Voluntary Removal Attorney In Albany
If you are out of work due to a temporary or permanent disability, you employer’s insurance carrier may claim you have voluntarily removed yourself from the workforce. If the workers’ compensation court agrees with this determination, you may lose your benefits.
At the Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, P.C., we help injured workers with workers’ compensation claims and disputes. We have the skill and experience to help you obtain — and keep — the benefits you need and deserve.
Voluntary Removal And Your Benefits
New York workers’ compensation law requires the injured worker with a partial disability to actively search for work within his restrictions. Failure to do so may result in a finding of voluntary removal from the labor market. In general, this means that if you are partially disabled, you bear a responsibility to actively seek work that you are physically capable of doing.
In many cases, however, insurance carriers will claim an injured worker is able to perform job duties that, in reality, he or she is not able to perform.
Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys understand the tactics used by employers and their insurance providers, and we are prepared to counter them. We can demonstrate to the court the true extent of your disability and how it impacts your potential in the labor market.
