WORKERS' COMPENSATION

If you have been injured on the job, or have suffered a work-related injury or illness, you are entitled to benefits under the New York State Workers’ Compensation Law. Those benefits include payment of doctor bills and cash payments to you for lost time from work or reduction in earnings due to your injury or illness.

An employer may not charge employees for this coverage. An employee may not sue his employer for benefits. In workers’ compensation, neither the employer nor the employee is deemed at fault for the accident or injury. In some cases, however, where a third party is at fault for the injury, an additional lawsuit against that third party may be possible in addition to the workers’ compensation claim.
