for themselves and their families.

A recent article at Business.com stresses that workers' compensation insurance is not an option for most employers. The required coverage protects the employer as well as the employee in cases of on-the-job injuries and occupational illnesses.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the article on a business site laments the fact that workers have the right to get representation in workers' comp cases, including in appeals. "Some workers may resort to consulting with a workers' compensation attorney to ensure that they receive benefits, particularly when claims are contested."

Yes, workers will often turn to an experienced attorney when workers' comp benefits are at stake. Those benefits can include money for a hospital stay, doctor's visits, surgeries, physical therapy, and lost wages. The benefits can quickly mount in situations in which the injuries are serious and time away from work is lengthy.

In these situations in which the stakes are high, you can rest assured that the insurer and employer will be represented when a Workers' Compensation Board decision is appealed. With the help of a Newburgh workers' comp attorney, you can level the playing field and fight for the benefits you need and deserve.
