If your doctor has recommended or has already performed surgery as a result of your work related injury in New York State it is probably time to consult with an attorney regarding your legal rights.
Undergoing surgery often means that your injury is not just a minor medical problem. Surgery usually required an extensive recovery period that often results in permanent restrictions and limitations.
If you are considering having surgery or have already had surgery, you’re probably wondering whether or not you will ultimately receive a settlement of your claim. You also need to know how much your weekly compensation payments will be following your surgery and how long they can last.
Always remember that the insurance companies have numerous law firms on retainer to advise them and represent them before the Workers’ Compensation Board.
