When after all your hard work and commitment to the job you are injured abruptly in a workplace accident, it can have devastating consequences for you, your family and your future employment prospects. The distressing aftermath of a workplace injury can leave you feeling vulnerable and alone.
The dedicated attorneys at Marcote & Associates, P.C. can help you obtain the compensation for your injuries or illness that you rightfully deserve, including:
We help you pursue any benefits you are entitled to under the law.
You are entitled to workers’ compensation for an injury or illness that occurred at your workplace or while you were engaged in a work-related activity, regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job. Even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence, you can still receive the help you need through workers’ comp benefits.
When you accept a workers’ compensation payment, you forfeit your right to pursue other remedies against a negligent employer. If your employer has acted negligently, you may deserve an award for pain and suffering and other damages not granted through a workers’ comp claim. Our attorneys carefully review your case to determine how you can best recover the compensation you deserve.
If your workers’ compensation claim is unfairly denied, you have only a short window of opportunity to appeal the unjust decision. We can help you maneuver through the overwhelming bureaucratic process of appealing to the New York workers’ compensation board.
From our Hicksville, New York office, Marcote & Associates, P.C. helps employees throughout New York file workers’ compensation claims and appeal workers’ comp denials. To schedule a consultation with our dedicated workers’ compensation attorneys, call us at 516-613-4148 or contact us online.
