White Plains Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
You would never go to a chiropractor for an eye exam or to a dentist for knee pain. Likewise, you should never work with an attorney who does not routinely handle workers’ compensation claims for your work-related injury. Without experienced representation, you risk losing out on benefits or having your claim denied because of a technicality.

Staying Up-To-Date With Changing Laws
New York workers’ comp law continues to change, so it is important for your attorney to be familiar with the changing laws and how they might affect your case. Some of the most recent changes include:
- In April 2007, the nature of the “permanent partial disability” radically changed, all but eliminating the prior system of “lifetime benefits” for workers who were permanently injured while in the course of their employment.
- In December 2010, the Board instituted new “Medical Treatment Guidelines” to govern treatment rendered for the most common injuries suffered by recipients of workers’ compensation — those to the back, neck, shoulder and knee. In addition to severely controlling and limiting the types and duration of treatment, these new guidelines also retroactively stripped away the right to continued “symptomatic” treatment that had been granted to injured workers with permanent disabilities years before.
Based on these changes, there is no reason to believe that the continuous reforming of the workers’ comp system will end soon. We know how to adapt to these changes and make it a priority to stay updated with the changes as soon as they occur.
