The accident may have been over in a moment, but the battle is just beginning. By law, you are entitled to workers' compensation, which includes the full cost of reasonable and necessary medical treatment as well as a percentage of your lost wages.

Your rights after a work accident in Brooklyn
When you’re hurt on the job in New York, you get workers’ compensation. It doesn’t matter whether the accident was your employer’s fault or even if your own negligence caused it; if you were at work when it happened, you are covered, period. Workers’ comp pays for the full cost of your reasonable and necessary medical treatment, including hospital bills, surgery and other medical treatment, physical therapy, medications, medical devices, and so on. It also provides partial replacement of your lost wages if you can’t work due to the injury and additional benefits for some permanent injuries.
If your accident was caused by a third party, such as a vendor, client, motorist, or equipment manufacturer, then you may also have a third-party personal injury claim. Such claims can provide additional compensation not covered by workers’ comp, like your pain and suffering or excess wage loss.
In short, you have legal recourse as an injured worker – but you’re also up against insurance companies that know the system well and know how to use it to their advantage. However, you don’t have to go it alone. You can level the playing field with the right legal representation.
