New York Workers' Comp Claims Involving The Lower Extremities
Almost all jobs require you to walk and stand for part of the day. If you have a serious injury to your hip, leg, knee, ankle, foot or toes, you may be unable to work for a period of time and thus you may be eligible for weekly workers' compensation benefits. Employers and insurers, however, are not always sympathetic with these injuries. You may need legal representation to get the right treatment and the necessary time to heal. In addition, these injuries are often permanent and will result in a cash settlement (Schedule Loss of Use or SLU award) after you reach maximum medical improvement.
At Turley Redmond Rosasco & Rosasco, L.L.P., we have advocated for injured workers from Queens and Long Island for more than 25 years. Our attorneys are very familiar with leg, knee and foot injuries, and they understand how such injuries translate into lifelong permanent injuries. Our workers' compensation experience helps us obtain maximum cash awards for our clients.
