Work-Related Knee, Shoulder & Elbow Injuries
Get Help from Our New York Workers Comp Attorneys
It is a fact that individuals living and working in the USA spend approximately
2/3 of their waking hours at work. This dedication to hard work and production
is what makes the country great. And yet, there are cases in which the
individual is injured in the workplace and then has trouble getting their
fair claim for compensation paid. Each circumstance is different, and
it is critical to get your workers' compensation evaluated by a lawyer
as quickly as possible after the work-related injury.
At Katz, Leidman, Freund & Herman, the
workers' compensation team is dedicated to assisting injured workers to get the compensation
they deserve for the injuries sustained on the job. Knee, shoulder and
elbow injuries are common in almost all types of jobs, as slipping and
falling can happen almost anywhere. When a fall occurs, it is often the
knee, shoulder or elbow that is damaged, and these injuries can be extremely
painful and take many months or even longer to heal. Some injuries are
so severe that the body never fully recovers from the accident.
Understanding Your Rights Under the Law
When injured at work, New York laws provide for compensation through Workers'
Compensation. In a perfect world, this would work simply and easily. However,
government agencies can be difficult to deal with, and their claim forms
and requirements can be overwhelming and almost impossible to understand.
With the help of a workers' compensation attorney from Katz, Leidman,
Freund & Herman, your claim can be correctly filed and you will not
miss out on potential claims that could be made, if you were aware of
the laws regarding compensation and injured workers.
You are protected by the law, true. But having an attorney fighting to
seek maximum compensation for damages could improve the likelihood that
you get what you really deserve in a financial settlement, judgment or
in monetary compensation for your injuries.
