    As a Long Island, NY workers comp lawyer, I know it is sometimes hard to find podiatrists who take WC. I would use the Healthcare Provider Search tool on the NY Workers' Compensation Board website. See link below. Good luck! http://www.wcb.ny.gov/hps/HPSearch.jsp

    There is no guarantee under the NY Workers' Compensation Law that you can "collect for life" even if you have been classified as a permanent partial disability (PPD) since 1993. This is a myth that may come back to haunt you. The 2007 legislative changes that placed "caps" on PPD classifications have no bearing on your particular case except to highlight that your potential income stream is longer than others who came after you. However, you still must show (usually during those yearly...

    If I had to bet, your employer either has a high deductible workers' compensation policy or is self insured. In both cases, the claim might be administered by an "insurance company", but the $ to pay your settlement will come out of the employer's own workers compensation reserve fund, and they don't want to part with the money just yet. Your attorney should know if this is the situation, so ask him. By the way, if your diagnosis is truly only "sprains, strains and contusions", if they offer...

    I am a New York Worker's Compensation lawyer. Your question is complicated. I agree with the lawyer who suggests that you sit down with your current Worker's Compensation lawyer to map out a strategy. You could go in two different directions depending upon what is best for you. If you can no longer work and your former occupation and could not find employment that is equal to or greater paying and your former work, you may want to look into trying to get a permanent partial disability...

    I agree with my colleague Brian Mittman. At this point it appears that the adjuster is simply not caring enough to follow the law, which requires the carrier to pay within 10 days. You should ask your lawyer to request an immediate 20% penalty on the entire award for paying late. Good luck!

    As an employee under the NY Workers' Compensation Law, you are entitled to safe "ingress and egress" while entering or exiting the employers premises. This is called the "gray area" since it is based largely on the time you fall after you exit work and how far you are from the employer's exit. Based upon time the accident happened alone, it sounds like you have a good case. Insurance companies frequently fight these claims, but an experienced workers compensation lawyer should be able to get...

    Absolutely. Many of my clients who have been found "partially disabled" (anything less that 100%) by the New York Workers' Compensation Board have also won Social Security Disabilit benefits. It will depend on your disability, age, education and past work history. Good luck!

    It all depends on whether your net recovery in your third party settlement has changed (especially if it has decreased) in the last three years and whether the WC insurer's lien has increased. The carrier's original consent to settle is based upon the financial facts of the case at the time of the request to consent. If their has been a substantial change in either your net recovery or the carrier's lien, I agree with the others that the prudent course is to recontact the WC carrier to...

    What you are asking about is Social Security Survivors' Benefits, which is really no more than government sponsored "life insurance" for working people. Your individual case may depend on many factors, but I strongly suggest you read the attached PDF describing eligibility for Survivor Benefits in general, and then contact Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 if you think you may be eligible. It never hurts to apply, and as oposed to a Social Security Disability application, this one is easy....
