If you’ve been hurt at work, it’s natural to want to know how much your workers’ compensation claim is worth. However, the answer to this question depends on several factors.
Some of the factors that will affect the value of your workers’ compensation claim in New York include:
If your injuries are minor and you’ve missed little or no work, you can most likely handle your claim without an attorney. However, if you require significant medical care, have missed several weeks of work, or have been left with a permanent disability, an experienced workers’ compensation attorney can ensure that you receive the maximum possible benefits by documenting your condition and negotiating with the insurer on your behalf.
