Workers' Compensation Lawyer

workers compensation lawyer buffalo nyInjured At Work?

Employers in New York State are required to provide workers’ compensation coverage for their employees. If you are injured at work, you are entitled to a portion of your lost wages and medical coverage for your injuries.

Any disputes between your employer’s insurance company and you, the injured worker, are handled by the Workers’ Compensation Board. It is important to have an attorney represent you because the insurance company, which is in the business of making money, will have their own.

Workers’ compensation is not just for on-the-job accidents. It also covers conditions which develop over time as a result of your work duties. These are called occupational diseases and some examples are carpal tunnel syndrome, hearing loss, and lung disease. These cases are often very complicated and you should have a workers’ compensation attorney to represent you.

Practice Areas

At Hurwitz, Whitcher & Molloy, Attorneys at Law, we understand how difficult it is to suffer an injury. Certain injuries can lead to temporary or permanent disabilities and prevent you from working. Our highly trained and skilled lawyers can help you file a timely legal claim and obtain the compensation you deserve. Here are the areas of law we specialize in:

Workers’ Compensation

It is every employer’s responsibility to provide a safe workplace for their workers. Unfortunately, however, accidents still occur. Accidents can occur in all types of work setting and may include slip and fall accidents, falls, machine entanglement, vehicle accidents and falling objects.

Although all employers are required to carry workers’ compensation benefits, they don’t always make it easy for their workers to get it. They may even retaliate against workers for filing a claim. That is what the talented lawyers at Hurwitz, Whitcher & Molloy, Attorneys at Law are here for. We have represented many injured workers in the past and are happy to help you. We will handle all the negotiation with the insurance company and protect your legal rights.

Personal Injury

Getting injured is never a walk in the park. When the injury resulted from another person’s negligence, it can be even more devastating. Injuries can result from various types of accident, from vehicle crashes to medical malpractice, and result in medical bills and other damages. At Hurwitz, Whitcher & Molloy, Attorneys at Law, we know how much an injury can disrupt your life. We have helped numerous accident victims obtain compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress and other damages.

Our lawyers will work tirelessly to help you get the justice you deserve for your injury. We will handle all negotiations with the insurance company and will not let them take advantage of you.

Social Security Disability

Whether it resulted from a car accident or workplace accident, becoming disabled can completely change your life. You may not be able to work again and may struggle financially because of your disability. If you have been disabled for at least one year, you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. However, the application process can be long and complicated. Our skilled lawyers can assist you with the application process and improve your chances of getting approved for benefits.

I became a client of the Hurwitz firm in May of 1997 due to injuries I received while I was a meat cutter at I. Isenberg Meats in Buffalo, New York. Since my first encounter with your firm and up until the present day, I have been entirely satisfied with the way your firm has treated me.
