SIMPLIFY THE REPORTING PROCESS:
We review and provide guidance on all reports of injury before they are submitted to the N.Y.S Insurance Fund, 199 Church Street, New York, NY 10007 and the Workers’ Compensation Board, PO Box 5205, Binghamton, NY 13902.
- Medical Only/ No Lost Time report should be completed when possible to reduce the impact on reserves.
- Minor First Aid claims that qualify may be self paid. We review and adjust all bills to the medical fee schedule rate. This reduces your experience modification and increases your dividends.
- Just because an incident happened at work does not always make it workers compensation. We have many examples where the employer saved thousands of dollars with our guidance of knowing when to file a disability claim verses a workers’ compensation claim.
We deal directly with the New York State Insurance Fund, the employee, the employer, the physician, and Workers’ Compensation Board.
- To ensure the proper and timely completion of all the required forms
- Track claims to expedite payment
- Interact with the case managers for claim review
- Facilitate Early Return to Work
- Guidance and Assistance in NYWCB Hearing issues

SAFETY PAYS DIVIDENDS:
Friedlander Group has been able to return to its safety conscious members an average dividend of 36.4% over the past 16 years.
"The Friedlander Group was a tremendous asset with the last account that I placed into their safety group. I was trying to move a large and complicated restaurant account out of a trust and into their safety group. Everyone at Friedlander that I worked with had one goal - to place the account in the group. They helped in every way possible to secure the account. I can't say enough about the job everyone at the Friedlander Group did. Thank you!"
