You are not alone if you are getting caught up in the red tape of your workers comp or social security disability claim. It is important to remember that you have rights. In New York State businesses are required to carry worker’s compensation coverage for all employees including full and part time positions. You should not feel like you cannot file a claim for fear of repercussions.
Although most insurance companies want you to see their doctor, you have the right to a second medial opinion and to pursue proper medical treatment for your illness or injury. When you are released by your physician, you have the right to return to work in the same or comparable position. If you are unable to return to work because of your illness or injury you have the right for disability compensation. You also have the right to seek proper and experienced representation throughout the claim process.
