We Can Help If You’ve Been Hurt on the Job
Getting injured while you’re at work can be stressful not only because of the physical pain and suffering you endure but also because of the emotional and financial distress associated with lost wages and medical bills. State laws require that a written accident report be given to the employer within 30 days or less of the accident, so it’s imperative to seek medical treatment and consult a lawyer as soon as possible. We are experienced in helping injured workers pursue all of the workers’ comp benefits they are due from the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board. Our attorneys can provide the guidance you need to get through the complexities of the compensation process.
We Are Experienced in Workers’ Compensation Law
Robert J. Helbock Jr. founded our firm in 1999 and has been continuing the workers’ compensation work started by his father, Robert J. Helbock Sr., who acted as a licensed claimants representative for many years. Bob Helbock now works alongside fellow partner Joseph A. Nappa to fight for workers’ rights and ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injury.
When Are You Eligible for Workers’ Compensation?
You are eligible for New York State workers’ compensation benefits when you have been injured while on the job and under the care of a doctor who has submitted reports to your insurer, the Workers’ Compensation State Board, and your attorney. Under specific circumstances, you may also be able to seek additional damages from a third party that contributed to or caused your accident.
