Do You Have A Workers’ Compensation Claim?
If you have any doubt as to whether you have a work accident injury that warrants an application for workers’ compensation benefits, you need to do three things as quickly as possible.
- Report your injury to your employer. If you do not report your injury within 30 days, your claim for workers’ compensation benefits may be barred.
- Seek medical attention as quickly as possible.
- Contact the law firm of Rosado, Apat & Dudley, LLP, to schedule your free initial consultation.
Our attorneys have nearly 75 years of combined experience, in-depth knowledge of the workers’ compensation process and a track record of success for our clients throughout New York, and we can help you secure the full and fair compensation you need for your injuries.
The Majority Of Work Injuries Are Eligible For Compensation
Do not be fooled by your employer, their insurance company or their attorneys — when you are injured on the job, you are almost always entitled to full compensation. They have legal representation, and so should you, to ensure you are treated fairly under the law.
Whatever the cause of your accident — whether it was a fall from a height, a back injury caused by lifting heavy objects, a car accident or some other event — our attorneys will investigate the accident and your injuries, working closely with your medical providers to obtain all of your records. In certain situations, you may be able to bring what is known as a third-party claim against someone other than your employer for additional damages.
Even Undocumented Workers Have Protections
Many undocumented workers believe they are unprotected under state labor laws. However, there are several protections in place to protect your rights and your health. Our attorneys can sit you down for a free consultation to determine what you may be entitled to receive. We are also experienced in immigration law — so we can offer comprehensive counsel that takes your immigration status into account.
