ON YOUR SIDE
Helping You Win the Workers’ Comp Benefits You Are Owed
If you have been injured while on the job in New York, you are entitled to recover the maximum amount of compensation allowable under New York’s state workers’ compensation system. Unfortunately, however, the process of obtaining workers’ compensation benefits can be complicated and too many injured workers are wrongfully denied benefits, experience unnecessary delays, or do not receive the full amounts of benefits they deserve.
The good news is that the workers’ compensation attorneys of Battiloro Law are here to help. At Battiloro Law, we are devoted to helping workers like you win compensation for your medical care and weekly benefits in full and with minimal delay. We have built up an impressive track record of success in winning workers’ compensation benefits for all types of workplace accidents and injuries, including:

Whether you have suffered a relatively minor sprained wrist or are suffering from life-threatening mesothelioma, you have the right to proper compensation to cover your injury-related costs and losses. The workers’ compensation attorneys at Battiloro Law will guide you through the often confusing path of exercising your right to obtain the benefits you and your family need.
How We Help Workers Win Benefits
When you contact one of the experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Battiloro Law, we will immediately assess your situation to determine whether we can help, and, if we can, will assist you in filing your claim. If your claim has already been denied, we will appeal your denial and will negotiate with your employer and/or their insurers to get the workers compensation benefits that you are rightfully owed under the laws of New York.
Do I need to work with a attorney to obtain workers’ compensation benefits in New York?
No matter what type of legal issue you are facing, you are never required to work with an attorney. In fact, we often see criminal defendants who represent themselves, but this rarely works out in their favor. While workers may choose to pursue benefits on their own, employers, insurers, and their attorneys will often use a worker’s lack of knowledge of their rights under the law against them. By working with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney, you will have a trusted counsel who has the knowledge of the relevant law, procedures, and tactics used by defendants and who can stand up for your rights and forcefully demand the benefits you are owed.
What are my options if my workers’ compensation benefits were denied?
Many legitimately injured workers are surprised to learn that their claim for workers’ compensation benefits was partially or fully denied. However, a denial is not the final say in your case. Instead, you can follow the appeals process set out by the Workers’ Compensation Board and have a judge review your case. If the judge still denies your claim, you can appeal that decision with the courts. The hearings and appeals process can be complicated, however, so it is important to have the assistance of a knowledgeable attorney throughout this process to ensure the best possible results. At Battiloro Law, we will do whatever it takes – including taking your case to trial in the civil court – to win the justice you deserve.
