Workers Compensation



workers_compensationIn most instances, under New York law, when you are hurt on the job, your right to recovery is limited to the benefits available under a workers’ compensation claim. With limited exceptions, your employer must participate in the workers’ compensation system, paying premiums to a workers’ compensation insurance provider. When you sustain an injury at work, you must then file a claim for recovery through your employer.

Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as it seems. More than half of all workers’ compensation claims are initially rejected. You want an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to fight for your rights, so that you get the benefits you need and deserve.
