Workers’ Compensation – BMCQ Law Helps You Get the Compensation You Deserve

You deserve representation from an experienced workers’ compensation law firm that fully understands your rights in New York State and is ready to work hard to get 100% of benefits that you deserve.

What Is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation provides injured workers with compensation benefits for loss of wages and covers medical treatment and care.
Below are the major components of workers’ compensation in New York:
The New York State Workers’ Compensation Board
This state agency processes the claims and makes determinations, through a judicial proceeding, on a variety of issues including whether an injure worker will receive compensation benefits and/or medical care and how much he or she will receive.
Compensation benefits are paid if the employer or insurance carrier agrees that the injury or illness is work-related.
If the employer or insurance carrier disputes the claim, no benefits are paid until the case is established after adjudication by an Administrative Law Judge of the NYS Worker’s Compensation Board.
The Role Of Disability Benefits
If an injured worker is not receiving benefits because the employer or insurance carrier is arguing that the injury is not job-related, he or she may be eligible for disability benefits in the meantime.
