Share Article

New York Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Ashley-Andrews-Santillo of Munawar & Andrews-Santillo, LLP today issued a statement regarding a potential Workers’ Compensation claim involving Mets’ Pitcher Matt Harvey

As the New York Times correctly reported (Mets’ Harvey Is Covered Like Any Other Employee With a Workplace Injury, 9/19/2013), if New York Mets’ pitcher Matt Harvey opts to undergo Tommy John surgery, Workers’ Compensation insurance will cover at least some of the bill.

“Many people might be surprised to discover that such a high-profile injury would be treated the same as any person’s on-the-job injury,” states Ashley-Andrews-Santillo Esq, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP. “The difference is that Mr. Harvey has a team of professionals to handle the claim for him, whereas the average worker has to seek out legal assistance. While most workers who are injured on the job are entitled to benefits under New York State Law, many claims are denied because they are filed incorrectly. Having an experienced and knowledgeable New York City Workers’ Compensation attorney can help navigate the filing and claim process more accurately and improve your chances of receiving benefits.”

Applying for Workers’ Compensation, disability, lost wages, or retirement disability benefits can be tedious and tricky. A seemingly small error in filing the claim can cause several months or years of delay, or even ultimately result in denial.

Having an experienced Worker’s Compensation lawyer to help you along the way not only strengthens your claim, but improves your chances to receive the medical treatment and benefits for which you are entitled.

Finally, you often will be faced with strict deadlines for submitting medical records and other required documents, and having an attorney will make this process more manageable.
