When you file a workers' compensation claim, odds are you're going to be dealing with insurance company lawyers and the doctors they hire for your checkup. You can be denied medical treatment, surgery, chiropractic care, physical therapy, medical massage and meds.
If you have questions, give us a call at 315-422-8614 or come in anytime. Fallon Law will tell you what the insurance lawyers are up to, and we always want you to know what's happening with your case. Your initial consultation is FREE, your attorney fees are paid by the insurance companies, and there is never a retainer fee.
If you've suffered a neck or back injury or had a serious accident that has left you either temporarily or permanently unable to work, you have rights under the New York Workers' Compensation claims process. You may be entitled to benefits even if you are not a United States citizen or if you work "off the books." In some cases, you may even be eligible for injuries or illnesses that occur before or after work.
But being prepared and properly filing your claim with your employer, the insurance company and the state is vital. It is not required that you have an attorney, but it is in your best interest to do so. Fallon Law will do all we can to help you. We can also help you determine if you should file a personal injury lawsuit for additional awards.
Don't be taken advantage of. The insurance company has lawyers, so you need a lawyer too!

Here's what to expect when you file a workers' compensation claim:
You'll be scheduled for an independent medical exam set up with a doctor chosen by the insurance company. We find that these examinations are quick and incomplete and often result in compensation rates being cut based on that one doctor's opinion. You can be denied medical treatment, surgery, chiropractic care, physical therapy, medical massage and meds.
The only way to counter the insurance company is to get your own doctor's opinions in front of an independent workers' compensation judge.
That's where Fallon Law comes in, making sure the judge knows what your personal medical experts are recommending for treatments, surgery and more, and what degree of disability you are facing.
For over 20 years, we've developed a reputation for effectively advocating for people injured on the job. We're proud of achieving maximum compensation for those victims.
