Injured While Working from Home? Our NYC Workers’ Compensation Attorneys Can Fight for You
Many people work from home, especially in recent months in New York and around the country due to the Coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic. What some remote workers might not realize is they are eligible for workers’ compensation coverage in New York in most cases.

That’s because our team of attorneys has decades of experience handling workers’ comp claims for people throughout New York State.
