Schenectady Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Over a Century of Combined Experience Fighting for Work Injury Recovery
Workplaces should be safe. Unfortunately, many places are dangerous by nature, such as construction sites. Other workplaces employ violent individuals, causing more than two million incidents of workplace violence each year. If you are injured due to another person's negligence or deliberate and malicious acts while on the job, you may be entitled to collect monetary compensation. The Schenectady workers’ comp attorneys at Kirk & Teff, LLP can help.
In order to claim damages, you will need to notify your employer of the incident immediately, then fill out the necessary documentation and send it to a WC coordinator within two days of the incident. Your claim will be reviewed and either accepted or denied. If it is accepted, the appropriate benefits will be applied. If you are dissatisfied with the benefits that are allotted to you, or if your claim is denied, you may be able to appeal the decision.
