Your rights after an injury at work in New York
When you're hurt on the job, you have legal rights under New York law, even if the accident was your fault. Workers' compensation pays for the full cost of your medical treatment for your job-related injury or illness, as well as partial replacement of lost wages if you can't work due to the injury. If you have to work reduced hours or take on lighter duties for lower pay, workers’ comp pays part of the difference in income.
If you have a permanent injury to an extremity - for example, if you've lost some use of your arm or leg - then you may also be eligible for permanent partial disability benefits, even if that injury does not affect your ability to do your job. And if you lost a loved one to a fatal work injury, you can file a claim for workers’ compensation death benefits.
If a negligent third party, such as a vendor or client, was involved in your accident, you can file a third-party claim as well. Third-party work injury claims can get you compensation for costs not covered by workers’ comp, such as your pain and suffering.
In short, the full value of your work injury compensation can easily be in the tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars. That’s why you need an experienced work injury attorney to investigate your claim and calculate the full value.
We have a proven track record of success fighting for fair value for NYC work injuries
While you have a right to workers’ compensation, getting that compensation is rarely easy. Your employer and their insurance company may dispute whether your injury was really work-related. They may downplay the extent of the injury or argue that some treatment is not "reasonable and necessary" and, therefore, not covered by workers' comp. You may be under pressure to come back to work before you’re ready or involved in a dispute with the insurance company over payment for a particular medication or treatment. They know the system, and they will use it to their advantage – at your expense.
That's why you need an experienced attorney on your side after an injury at work. We have a strong track record - over 100,000 clients represented and billions recovered for injured workers in the Five Boroughs and beyond. We know how to get full value for work-related injuries and how to stand up to the insurance companies to get real results for our clients.
