Workers’ Compensation Can Help You Get Back on Your Feet
The majority of workers in New York are covered by the state’s Workers’ Compensation system. Employers are required to pay for insurance that is overseen by the Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB).
Guiding You Through New York’s Workers’ Compensation System
The Workers’ Compensation system is designed to replace part of your lost income and pay your medical bills, if you have been injured on the job or as a result of your work activities. Workers’ Compensation benefits can include:
- Up to two-thirds of your regular wage with a cap of $792.07 per week (as of 7/1/12)
- Payment for medical care directly related to the workplace injury or illness, including continued care you must file for benefits within 30 days of the original injury or diagnosis of illness
- Reimbursement for reasonable out-of-pocket medical and transportation expenses
You may also be able to secure benefits for vocational rehabilitation benefits, unemployment insurance, union benefits, private disability or Social Security Disability benefits.
The sooner you contact our New York Workers’ Compensation attorneys, the faster we will be able to obtain your benefits for you. We offer free consultations and accept all cases on contingency, meaning we only get paid after securing compensation for you.
