Everyone, regardless of the industry they have chosen to work in, has a bad day at work. But most of the time, that bad day becomes a distant memory that is typically forgotten. Unfortunately, when an on the job injury caused by a work accident is the cause, the injured worker is rarely able to forget what happened and frequently sustains further losses in the form of medical bills and lost wages. In some cases, an injury can be career ending.
While workers’ compensation exists to help cover these losses, a shocking number of claims are denied outright and often from just a simple mistake made on a claim form. The denial can be appealed, however, the appeal process is long and arduous, and often includes a hearing before the Workers’ Compensation Board. Thankfully, legal help is available. The lawyers at Markhoff & Mittman, P.C. have been helping injured workers in White Plains, NY recover after an on the job injury since 1933.
