Serving the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and New York
New York workers’ compensation is designed to pay benefits to workers who have been injured on the job. It provides compensation for medical expenses and lost wages, as well as for full or partial disability. Benefits may continue for as long as you are unable to work due to your disability.
If you are an injured worker or a family member was injured in a work-related accident, our attorneys at The Orlow Firm can help you file your claim and pursue any additional avenues of recovery. You will work with a named partner, something we believe you should expect from any law firm. To assure our clients the most effective representation, our firm works together with a law firm that deals exclusively in matters relating to workers’ compensation.
We advocate on behalf of injured workers and their families to ensure maximum compensation and stability after an accident. For more information about workers’ comp and third-party liability, contact The Orlow Firm. Call (646) 647-3398 or contact us online.

Your Recovery Beyond Compensation Benefits
Any injury sustained in the course of work-related duties can be compensated in accordance with state workers’ compensation benefits laws. If you have been injured on the job, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Even if you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits, you may be eligible for additional damages if a third party, which is someone other than your employer or a co-worker, caused your injuries.
Manufacturers, subcontractors and landlords are all third parties. Settlements and verdicts awarded to victims of construction accidents caused by third-party negligence are typically much greater than workers’ compensation awards.
