Injured workers and securing workers’ compensation benefits for pre-existing conditions

While some jobs are inherently more dangerous than others, every worker is at risk of suffering an injury while on the job. From a construction worker who falls from scaffolding and suffers a traumatic brain injury to an office worker who develops carpal tunnel syndrome from typing at a computer all day, every job has its own set of dangers and hazards.

Thankfully, employers in New York State are required to obtain workers’ compensation coverage. This means that, in the event a worker suffers a work-related injury, he or she can file a workers’ compensation claim to secure benefits to pay for medical bills, a portion of lost wages and disability. Unfortunately, injured workers who attempt to obtain workers’ comp benefits often experience their fair share of confusion, discouragement and frustration.

At the Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, our attorneys understand the negative impact that a work injury can have on an individual’s life as well as the lives of a worker’s family members. In addition to excruciating physical pain, an individual may also be rendered partially or fully disabled. As medical bills pile up and finances run low, an injured worker and his or her dependants are likely to experience serious financial hardships that can snowball and be difficult to impossible to overcome.

Our workers’ compensation attorneys understand what’s at stake and fight to win injured workers the maximum amount and duration of benefits. This includes injury claims related to pre-existing conditions as old work injuries or another documented disability or condition can easily be re-injured and aggravated at work.

At the Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, we help obtain benefits for injured workers whose claims were originally denied for a number of reasons including denial based on a pre-existing condition. We have a deep knowledge of New York’s workers’ compensation laws and aren’t afraid to take on employers and insurance companies who attempt to prevent workers from claiming the benefits and financial assistance to which they and their family members are entitled.
