The attorneys at Erwin, McCane & Daly in Albany, New York, have extensive experience representing injured workers and disabled individuals in New York Workers' Compensation and federal Social Security Disability claims.

If we represent you in a workers' compensation claim or Social Security Disability claim, you will work with our lawyers, not paralegals or assistants.
