If you are injured at work, you are entitled to workers compensation under New York law, but if you didn’t follow the process, you may find your company declines your compensation claim.
All procedures are subject to state laws so make sure you know them. When filing a claim all parts must be submitted without delay so you will be compensated quickly. The form is a C-3 compensation claim form. You must complete this as soon as possible after you notify your employer.
You must report your work-related injury to your employer even if you feel afraid or insecure about your job. The company has an insurance policy to ensure that employees do not suffer as a result of work.
Get medical care and start treatment as soon as possible. If you don’t go to the doctor your employer may say that the injury did not happen at work or it may not be serious enough to have a compensation award. Your company does not want to pay out compensation so you will be asked to demonstrate how you were hurt.
Follow the instructions of the insurance company. Remember you might have to visit an independent physician to satisfy their requirement. Make sure you have reports that support your claim. Writing precise descriptions of the events and the injury will support your case.
Keep copies of every form you’ve filled out. Write down exactly how you were injured at work. A successful worker’s compensation claim rests upon the information you provide. Your employer might try to deny liability so the insurance company won’t have to payout. It is always best to work with a lawyer to avoid delays and disappointment.
A lawyer will ensure you work to the law as they understand workers compensation legislation. A compensation claim lawyer is trained to help you make claims to counter the agony of an accident. Jamaica’s Compensation Lawyers, Fox and Gold make sure you are not left out of pocket and you are not shortchanged.
