If you were injured on the job, your employer is required under workers’ compensation law to reimburse a portion of your wage loss and pay for medical treatment. If your work injury results in a temporary or permanent, partial or total disability, your employer may have to pay workers’ compensation benefits for a certain period of time.
You should see a doctor right away. Sometimes, an employer will claim that an employee’s injuries were caused outside of the job. Seeing a doctor immediately will improve your chances of recovering from the insurance carrier.
SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFITS
If you are totally disabled or your disability prevents you from working, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. You may have applied and been rejected for SSD benefits, but that doesn’t mean you are ineligible.
With the help of a New York SSD lawyer, you can prove to the Social Security Administration that you are unable to work. If your claim is legitimate and you are still denied benefits, your attorney can appeal the decision. These benefits are vital, so don’t give up just because you’ve been denied once. Let us help you get the benefits you deserve.
