Hiring a Workers’ Compensation Attorney

On the job injuries create difficult situations for all the parties involved to sort out and handle, as they are often confusing and stressful. However, you can enlist the guidance of a reputable workers’ compensation attorney to ease the process and to make sure that you receive adequate compensation for your losses. If you or someone you know has been injured on the job, contact the workers’ compensation attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers, LLP NY today. Our team of workers’ compensation professionals has the knowledge and experience to offer you quality legal services.

No matter the circumstances of your particular workers’ compensation claim, you are entitled to enlist legal guidance. In the event that your injuries are extensive and severe enough to be permanently life-altering, a workers’ compensation attorney will be able to ensure that you receive the proper medical care and compensation benefits that you are entitled to. In the event that the injuries you have incurred will keep you out of work permanently, a workers’ compensation attorney can lead you in the right direction with securing your Social Security benefits.

Hiring a workers’ compensation attorney is also a good idea in the event that there is any dispute between you, your employer, or their insurance company over any aspects of your accident. These types of disputes often become very complicated and usually involve various legal guidelines and procedures. In the event that any such dispute arises and you do not have a workers’ compensation attorney, it is very likely that you will be at a major disadvantage. For this reason, hiring a reputable workers’ compensation attorney from the beginning is vital to your case.

In most cases, workers’ compensation attorneys offer free consultations. These consultations usually last somewhere between a half hour and an hour. During this time, the attorney will review the details of your case and determine whether or not you will need representation. During the consultation process, the attorney will also discuss the various scenarios of how your case might progress and most importantly, your chances for success.

It is important to understand that most workers’ compensation attorneys work on a contingency basis. This means that the attorney will receive a percentage of the workers’ compensation benefits you receive if you win your case. However, in the event that you do not win, you will not owe the attorney any money.

If you or someone you know has been injured on the job, contact the workers’ compensation attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers, LLP NY today.

Dear friends and clients,

In furtherance of our firms culture of commitment to always act with compassion, concern and commitment to our clients, community and colleagues, we have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligations while prioritizing health, wellness and safety of all we can. 

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.

Until further notice, our offices will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call, email, live chat or video conference us if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance. As the first law firm to offer our clients secure online access to their case file more than a decade ago, we have always been believers in using technology to make life easier and information more accessible. In these present times it has been a smooth transition for us to continue to offer our clients the same seamless and thorough service that you deserve and are accustomed to.

This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.

When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance from a safe distance.

Very truly yours,

Andrew G. Finkelstein and the staff of Jacoby & Meyers, LLP
