What should I know about workers' comp for occupational disease?

New York State workers who suffer from an occupational disease should know that they can get workers' compensation benefits, just as a worker who suffered a physical injury can. However, it is imperative to understand that there are certain differences to consider when seeking those benefits. With an occupational disease, it must be an issue that has come about because of exposure to certain conditions on the job. It is vital to remember that the disease is required to have been produced naturally from the occupation itself.

What if my New York workers' compensation claim is controverted?

People who are injured in a workplace accident will expect that their workers' compensation claim will be approved, and they will receive the benefits they are entitled to for treatment and wage coverage as they try to recover. However, not all cases are immediately accepted at face value by the insurance company, and they will controvert a claim. When a claim is controverted (denied) and the worker has legitimate injuries stemming from the work he or she was doing, it is important to know when this might take place and what to do about it.
