Alex Abdo was always clear on what I was to be doing after my work injuries.... follow doctors orders and any restrictions. He is knowledgeable and aware of the laws that were related to my case. My life was drastically changed after my 11/2/2018. He was quick to respond to questions and explained it again if necessary. He let me know what to expect at worker's compensation boards virtual hearing. After a hearing he would follow up to answer any questions I had. The staff in the entire office was all responsive and professional. I would highly recommend this office for any of your worker's compensation issues!

Who We Can Help?

Injured in a Workplace "Accident"

Defending Workers Rights

“Accidents” are the most common type of workplace injury and require very little explanation. A case can be established for workplace injuries that happened during a specific incident, such as while lifting, pushing, pulling or during a fall.

Injuries from an “Occupational Disease”

Injuries don’t always happen all at once

Sometimes injures happen over a longer period of time and are caused by the specific type of work that a person does. For example, a construction worker may develop a shoulder or a back problem caused by repetitively lifting or bending while at work. Alternatively, an electrician, mechanic or office worker may develop problems with their arms, wrists or hands caused by repetitively using tools and/ or moving items. These types of injuries are referred to as “occupational diseases”

Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Workers

Protecting First Responders

Workers’ compensation benefits are available to active volunteer members of a fire company of a county, city, town, village or fire district who are injured in the line of duty. Additionally, many New York State volunteer ambulance workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. If you are an active volunteer member of an ambulance company and are injured in the line of duty, you likely have workers’ compensation coverage available to you.

Workplace Injuries That Result in Death

Workers Rights Extend to the Whole Family

As horrible as it is, some injured workers do not survive their Accident or Occupational Disease. In these situations, a workers’ compensation case may be pursued on behalf of the surviving spouse, minor children or on behalf of the injured worker’s estate.

COVID-19 Infection That Occurred at Work

Workplace should be safe

It may not be possible to point to the moment or method of exposure to COVID-19. However, a claim for workers’ compensation benefits can potentially be pursued if a worker contracts COVID-19 and can demonstrate that he or she works in an environment where exposure to COVID-19 was prevalent. You need to have a medical report, from an authorized workers’ compensation medical provider, stating that your work caused your illness.
