When you’ve suffered a workplace injury, it can be difficult to move forward with your life. Your days are often consumed with doctor’s visits, medical bills, pain management, and worries about missed work days and paychecks. The last thing you need during this stressful time is to navigate the confusing world of workers compensation on your own.
A Forceful Advocate for Injury Victims in Albany and Upstate New York
It’s my goal, as Paul Giannetti Attorney at Law, to make your post-injury life easier by being a forceful and skillful advocate for your rights. Over the past 20 years, I have helped hundreds of accident, injury and disabled victims in the Albany area obtain the full workers’ compensation benefits, Social Security disability benefits, and other compensation they’re entitled to under New York State and federal law.
I want to help you, too. I am dedicated to offering compassionate, personalized attention to my clients, and obtaining for them the full and fair compensation they deserve. If you or a loved one has been hurt or disabled on the job, call me at (866) 868-2960 or contact me for a free consultation.
Helping You Obtain the Benefits and Compensation You Deserve
Under New York law, employees injured on the job are usually entitled to workers’ compensation payments without regard to fault. But that doesn’t mean your employer or their insurance company won’t fight to deny or limit the amount of compensation awarded to you, and you can expect they will lean on attorneys to protect their interests.
You deserve an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who fully understands your rights under New York law and is ready to battle for every cent to which you’re entitled. That’s what you get in me. On a practical level, you can also count on me to:
- Guide you through the workers’ compensation application process
- Help collect medical evidence to prove your injury or disability
- Vigorously represent you at New York Workers’ Compensation Board hearings, proceedings, and appeals
- Fight for interrupted, terminated or survivor benefits
- Work quickly so the compensation process won’t be jeopardized or unduly lag
- Give my undivided, personal attention to your case
- Charge legal fees only if you receive compensation for your injuries
I’ll also investigate whether you might be entitled to financial relief from other sources, including Social Security disability and personal injury claims against third parties. If you have a valid claim, I will pursue all appropriate legal remedies to help ensure that you are fully compensated for your injuries and that your standard of living will not decline due to your injury or disability.
I will also help you understand if and when you should consider returning to the job after a work injury. Your long-term health and your financial situation should both be taken into account, and we can assist you in making the right choice about returning to work.
Extending a Hand to all Injured Workers
