Workers' Compensation

New York Workers' Compensation Claim Attorneys

Most employees in New York state are covered by workers' compensation insurance paid for by their employers. After a workplace accident, this coverage pays for medical care, rehabilitation services and a portion of your lost wages. It can also provide benefits in case you are disabled due to your injury.

At Fischer, Bessette, Muldowney & McArdle, LLP, we have been helping individuals injured in their workplace for decades. We assist our clients in filing claims, obtaining needed medical care and lost wage benefits, and dealing with insurance companies that do not always have your best interest at heart. We are also able to navigate the maze of forms, questions, hearings and other matters presented by the complex and often confusing compensation system.

Contact us to talk with a lawyer. In your free initial consultation, we can review your case and discuss how we may be able to help you. With offices in Malone, Tupper Lake, and Saranac Lake, we stand ready to assist workers' compensation claimants throughout the North Country.

Get All the Benefits You Deserve

Doctors working for the workers' compensation insurance companies often seek to downplay or minimize an injured person's losses. Sometimes, they will assert that an on-the-job injury was due to a preexisting condition that is not covered under workers' compensation. A recipient of workers' compensation benefits can suddenly have his or her benefits reduced, often after having been asked by an employer's insurance provider to undergo an independent medical exam (IME).

Our attorneys know how to challenge denials or workers' compensation claims and benefits. We will work with you, deal with the workers' compensation insurance company, and appear with you at hearings before the Workers' Compensation Board.

When an injury is serious, it can result in a permanent disability. Our firm can represent you regarding your workers' compensation claim and, if necessary, in a Social Security disability claim.

Do You Have a Third-Party Claim?

If your injury was caused by a third party, e.g., a subcontractor or driver not employed by your company, you may have a third-party claim. This can entitle you to receive additional compensation for your non-economic losses such as pain and suffering.

Fischer, Bessette, Muldowney & McArdle, LLP, has extensive experience in third-party construction and workplace accident cases. We will work tirelessly to help you get all of the compensation you deserve, from all possible sources.
