The Workers' Compensation Law Firm

Workers' compensation attorney, Jim Harrison, at The Harrison Law Office believes that every workplace injury is a serious injury. You count on your income to provide for your basic needs and support your family. Losing your ability to bring home an income can be catastrophic. The additional stress and hassle in receiving your necessary medical treatment can be even more overwhelming. We will fight for you and help you through every step of the workers' compensation process.

About Workers' Compensation

When an injury or illness happens on the job, the employer must be held responsible for helping to support the worker during their recovery. Fortunately for injured workers and their families, the State of New York requires all public and private sector employers to carry workers' compensation insurance if they employ any workers.

Workers' compensation insurance is intended to provide medical benefits, replacement wages, and more for employees who suffer work-related diseases, injuries, or other medical issues. If you got hurt at work and believe you are entitled to these benefits, The Harrison Law Office can help to ensure you receive the maximum amount you deserve.

Meet Jim Harrison

Owner and managing attorney, Jim Harrison, of The Harrison Law Office focuses his practice on representing injured workers in their claims for workers' compensation benefits and has been doing so for over two decades. Unlike many law firms, where your file may end up on the desk of an associate, or in the office of a non-attorney, Jim Harrison is an experienced attorney and handles your case exclusively—every step of the way.

In addition to filing the necessary and required forms to meet all deadlines, Jim understands the needed medical evidence to document the severity of your condition. Relying on "independent" physicians who perform exams for insurance companies is a common yet unfortunately costly error committed by unrepresented claimants. Furthermore, a qualified, experience workers' compensation attorney, like Jim Harrison, can estimate the "worth" of your case and evaluate any settlement offers much more accurately than your co-workers, friends, or family members can.
