Knee, Shoulder & Joint Injuries
New York Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
It seems these days that injuries to the knees and shoulders can result in the biggest settlements. Sometimes the law favors these injuries over all others. We just settled a case for a worker who had a minor surgery for $130,000. We finished the case within a year and the client is still working at his old job, only having lost a few days from work.
The reason for this is simple. The system rewards certain injuries more than others and only by understanding the nuances of the system can injured workers truly receive the benefits intended by the law. It doesn’t always make sense. But, if you want to understand something, hire someone to help you learn.
I have been in the workers’ compensation system for over 25 years, 22 years as a lawyer. I have handled at least 10,000 cases. So, when you have a question about whether you are getting what you are entitled to, please call me and I will speak to you personally. And whether you hurt your shoulder or your head can make all the difference in how your treatment and benefits are delivered. Be informed. This is your life.
At the Law Office of Robert Koenigsberg, we have been dedicated to protecting the rights of injured workers throughout New York City and its surrounding areas for more than a decade. While much has been made of the 2007 reforms to the workers’ compensation system, our experience and commitment to protecting injured workers’ rights are still invaluable assets to have on your side.
We understand the difficult position you’re in and your need for help. In many cases, insurance companies try and expedite the process and award less compensation to the victim than they truly deserve. As an experienced worker compensation attorney, with my help, I will make certain you receive all the monetary and medical benefits you deserve from your employer, whether your plan is to settle out of court or go to trial. Our attorneys and staff are friendly, helpful and happy to answer any questions or concerns that you have throughout the process.
We can help you to recover compensation for lost income, qualified medical expenses, permanent disabilities and more; and we will be aggressive in seeking a fair settlement. Even if you do not lose time from work due to your injury, you may be entitled to a “no lost time” settlement. We will also be aggressive in pursuing third-party personal injury claims if an individual or business other than your employer was responsible for your injuries. Lastly, if your injuries are permanent, our office can also assist you with the process of applying for Social Security Disability.
