Claiming Additional Benefits
If your case was accepted, you have 18 years from the date of the accident to reopen it. There are a number of reasons you may be able to reopen a workers' comp case. Some settlements, such as those for schedule losses for example, can be reopened. If your condition has deteriorated since you received your settlement, you may be able to get additional benefits to compensate you for the current percentage loss. You may also reopen a case if you received compensation for lost wages and medical bills, but did not make a permanent settlement. One of the changes to New York workers' compensation law involves cases of permanent partial disability. If you have an 80 percent permanent partial disability, you may be able to reopen your case within the allowable time frame.
