Workers Compensation Office New York Resource Guide offered by Workers Compensation Helpline New York, Georgia, Florida,

    Q. Are all disabilities covered under Workers' Compensation Law?
    A. No. Only those disabilities that are causally related to an accidental injury "arising out of and in the course of the employment" or to occupational disease, are compensable.
    Q. What if the worker fails to file a claim for workers' compensation?
    A. The worker may lose his/her right to benefits and medical care.
    Q. Is it necessary for the worker to retain an attorney?
    A. No. W.C. Law Judges may assist a worker not represented by an attorney. An attorney's assistance may be desirable if the issues are complicated. Attorney's fees are deducted from the claimant's award, as determined by a Workers' Compensation Law Judge. A claimant must not pay an attorney directly.
    Q. How is the weekly cash benefit for temporary total disability determined?
    A. The weekly cash benefit for temporary total disability is computed by taking two-thirds of the workers' average weekly wage for one year immediately preceding the accident. It may not, however, exceed the legal maximum in effect on the date of the injury.
    Q. Is medical care provided in the case of an accidental injury even when no claim is made for weekly cash benefits?
    A. Yes. If medical care is necessary, it will be provided even though there has been no lost time from work (or less than eight days lost time) and no cash benefits paid.
    Q. When must a physician request advance authorization for medical care?
    A. The law requires a physician to request prior authorization for specialist consultations, surgical procedures, physiotherapeutic procedures, X-rays or special diagnostic laboratory tests costing more than $500 until July 10, 2007. As of July 11, 2007, the special services must cost more than $1,000 before authorization must be requested. However, as of March 13, 2007, insurance carriers are authorized to require claimants to obtain X-rays, CT Scans, MRIs and other diagnostic tests from a provider or facility within the network it has contracted with for such tests. If the insurance carrier has notified the claimant of this requirement, then the claimant must obtain diagnostic tests from a network facility or provider unless it is an emergency or there is no location within a reasonable distance from the claimant.
    Q. Are prescription drugs and medications covered under the law?
    A. Yes. The claimant should send a receipted bill and letter from the attending physician to the insurance carrier, stating that the purchase was necessary and in accordance with the physician's direction. As of July 11, 2007, the law specifically authorizes pharmacies to direct bill the insurance carrier and requires the insurance carrier to pay for the prescription or reimburse the employee within 45 days of receipt of the claim for payment or reimbursement. It also allows the insurance carrier to contract with a pharmacy or pharmacies and require claimants to use the pharmacy or pharmacies to obtain their prescriptions. The only exceptions are when a medical emergency occurs and it is not reasonably possible to obtain immediately required prescribed medicines from such pharmacy or pharmacies or the pharmacy or pharmacies do not offer mail order service and do not have a physical location within a reasonable distance from the claimant.
    Q. May a doctor proceed with care if the insurance carrier withholds authorization without reason?
    A. Yes. When the authorization has been requested and withheld without reason for more than 30 days, the doctor may proceed to render the services required for the claimant's welfare. If the authorization is for a diagnostic test and the carrier has contracted with a network and requires claimants to use the network, the diagnostic test must be obtained from a provider or facility within the network.
    Q. Must an injured worker submit to a medical examination when requested to do so by the employer or insurance carrier?
    A. Yes. The employer or insurance carrier is entitled to have the worker examined by a qualified physician. Refusal to submit to an exam may affect the worker's claim.
    Q. What happens when a claim is contested by the insurance carrier?
    A. The insurance carrier contesting a claim must file a notice of controversy with the Board within eighteen days after the disability begins or within ten days of learning of the accident, whichever is greater. The carrier must give the reasons why the claim is not being paid. The issue is resolved by a W.C. Law Judge at a prehearing conference or a hearing.
    Q. May an insurance carrier suspend or modify the cash benefits?
    A. In a case where the carrier has made payment without waiting for a Judge's decision, it may suspend or modify the payment based on payroll or medical evidence submitted to the Board.
    Q. What can a worker do if he/she is not satisfied with the Judge's decision?
    A. The worker may file with the Board a written application for review within thirty days of the filing of the notice of the Judge's decision. The application must specify why the claimant disagrees with the decision.
    Q. What can a worker do if he/she is not satisfied with the Board's decision after an application for review?
    A. The worker may appeal to the Appellate Division, Third Department, within thirty days after the decision has been served upon the parties.
    Q. What is the penalty for making a false claim?
    A. A person who willfully misrepresents the circumstances surrounding his or her case in order to obtain benefits is guilty of a felony.
    Q. What do I need to do if my spouse/parent/child/grandchild(ren)'s has passed away while collecting workers' comp benefits?
    A. Notify the Board and Insurance Carrier¹ immediately and submit (when available) a copy of the Death Certificate.
    Q. As a widow/widower, will his/her compensation benefits continue coming to me once they passed?
    A. In most cases benefits may stop. The widow/widower must file for a Workers' Compensation Death claim showing medical proof that the claimants death was related to the establised work injury. If the death claim is found compensable, payments may resume retroactive back to the date of death.
    Q. What do I need to do if my spouse/parent/child/grandchild(ren)'s death was becasue of his/her work injury?
    A. File for a Workers' Compensation Death claim by completeing and filing a C-62 with the appropriate documentation. You will also need to file the C-64 and, If you have it, file medical evidence from the last treating physician stating how the death is causally related to the original work injury/illness.
    Q. What if my Child was killed at work and has no dependents; are there benefits payable for at least funeral expenses?
    A. Parents who were not dependent on the deceased would be eligible for a no-dependency award if there were no spouse, children, or other dependent family members. They would also be eligible for up to the maximum allowed under Workers' Compensation for funeral expenses paid.
    Q. I have been approached to consider settling my claim, what do I do?
    A. Under the Workers' Compensation Law, any settlement, whether a stipulation agreement or a Section 32 Waiver Agreeement, is a negotiation between you and the Carrier¹. The main difference is that a Stipulation is always subject to modification, with proof and the Boards consent, whereas a Section 32 can never be changed once approved by the Board (see Workers' Compensation law section 32).
    Q. What is a stipulation agreement?
    A. This is an agreement between the carrier¹ and claimant which is memorialized in writing on a Board-prescribed form, and placed on the record by the Judge. This agreement is usually to agree on a percentage of a schedule loss of use, level of disability, reimbursements to the employer, and/or what your weekly indemnity benefits will be.
    For more information on stipulations, see Board rule 12 NYCRR 300.5.
    Q. What is a Schedule Loss of Use Award?
    A. This is an award that is issued by the Judge that determines the amount of loss of use you have to the injured body part (Usually limbs/digits). This percentage is determined by medical evidence such as treating doctors' report and the Independent Medical Examiners report, if any. This award is paid at your total disability rate as applied. This award is set forth in a Board decision, listing amounts as if they were lost wages, whether you have actually lost time or not. However, once an award is paid, if you have not been out of work for that amount of weeks, it is then considered an advance payment and if you go out of work due to this injury later on, you will not be paid for lost wages until the number of weeks is used up. If you have already been out of work for the amount of weeks of the schedule loss, you will not receive any further payments. But if you are out of work down the road, and used up the weeks of the schedule loss, you may be elegible for further monies.
    Q. If I had a Schedule Loss of Use Award can I still treat with my doctor?
    A. Yes
    Q. What can I include in the Section 32 agreement?
    A. The Section 32 agreement is a negotiation; therefore you can include what you feel is in your best interest. There are times when medical is left in and just the monetary value is what is finalized. While many cases are based upon aproxmiately (5) years of payments, remember it is a negotiation. Both parties have to be in agreement before it can be presented to the Board.
    Q. What if I settled on a Section 32 and my condition gets worse?
    A. You will be responsible for anything related to this injury, no one else.
    Q. What if I have extreme financial hardship or need surgery down the road due to the injury I settled with a Section 32?
    A. You are solely responsible for any bills related to this injury.
    Q. Can I sue someone for my injuries since I settled my case?
    A. No
    Q. What if I have settled my case, but then reinjure myself at work again to the same thing and it is made worse?
    A. If this were to happen, you could then file a new claim. If the Judge were to determine that there would be an apportionment between the first injury and the new one, you would only get paid the apportionment amount from the new injury as the first injury case was settled.
    Q. Can I file for a Death Claim if my spouse settled his/her case on a section 32 and has since passed away due to the injury/illness?
    A. Yes, only if the persons death was related to the actual injury/illness. ( Please see under the Workers' section on how to file a Death claim).
    Q. What can I do if I disagree with an MOD issued and the Full Board Review is denied?
    A. You have thirty days from the denial of the Full Board Review notice in which to file with the Appellate Division, Third Department, of the Supreme Court. This step is outside the Workers' Compensation System and there could possibly be a fee for filing the appeal. The Supreme Court does have programs in which to file as a poor person. Again, you would need to contact them.

Lawyers for Benzine Exposure and Mesothelioma

Benzene Exposure has been  Blamed for Causing Leukemia and Anemia

If you have inhaled benzene as a result of your employment for a long period of time call 1 800 733 5342 for a workers compensation lawyer experienced in Benzene exposure today.

Mesothelioma is a malignant cancer of the lining of the lungs, heart, or abdomen that is caused by inhaling asbestos fibers. Many mesothelioma victims are given 8 to 12 months to live.

In addition to mesothelioma, workplace exposure to asbestos can also increase the risk of lung cancer, asbestosis, and other diseases of the larynx, lungs, kidneys, and other internal organs.

Benzene is now known to be the cause of various kinds of acute and chronic leukemia as well as non-Hodgkins lymphoma and aplastic anemia. These illnesses may affect you shortly after exposure to benzene or take years to develop.

Petroleum and tire workers, painters, and mechanics are among the groups of workers who are exposed to benzene both through inhaled fumes and contact with the skin on a daily basis

The toxic chemical benzene is a solvent found in a variety of other chemicals, including most glues, adhesives, paints and stains, plastics, and pesticides. It is also used in gasoline and cigarettes. Benzene is one of the most common chemicals in the world and is a leading cause of deadly cancers, including Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, and anemia.

Benzene Exposure Risks

Benzene is used in so many chemicals and products, millions of Americans have been exposed to it in levels that are potentially harmful. The following products are among the most common sources of benzene:

  • Paint and stain fumes
  • Manufacturing of plastics, detergents, glues and dyes
  • Pesticides
  • Hazardous waste areas
  • Cigarettes
  • Gas Refineries
  • oil rig workers
  • Burning coal and oil
  • Automotive exhaust

Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)

Acute Myelogenous Leukemia is a rare, but deadly form of cancer that affects the myeloid line of white blood cells. It causes rapid growth of abnormal cells, which then build up in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal blood cells. AML is the most common type of acute leukemia among American adults and becomes more common as people age. About 13,000 people are diagnosed with AML each year in the United States, including about 4,200 in children under age 19. AML currently accounts for about 1.2% of all cancer deaths in the United States, but that number is expected to rise as the nation’s population grows older.

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) is another disease commonly associated with benzene exposure. CLL affects a type of white blood cell called “B Cells” which are infection fighters inside the bone marrow. CLL damages the B Cells so they can no longer fight infection. When this happens, infections can quickly spread throughout the body.

Benzene Exposure Symptoms

 

Benzene exposure can result in the following symptoms:

  •     Abdominal pain or “fullness”
  •     Abnormal bleeding
  •     Bone or joint pain
  •     Enlarged spleen, lymph nodes, and liver
  •     Excessive bruising
  •     Fatigue
  •     Fever
  •     Infection
  •     Malaise (vague feeling of bodily discomfort)
  •     Reduced tolerance for exercise
  •     Weight loss

These symptoms are also often associated with the flu or other common diseases. To determine if benzene exposure is the cause of these symptoms a blood test can be used. Doctors then analyze the blood to check for a specific blood abnormality related to benzene exposure.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and believe you have been exposed to benzene, you should consult with your doctor and inform him/her of your possible benzene exposure. Your doctor may then make arrangements for a diagnostic test. Once you know you have Benzene related exposure comolications contact a workers compensation lawyer experienced in Benzene exposure.

  • Negligent tort – the Defendant was unaware that an injury could occur as a result of his/her actions, and at the same time, the Defendant was not acting in a safe manner.

A deposition is a statement given under oath before a Court Reporter. This is usually done in a lawyer's office where the witness answers questions given by the attorneys representing both parties to the case. The reporter makes a written transcript of everything said at the deposition and the witness signs the transcript swearing it is an accurate rendition of the evidence he /she gave.

5. How will I pay all my medical bills?

If you have been injured, you will likely have medical bills from physicians, hospitals, physical therapists, and other health care providers. Those bills will be in your name and will usually be sent to your address. You are primarily responsible for paying your bills, regardless of the cause of your injuries. The at-fault person's liability insurance carrier is responsible for paying you reasonable compensation for damages incurred, which includes medical bills.

6. What issues will I face in making a claim for my injuries sustained in an auto accident?

A claim for injuries, sustained in an automobile accident, is usually based upon carelessness or negligence. In worse case scenarios, it is based on an intentional or reckless act.

The two categories of issues that typically arise in a tort claim after an automobile accident are the following:

  • Liability – who is at fault and to what degree
  • Damages – injuries or losses that were caused by the accident

7. If I slip and fall at a business, is the owner of the business or other premises legally responsible for injuries sustained?

Typically, it is the duty of an owner to exercise reasonable care in the maintenance of the premises and to warn a visitor of any dangerous conditions that are known. For example, if an owner, or his employees, knows that there has been a spill within their establishment, then they must act reasonably to clean up the spill and to prevent visitors from walking through the spill.

It is the responsibility of your experienced personal injury attorney to gather the relevant facts and to know the applicable legal principles in order to determine if the owner can be held liable for the injuries caused in a fall. Frequently, it is a difficult process because most of the evidence and testimony must come from the owner and his employees.
