New York City Workers Compensation Lawyers
Nearly all employers in New York are required to provide workers' compensation insurance for their employees. Even undocumented workers — those with no green card and no Social Security number, who are sometimes referred to as illegal aliens, — have a right to receive workers' compensation when injured on the job.
How It Works in New York
If an employee is injured in a workplace accident or develops a work-related illness, disability or disease, he or she is entitled to receive benefits at no cost through the employer's workers' compensation insurance.
Contact the workers' compensation attorneys at James Kalamaras, ESQ., P.C. to make sure you are receiving all the benefits and compensation you deserve. We offer a free, no-obligation initial consultation for injured workers from any profession.
What Do If You Are Injured
If you are injured on the job, it is important to:
Give notice: Tell your supervisor about the injury as soon as possible. Failure to promptly report the injury can put your right to compensation at risk.
Get medical treatment: You can go to your own doctor. Just be sure to tell the doctor that you were injured on the job.
File a workers' compensation claim: Our attorneys can help you file the initial claim.
What Benefits Are Available? Labor Law 240 and Other Work Injury Benefits
Workers' compensation includes a number of benefits, including:
Cash benefits: You can receive two thirds of your gross pay per week. The maximum weekly payment depends on your date of accident.
Medical benefits: including all necessary doctor visits, hospital care, diagnostic testing, surgery, and prescription medications, without cost or co-pay to you. You also have the ability to choose your own doctor.
Death benefits for the surviving spouse and/or minor children of a worker who died because of a work related accident or illness.
Why Hire a Workers' Compensation Attorney?
Workers' compensation is a complicated and rapidly changing field of law. The system was overhauled dramatically in 2007 and the smoke hasn't yet cleared from those changes. In order to ensure that you obtain all the benefits and compensation your are entitled to receive, it is important to speak to an attorney who understands the law and is willing to fight for you.
No-Fault Collections for Doctors and Medical Providers
James Kalamaras, ESQ., P.C. represents doctors and health care providers in the collection of unpaid medical bills for properly submitted no-fault insurance claims. We take pride in the personal relationships we foster with each of our clients and in the professional relationships we have developed with the insurance carriers and their respected legal representatives.
New York's automobile No-Fault Law was originally enacted to ensure insurance carriers would pay for legitimate medical expenses, lost earnings and incidental costs resulting from motor vehicle accidents, regardless of who was to blame. The alleged purpose behind the law was to speed compensation and reimbursement without the necessity of long, drawn-out litigation over fault and amounts owed.
However, as doctors and medical providers have learned over the years, payments of medical bills by the insurance companies are habitually delayed or denied, and it has become increasingly difficult to get paid for legitimate services rendered.
Our attorneys can help you collect the money owed to you for your services and can reduce the frustration and wasted time associated with battling the insurance companies.
Every case is reviewed to determine the best plan of attack to produce the fastest and highest collection of your medical bills. In addition, as a service to our clients, we will personally train your staff in the proper submission of medical bills to the insurance companies, to minimize common mistakes that can affect payment of your bills.
