Long Island work accident compensation lawyer, Robert Golan, PC recently won 3 appeals for contested Workers’ Compensation decisions to provide clients monetary benefits in new case developments.

Long Island Workers Compensation lawyer, Robert Golan, PC, had success winning three appeals for contested Workers’ Compensation cases in new recent decisions. The NYS Workers’ Compensation Board, a court appointed administrative agency where the cases were held, issued a decision in favor of Robert Golan’s clients after successfully convincing the appellate Judges of their serious injuries.

Robert Golan, PC, Long Island Workers’ Compensation lawyer, at http://workerscompensation-law.com, said, “It is common that insurance companies and employers contest cases. When clients come to me for help, they are often seriously injured and in need of monetary benefits. They may be on their own or have families to take care of and can no longer work. It is a struggle for them to manage day to day with their injuries and manage a household. They need an experienced lawyer to help them with their Workers’ Compensation case. That’s where I come in to help with their case, overturning the ruling they received so they can receive the benefits they need to live and support their families.”

Mr. Golan has represented injured workers on Long Island and nearby areas in Workers’ Compensation cases since 1997. As a Long Island work accident compensation lawyer, at http://workerscompensation-law.com, he believes that handling a case personally from the intake process through to completion is the best way to serve clients.

Mr. Golan has had success arguing and winning several high profile case appeals, including Funke v. Eastern Suffolk Boces and Nickel v. Pilgrim Psychiatric Hospital. Mr. Golan recently won 3 appeals in contested Workers’ Compensation cases. One was for Katherine S. in Case # 0083 0941 in front of the NYS Workers' Compensation Board administrative agency, whose monetary benefits were denied by the trial judge because she allegedly retired from her job as secretary to the President of a University for reasons other than her work-related injuries. Mr. Golan was able to convince the appellate Judges (Commissioners) that she was seriously injured in her accident and was forced to retire mainly because of her injuries. They overturned the trial judge's decision and awarded her benefits. The court of record where this case was held is the NYS Workers’ Compensation Board.

Another Case # 2080 3057 held in front of the court of record NYS Workers' Compensation Board administrative agency involved John L., where Mr. Golan convinced the appellate Commissioners that the main reason he decided to accept a severance package and retire from his job as County parks groundskeeper was the severity of his back injury. They affirmed the trial judge in the face of an appeal by the insurance company and awarded him monetary benefits.

The third Case # G019 8486 in front of the court of record NYS Workers' Compensation Board administrative agency was for Christopher K., a sanitation worker, where Mr. Golan successfully argued that the insurance company doctor's report should be precluded due to his failure to submit the medical records he claimed to have relied upon in reaching his opinion. The client was therefore awarded monetary benefits at a higher rate than he otherwise would have been.

Mr. Golan has handled cases to award injured workers monetary benefits to secure their ability to take care of medical bills, have enough to support themselves and their families, and to retire from work.
