In the aftermath of a workplace accident, it may feel impossible to go back to work for even the hardest working New Yorker. This is why the state of New York has enacted rules and regulations that obligate employers to provide workers’ compensation and benefits to injured employers. These benefits are intended to replace the workers’ loss of income when they are unable to work as a result of suffering serious injuries in a workplace accident.
A good workers compensation lawyer will have the experience and skills to build your case, negotiate the terms of settlement, and if necessary, take your case to trial. The attorneys at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. have what it takes to successfully handle your claim. We understand the toll of workplace injuries and the long lasting repercussions it can have on you and your family.
When you are injured at work or during the scope of employment, it is important to understand what is and what is not covered under New Yorks’ worker’s compensation laws. These laws set a strict guideline that outlines what your rights are in pursuing compensation. Just because you are injured on the job, it does not mean that you are automatically entitled to compensation. Without the help of an experienced attorney who specifically handles these types of cases, it may be nearly impossible for you to obtain the full and fair compensation that you deserve.
In order to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, your on-the-job accident must fall under one of the following categories:
Even incidents that clearly qualify for workers’ compensation benefits under New York can easily be disputed by employers. However, when you hire the aggressive and experienced workers’ comp attorneys at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., you can be sure that your legal rights are protected and that you will get the fair compensation that you deserve.
New York law provides different types of worker’s compensation benefits depending on the specific facts of each case. The benefits you may be entitled to depend on the nature of your injuries, the amount of time you will be away from work, and what is needed for your recovery.
Some common types of workers’ compensation benefits available to injured New Yorkers include:
The legal field of workers’ compensation is a complex changing area of law. Our team of attorneys is committed to providing those injured at their workplace or during the scope of employment with the aggressive advocacy and knowledgeable support they need to get results. We represent clients who have suffered a wide variety of workplace injuries. Below are only some of the workers compensation types of cases our legal team handles:
If you were injured on the job or during the scope of employment, you are entitled to medical benefits and compensation for your lost wages under New York’s workers’ compensation statutes. In certain cases, you may be entitled to additional compensation if someone other than your employment was also liable for your injuries. Our team of attorneys will investigate the facts of your claim to make sure all parties are held accountable for their actions.
The attorneys at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. focus a major part of their practice in matters involving workers compensation.

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
So many times I wanted to quick and Jeff guided me on the right path. Answered all my questions, always there when I had a concerned regarding the case. Very smart and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services. I appreciate all your help. My financial future is secure for my family and I thanks to you guys.
Words alone cannot express our utmost gratitude at the comprehensive handling of my family’s case. This was a long, drawn out case that took quite some time to come to judgment. Jeff and his team were very thorough and relentless in their pursuit of justice for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.
Jeff Korek has been outstanding in accomplishing a settlement of my lawsuit. He has done everything that a client would ask of his lawyer. He and his staff have always been honest, informative,and trust worthy . His reputation as a lawyer who gets the job done has truly been earned. For a personal injury lawyer I would recommend Jeff Korek without any doubt's
