When you are hurt on the job or unable to continue working due to a disability, you owe it to yourself and your family to apply for disability benefits or workers’ compensation. Markhoff & Mittman is a workers’ compensation and social security disability law firm that represents injured workers and their families who live in New York City, Westchester County, Nassau County, Suffolk County, and other parts of the metropolitan area.

You must proceed carefully when applying for benefits—disability, workers’ compensation, or retirement disability. One mistake in a doctor’s record or a missing form can make the difference between immediate benefits or months, possibly years of delay. You will encounter a bureaucratic morass, with each government benefits program having its own hurdles to jump. Having a lawyer gives you a big advantage. At Markhoff & Mittman, we are your partner and guide through this process. You can rely on our thorough knowledge of state and federal laws as well as our day-in and-day-out experience in dealing with the offices, personnel, and judges who will decide your case.
The most effective time to call us is right at the beginning—especially if you’re filing for New York workers’ compensation benefits. Recent changes in the law could jeopardize your right to treatment with the doctor of your choice or to receive appropriate benefits. The same is true if you’re filing with the federal social security program, which initially denies more than 80 percent of claims brought before it. There is no time like now to find experienced legal help.
Not having a lawyer in place before a claim for any type of benefits is denied can weaken your appeal because tight deadlines often leave too little time to gather the necessary medical exams and records for building a solid case. The best way to avoid this scenario is by contacting us before you think you might need a lawyer, so we can begin to educate you about the steps you’ll face ahead.
Call us immediately! Even if you are already receiving benefits, it won’t be long before the insurance company will notify you that your benefits are being reduced or terminated. There’s not a moment to waste in order to guarantee that payments continue.We want to help you. Call us toll-free at 855-614-4351 or at 914-946-1452. Or, click here to email us about your case.
