WHY DO I NEED A LAWYER? I THOUGHT WORKERS’ COMP MEANS GETTING PAID WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY A LAWYER?
When a worker suffers 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.
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.
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.

NY Workers' Compensation Case Types
What Did You Injure?
Mr. Koenigsberg fought the insurance company after I fell at work on a construction site. Because of him, I was able to have the surgeries I so badly even though the workers’ compensation carrier refused to authorize them until he got involved. – C.A.
I didn’t realize how important the workers’ compensation attorney was to my overall case. I had an accident on a construction site and wouldn’t go to anyone other than Mr. Koenigsberg because he helped me settle my workers’ compensation case so that I had money to survive. – T.G.
When I came into the office, I never expected to receive a settlement, especially since I had lost so little time from work. It is hard for me to continue working now and I push myself every day. The settlement money will help me when I retire in a few years. Thank you Mr. Koenigsberg for helping me. – M.R.
