In addition to handling third-party claims, we can analyze current and past collective bargaining agreements to determine appropriate pay scales, compensation for lost wages, medical benefits and regulations regarding light or restricted duty. We also represent workers forced to go back to work too early for jobs they cannot physically perform.
The firm hires economists to analyze and project future losses from losing benefits when workers are seriously injured. We strive to obtain the maximum compensation and benefits you can receive.Call a New York City Workers Union Injury Lawyer
