Hear What Our Clients Say


People ask when they come to see us:

If I filed a workers compensation claim what are some benefits I may be able to receive?

While workers compensation insurance coverages very but some standard workers comp coverages include: 

  • Medical – All treatments, procedures, and office visits
  • Lost wages – Workers’ comp will still provide you with your regular pay
  • Disability – Temporary or permanent payments to make up for lost wages
  • Death benefits – Benefits paid to the survivor’s dependents, including a stipend for funeral expenses
I’d prefer to use a different language, do you speak other languages?

We understand that having legal conversations in a second language can be frustrating. Our staff speak Spanish, Russian, Polish, Chinese, Hindi, and Punjabi. We are there for you in every way.

Can I visit your law firm office and speak with an attorney in person?

Yes! Ugalde & Rzonca, LLP always has an attorney available during office hours.

What if my workplace injury was my fault?

Workers Comp Claims in the US are no-fault claims. This means you can receive workers compensation even if it is your fault.

My employer doesn’t have workers’ compensation insurance. What can I do?

New York law requires all employers to have workers’ compensation insurance. If your employer has violated the lawyer, you may need to sue them directly to receive compensation.

My employer and/or their insurance company denies my claim? Is there anything I can do?

Your workers compensation claim  may have been denied for several reasons. As your workers comp attorneys, we may be able to help. Give as a call. Some reasons for denial are below. They include: 

  • Your injury had  no witnesses
  • You did not report your injury within the time period
  • Your medical and accident report are inconsistent
  • Your medical records indicate you had drugs or alcohol in your system
  • Your workers compensation claim was filed  after being fired or laid-of
