Hiring a Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Hiring an attorney for your workers’ compensation claim can be one of the most important steps you take in claiming your benefits. New York workers’ compensation lawyer Richard R. Rowe can provide you with the dedicated, skilled service your case requires. He gives each client and their case individualized service in fighting for the benefits they deserve. Call us today to discuss your workers’ compensation claim and how Richard R. Rowe can help you.


In New York, workers’ compensation law can entitle employees injured on the job to certain medical and financial benefits. The process to file a claim can be complex, lengthy, and have long-term ramifications for the claimant and their family. An injured worker may choose to file a workers’ compensation claim on their own, but whenever there is an injury at work, you consulting with a lawyer who has experience in workers’ compensation law can be highly beneficial.

Before you hire an attorney, gather information on your case, such as when and how you were injured, the injuries you suffered, and any treatment you have received thus far. This will help you as you interview attorneys, but will also be useful when you file your claim.
When you are ready to interview attorneys, you should find out as much as you can about the attorney’s experience and what services will be provided to you. The attorney should:
  • Have substantial experience in the area of workers’ compensation, including filing claims and handling appeals
  • Discuss your injury and the claims process with you before filing
  • File the claim with you to ensure it is completed correctly
  • Deal with your employer/insurance carrier on your behalf
  • Work with your doctors and healthcare providers to gather information in support of your case
  • Offer individualized attention to you and your claim


An attorney is only paid if your workers’ compensation claim is successful. If you hire a workers’ compensation attorney, their job is to help you fight for the medical treatment requested by your doctors, as well as your lost wages. An attorney will only get paid if a judge awards you monetary benefits and authorizes the attorney’s fee. If there is no award, there is no fee. If a fee is awarded, then the insurance company will withhold it from your check and pay the attorney directly.

As a sole practitioner with years of experience in the area of workers’ compensation, he can give your case the attention and care it deserves.
