Workplace injuries, especially ones that cause lost wages, can be devastating to the working families of New York.

But you do not have to worry.

What is Workers’ Compensation?


New York takes care of its workers by mandating that employers provide workers’ compensation benefits, which cover medical costs and lost wages for employees injured on the job. Because sometimes, even the hardest working New Yorkers, who love to work, may find it impossible to go back to work altogether, or in the same capacity after an on-the-job injury.

Unfortunately, even though the law requires employers to maintain workers’ compensation insurance, too often workers have a hard time getting the benefits to which they are legally entitled.

The New York workers’ compensation lawyers at Daniella Levi & Associates, PC understand the long-lasting effects of on-the-job injuries on the injured workers and their families. Our legal team is here to help you get the benefits to which you are legally entitled.

  • Workers in all employment conducted for profit;

Benefits You Are Owed

Too many workers are unfairly denied the workers’ compensation benefits they desperately need. Taking legal action can help workers gain access to their entitled benefits.

To figure out the number of benefits, we first need to look at the extent of your injury.

Disability Criteria

There are four (4) disability classifications:

This category means that the injured worker’s wage-earning capacity is lost totally, but only on a temporary basis

How Much Can You Claim in Benefits?

When determining the number of weekly benefits, the Administrative Law Judge looks at your gross average weekly wage one (1) year prior to your work-related injury.

  • An injured worker typically receives two-thirds of their gross average weekly wage every week while they are off work due to their injuries.
  • The state of New York, every year, sets the top limit of average weekly wage that a worker can receive, no matter how much money they make in the average week. Highly-paid workers may have their benefit lowered to the state-mandated average weekly wage.

How we work for you


To help fight and win your claim we will:

  • Explain to you in easy-to-understand terms how the Workers’ Compensation laws apply to employees in New York and what types of benefits you deserve.
  • Help to gather all of the appropriate documentation that we’ll need to successfully work a case. This will include accident reports, medical records, and witness statements.
  • Review your payroll with you and explain to you how your average weekly wage will be calculated based on your individual work schedule and earnings.
  • If needed, prepare you to testify at hearings, along with any witnesses required to prove your claim.
  • Take depositions from the doctors, physician assistants, and nurses that treat you as well as medical experts to prove your disability is related to a work injury.
  • Ensure all of your medical bills get paid relating to your work-related injury.
  • Negotiate with the employer’s insurance company for a fair settlement. We want to make sure that you are fully compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, and loss of future earnings.

Injured at Work?

Common Work-Related Injuries


Workers’ compensation claims range from the fairly minor issues which require you to be out of work for a few days. Other injuries can be very serious and may disable a person for life or even result in a fatality.

Here are some of the most common work-related injuries according to OSHA:

  • Broken bones due to falls.
  • Burns.
  • Knee injuries such as dislocated knees or torn ACL.
  • Shoulder injuries like rotator cuff tears or dislocated shoulders.
  • Overexertion injuries cause pulled muscles.
  • Lung injuries from inhaling toxic fumes.
  • Spinal cord injuries in the neck and back, and degenerative disc disease caused by years of repetitive movement.

If you suffered any of these injuries on a construction site, a hospital, a school, at the supermarket or driving a truck you may be eligible for workers compensation benefits such as medical treatment, cost of travel to and from medical appointments, prescriptions, lost wages and lump sum payments.

Compensation

Statute of Limitations


You only have a certain amount of time to file your workers’ compensation claim after your injury. If you wait too long, you’ll be unable to make a claim. An injured worker has two (2) years from the date of accident or date of disablement to file a claim for compensation.
