Your Guaranteed Benefits

New York has been one of the leaders in giving basic protections to injured workers for more than a century. The law ensures that working people who suffer from injuries, get the care they need to move forward.

At Bangel, Cohen & Falconetti, LLP, our attorneys want you to know exactly what benefits you deserve as part of workers' compensation. These are your rights, and we will help protect them.

Wage Replacement

These are cash benefits paid to you from the workers' compensation insurance to help you make ends meet while you cannot work. If your injury forces you to take a lower paying job upon return, you can continue to get "reduced earnings" benefits to help make up some of the difference from what you were originally earning.

Medical Treatment

All treatment for work-related injuries is covered by law without any out of pocket expense. This can include mileage reimbursement for travel to and from doctor's appointments, physical therapy, surgery or anything else needed to get you back on your feet.

Social Security Disability

If your workplace injury keeps you from work for longer than 12 months, then you can receive Social Security Disability payments. These benefits will allow you to continue paying your bills and move forward with your life.

Death Benefits

When a person dies as the result of a workplace accident, it is their family that suffers the loss the most. A family is dependent on every cent that comes into their home, and these benefits will allow families get by as they move forward.
