Do I Have a Good Workers Compensation Case?

One of the first questions workers’ compensation clients often ask us is, “Do I have a good case?”

Every injury at work deserves an evaluation to ensure that you're receiving the maximum benefits under the New York State Workers’ Compensation Law. We take into account both the short-term and the long-term effects of the injury on your health and your ability to work. Sometimes, an injury may initially result in only a short time off work. However, that minor injury could evolve into a nagging concern that could ultimately lead you to be unable to go to work as long as you would normally have.

What may have looked like a simple case at the outset could turn into a much bigger case, in the end, depending on the facts and circumstances. Some of the questions we ask when determining a case strategy include:

  • What part of your body was injured?
  • How does it affect your day-to-day life?
  • How does it affect your ability to get to work or do the things you like to do after work?

For example, if you have a hand injury, it's going to be treated differently than an injury to your neck or your back. What may be a minor injury to one person, given their type of work, maybe a significant injury to someone else. At MCV Law, we take pride in listening and then helping you with a strategy to maximize your recovery and get your life back. Complete this simple online form today to request your free consultation.
