Workers' Compensation Overview

Workers’ Compensation benefits are provided to individuals who have sustained work-related injuries. The benefits that may be provided include cash and/or medical care, provided by the employer’s insurance carrier. These benefits are very helpful when someone is unable to work but it still required to pay his/her bills. Submitting a claim comes with strict timetables that must be obeyed in order to qualify for workers compensation. Our respected workers’ compensation attorneys are here to get you the money you and your family deserve.

Do You Qualify?

There are a few instances in which a worker can be disqualified from workers compensation benefits, including, but not limited to:

  • The injury resulted from the individual being intoxicated (both drugs and alcohol)
  • The individual had the intention of hurting themselves or others
  • Injury resulted when an employee’s conduct violated company policy or committed a serious crime

Whose At Fault?

Workers’ Compensation cases do not leave anyone at fault, and therefore does not adjust the amount paid based on the level of carelessness. The injured employee will receive no money until the employer or insurance carrier agrees that the injury or illness was in fact, a work-related event. New York’s Workers’ Compensation Board processes the workers’ compensation claims, and if approved, directs employers’ insurance carrier to pay cash benefits and medical care, in which the amounts are determined by the Board.

Disputed Claims

In the instance of a disputed claim, a Workers’ Compensation judge will decide which party is correct, then, and only then, will cash benefits and medical care be released to the injured employee through Workers’ Compensation. 

Believe it or not, if you are waiting for a judge to decide your case, you are could also be eligible for disability benefits, and able to collect during this time. Be aware, any accepted benefits from the Disability Program will be deducted from your future Workers’ Compensation settlement.
