Helping injured New York workers secure workers' compensation benefits

Every year, hundreds of thousands of workers across the U.S. are affected by injuries and medical conditions that result from a workplace accident or dangerous or toxic workplace conditions. In cases where these painful injuries and debilitating conditions inhibit a worker's ability to perform assigned duties, he or she may choose to file a workers' compensation claim.

Workers' compensation exists to help provide financial assistance to injured workers while they recover from their injuries. To date, during 2015 alone, more than 12,600 claims for workers' compensation benefits have been filed in New York State. However, of these claims, only roughly 38 percent resulted in the payout of benefits.

The truth is that it's not in the best interests of an employer or an employer's insurance company to pay workers' compensation benefits. Consequently, a claim may be denied for numerous reasons including incomplete information, insufficient proof of injury, diagnosis by an unapproved medical provider and alleged discrepancies in accident and medical reports and records.

In general, the workers' compensation process is incredibly complex and many workers experience difficulties when attempting to recover benefits. For these reasons, it's important to consider hiring an attorney who specializes in workers' compensation matters. An attorney can assist with every step of the process and help ensure that an individual follows proper protocols, submits a complete claim and provides sufficient documentation proving that an injury occurred at work or while performing work-related duties.

For workers in New York State, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, P.C. have extensive knowledge of the workers' compensation process and related laws. We can answer questions, offer advice and provide strong legal advocacy as an individual works to secure the benefits to which he or she is entitled. Additionally, we can assist in cases where a claim has been denied or where an insurance provider attempts to reduce or stop paying benefits.
