We can help. The Brooklyn Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service can help you find workers’ compensation and disability attorneys when you need them.
In these challenging economic times, you cannot afford to miss any more work than you have to. You have bills to pay and maybe dependents as well who rely on your salary or wages. Then while you’re out on disability, you wonder whether you’ll have a job to return to.
If you’ve been injured at work, you’re entitled to workers’ compensation. If you’re not getting the benefits that you think you may be entitled to, you should talk with an experienced, qualified attorney who can advise you about your rights and represent you if you need to fight for your benefits.
Disability benefits and Social Security Disability (SSD)
If you’re unable to work and think you may be entitled to some type of disability benefit from your employer’s insurance company or from the State or federal government, you should contact us to consult with an attorney about what you may be entitled to. If you’re already receiving benefits but think your payments are too low, or if your benefits were recently discontinued, a qualified disability attorney may be able to advise you about that as well.
Let us help you find the qualified, prescreened workplace injury or disability attorney who is right for you.
The Brooklyn Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service is Brooklyn’s oldest and largest attorney referral service, and is the only referral service in Brooklyn that has been certified by the American Bar Association.
We can refer you to an attorney in any of the five Boroughs of New York, as well as the neighboring Counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Rockland, and Westchester.
We have over 150 prescreened lawyers with expertise in virtually all areas of the law. Each lawyer on our panel must meet or exceed very high standards of experience and qualifications.

What Does It Cost?
The first consultation with one of our qualified workers’ compensation or disability attorneys is free of charge, which entitles you to up to one-half hour with the attorney to whom you were referred.
After the first meeting with the attorney, you should discuss with the lawyer the cost of additional advice or representation. There are no further charges to you from the LRS and you are under no obligation to hire the workers’ compensation or disability lawyer to whom you have been referred.
