The hard-working members of the White Plains workforce reflect the New York spirit. We work very hard to support our families and fulfill our dreams. The last thing we need to experience is an injury on the job. This is a huge inconvenience that can significantly set back our finances. You may be eligible for payments under workers’ compensation insurance if you sustain an injury while at work that prevents you from working, whether it was caused by a serious accident or exposure, overuse, or strain.

Additionally, your capacity to file for and receive workers’ compensation payments will not be impacted by your immigration status. Even if you’re an undocumented worker in New York, you have the right to workers’ compensation if you get wounded on the job. Don’t be afraid to speak with us. We are here to help. Come in and speak to a White Plains Workers’ compensation lawyer to learn about your rights.
