Don't Wait Until It's Too Late. Contact MCV Law's Workers' Compensation Lawyers near Ithaca, NY Today.
By law, you have 30 days from the day of your injury or when you know your sickness was from your job to report the injury or illness to your employer. A Workers' Compensation claim must also be filed within 2 years.
If you don't notify your employer and file a claim within the above time frame, you're at serious risk of getting Workers' Compensation benefits denied.
The initial Workers Comp claim can make the difference between getting Workers' Comp benefits approved or denied.
Even if your Workers' Compensation benefits are first approved, you may run in to problems continuing to get benefits or getting certain medical care covered depending on the information provided in your initial Workers' Compensation claim. Considering this, it's important to talk with a Workers' Compensation lawyer sooner rather than later.
"I was frustrated with the insurance company denying my claim. Your advice put me at ease and you made the process of helping me get taken care of really easy. I don't think I would have prevailed had it not been for you.
I would recommend your firm to anyone with a contested Workers' Comp claim."
