WHY DO I NEED A LAWYER? I THOUGHT WORKERS’ COMP MEANS GETTING PAID WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY A LAWYER?

The insurance company never asks whether to hire a lawyer. They never ask whether to train their examiners or whether to find ways to make money. Insurance companies are all about business.

So, when a worker has an injury on the job, who will advise the worker (you!) what needs to be done to protect your interests?
Only lawyers in the New York Workers’ Compensation system will give you the advice you need,

Sure, you can call the insurance company or the Workers’ Compensation Board or your best friend, but, if the insurance company takes the time and effort to spend lots of money to keep costs down, maybe you should know a little bit about how the system works from someone who does not have the insurance company’s need to hold costs down as the first priority.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS. KNOW WHAT YOU DESERVE. STICK UP FOR YOURSELF.

With recent changes to New York workers' compensation law, employers cutting costs and people struggling to make a living in this economy, injured and disabled persons need legal assistance more than ever. Whether you are seeking workers' comp benefits, Social Security Disability/Supplemental Security Income (SSD/SSI) benefits or both, an experienced lawyer may make the difference between receiving the benefits you need and being denied.

We provide compassionate, responsive service for your legal needs, whether you are an injured construction worker, truck driver or a person disabled by diabetes. We can also help you with third-party injury claims related to workplace injuries.

The settlement money will help me when I retire in a few years. Thank you Mr. Koenigsberg for helping me. – MR
  • When the insurance company charged me with fraud and said they had video tapes of me working, I was upset. The attorney I was using told me he couldn’t help me and that I should find a criminal attorney. Fortunately, I searched the web and found my new comp attorney, Mr. Koenigsberg. Mr. Koenigsbberg carefully reviewed the videos with me and we were able to show the judge that the tapes were inaccurate and sloppy. The judge believed me and I won my case. Thank you Mr. Koenigsberg for taking...
