    If you received a Schedule Loss of Use award based upon a permanent injury to your ankle/foot the insurance carrier may have a credit towards any award for additional lost time. My suggestion is to call your lawyer and he or she can be more specific

    Make sure you have something from your doctor putting you out and why. Just be prepared that the insurance company may not quickly start paying you. Also have your employer notify them that you are out again due to your injury

    There is a 10 day waiting period after the hearing to give you or the insurance company a chance to back out. A decision will then be sent out about 16 days after the hearing. Your check should be sent within 10days from that decision

    If you have returned to work making less money and they concede any type of disability you are entitled to 2/3 of the difference on earnings. For example if your average weekly wage was $1500 and now are earning $600 you would be entitled to $600. A consultation with an attorney would be beneficial

    You should speak with an attorney who has extensive knowledge and experience in the NY Workers' Compensation Law. You are entitled to monetary benefits as well as medical treatment. Many attorneys who handled defective product cases will not take your case due to the costs involved and the fact that you only injured a finger.
