Beyond Personal Injury
Health problems and injury happen for many reasons and there are as many remedies for them. Among those Sobo & Sobo specializes are Workman’s Compensation and Social Security Disability Insurance. These two economic rights protect workers of many kinds from the difficulties illness or injury can bring.
WORKMAN’S COMPENSATION INSURANCE
Every person who works in New York state is eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits pay for the injured workers’ medical care and also provide cash to compensate for workplace injuries and illnesses. If you work in New York, your employer almost certainly is required by law to provide you with these benefits in case of an injury or illness.
What to Expect
Workers’ Compensation claims can be frustrating. Insurance carriers who either don’t care or try to avoid payment are common. The Workers’ Compensation Board can slow the process and cause setbacks. But you won’t have to cope with all this alone. Sobo & Sobo will be there every step of the way.
SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY
Every person who works is eligible for social security disability benefits. So long as you or your employer has paid your Social Security taxes, you are covered. Almost every working person is covered under this insurance.
But unlike Social Security retirement benefits, disability benefits aren’t automatic. Unfortunately, over 60 percent of the people who apply for SSD benefits are initially rejected. A lawyer can help. The assistance of an experienced social security disability attorney can make all the difference.
It will take from two to six months for a ruling on your case. If you are denied benefits, we will appeal that decision and request a hearing. This can take up to 22 months. If you are further denied benefits, we won’t give up.
