New York Workers’ Compensation: What You Need to Know If You’ve Been Hurt on the Job

Occupational accidents and illnesses are far more common than most people realize, with tens of thousands of workers in New York State suffering on-the-job injuries each year. After a workplace accident, employees may be seriously injured, in need of costly medical care, and facing unplanned absences from their jobs as a result. Concerns about the injury’s long-term impact on both health and finances can be overwhelming and deeply distressing. Fortunately, New York state law specifically protects workers who find themselves in this position.

If you were hurt—or developed an occupational disease—while working for someone else in the state of New York, you’re likely covered by workers’ compensation and entitled to medical treatment and other benefits. However, New York workers’ compensation cases are notoriously complex. Without legal counsel, you’re going it alone against a multi-billion-dollar insurance company and its team of corporate attorneys and claims examiners—a frightening thought, to be sure. You need a reputable and accomplished attorney to fight for your rights, and you’ve come to the right place.
