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 claim.

The NYS Workers' Compensation Board is a state agency that oversees your claim. The Board determines the amount and type of benefits you will receive based upon your claim. The benefits are paid by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier. Each claim is different and must be handled on its own merits.

Consultations are free. There are never any out of pocket legal fees. Legal fees are awarded by the New York State Workers' Compensation Board, and are deducted from any monetary awards made to the injured worker by that agency. If there are no such awards, the injured person is not liable for legal fees.

The workers’ compensation process can be complex, long and tedious. The insurance carrier works for your employer, not for you. The insurance company does not have your best interest at heart.

The Law Firm of Gilbert, Blaszcyk & Milburn has many years of experience working both sides of this complex legal system. Let our expertise work for you to ensure that you receive the benefits which you deserve.
