Injured Worker Legal Assistance Project – NYSBA Pro Bono Training
The New York State Workers' Compensation Board's Injured Workers Legal Assistance Project ("IWLAP") helps injured workers obtain medical treatment through the assistance of pro bono attorneys.
The New York State Bar Association ("NYSBA") has partnered with the Workers' Compensation Board to connect volunteer attorneys with injured workers seeking representation in medical-only claims.
In these medical-only claims, the insurance carrier or self-insured employer who pays the medical benefits has accepted liability but is disputing the medical treatment sought by the injured worker. These cases typically pose a challenge for injured workers seeking legal representation as no attorney fees are awarded when there are no lost wages.
This training is required for volunteers before being eligible to participate in the program.
