In a Workers’ Compensation claim, virtually any injury or illness that is caused by some aspect of your employment may be covered. We say “may” because the insurance carriers and self-insured employers will often deny any non-routine case or cases where they feel they can dispute the cause or the connection to your employment. At McIntyre, Donohue, Accardi, Salmonson, & Riordan, LLP, our knowledgeable and experienced Workers’ Compensation attorneys are well versed in all areas of the law and practice in all state and federal courts in New York, as well as before federal, state and local administrative agencies. Our Brooklyn Workers’ Compensation attorneys are here to help you navigate through the claim process.
Our firm has over 65 years of experience in the area of workers’ compensation, both in representing clients before the Workers’ Compensation Board and investigating and prosecuting third party actions relating to work injuries.
