The Impact Of Pre-Existing Injuries or Conditions
When you are injured in an on-the-job accident, it is important to try and file all the necessary paperwork and document the incident as thoroughly as possible. Since the first step is often seeking medical treatment, though, sometimes the details of an injury’s origin become unclear.
An insurance company, your employer, and the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board will do everything in their power to try and prove that your injury or condition was pre-existing and was not caused by an accident at work. In this way, they can deny legal liability for your medical coverage.
At Kaplan Lawyers PC, we understand how frustrating it is when you cannot work due to your injury, yet your claim for compensation gets repeatedly denied. Our skilled and compassionate team of attorneys have helped countless clients win the benefits that they need and deserve. We realize that some injuries aren’t caused by one serious accident, but oftentimes are sustained due to repeated motions over the course of a career. We also know that there aren’t always witnesses around to corroborate your story, which in some cases makes it harder for workers to prove their case. However you were injured on the job or as a result of the job itself, we know that your case deserves attention and dedication, two qualities reflected in our long history of successful results.
If you are having trouble convincing the board that your injury or condition is work-related, you are not alone. Legal proceedings are complex and difficult situations. Having an attorney in your corner can prove to be an invaluable asset during your hearings and in court. If you are not receiving the benefits that you are entitled to contact Kaplan Lawyers PC for a free consultation so we can evaluate your situation and provide you with the help you need.
