When an injury or illness has left you unable to work, you’re facing an uncertain future. How will you access the medical care you need? How will you pay your rent and continue to put food on the table? What happens if you’re faced with unexpected expenses?
At O’Connor Law, we know that workers’ compensation and Social Security disability benefits play a vital role in providing a sense of financial stability when disaster strikes. Let us alleviate some of your fear and anxiety by helping you to access the benefits you need for yourself and your family.
We’ll Take Care of You After a Workplace Accident
You’ve worked hard your whole life, and we believe you deserve to be taken care of in your time of need. If you’ve been hurt in a work-related accident or are struggling with the effects of a repetitive stress injury related to your employment, the New York workers’ compensation system provides vital medical care and wage replacement benefits.
Although some workers’ comp claims are settled quickly, cases involving serious injuries or substantial time missed from work can be quite complex. If your employer is contesting the seriousness of your injuries, we can document your condition and appeal your denial with the Workers’ Compensation Board.
When You Need Disability Benefits, We Can Help
Social Security disability benefits provide monthly cash payments to individuals who suffer from serious medical conditions limiting their ability to work full-time. The program is funded by the Social Security taxes paid by all part-time and full-time workers.
If your condition has left you unable to work, we can assist you in preparing your initial application for benefits or navigating the appeals process. Don’t let small mistakes or simple omissions jeopardize your eligibility for the benefits you’ve been counting on.

At O’Connor Law, we take pride in our empathic and holistic approach to helping clients navigate one of the most challenging times in their lives. We’ll clearly explain your options and provide regular status updates on your case so you can make informed decisions about what happens next.
