Stemming from the 2007 changes by legislation to New York's workers' compensation system, lifetime benefits are no longer available for most injuries. It is important to remember that if you were involved with non-extremity injuries, you are now subject to new benefit caps based on the ever changing medical guidelines. As the process continues to change, the full effect of this legislation is still not set in stone. The Law Office of Craig S. Fine can help you understand how the new laws may affect your claim, and we will seek out all possible sources of compensation for your losses.
We are mindful of how other lawsuits—such as claims to recapture compensation for Medicare or Medicaid benefits provided or claims against third-party negligent individuals or businesses—should be handled in light of your workers' compensation case by a workers compensation attorney. Our attorneys work hard to ensure your interests are preserved when pursuing full work injury benefits.
