I’m attorney Paul Harding with the law firm Martin, Harding and Mazzotti – the Heavy Hitters – here in Albany, New York. Workers’ compensation is a state-mandated insurance program that provides compensation to employees who suffer job-related injuries and illnesses.
Each state has its own laws and programs for workers’ comp and often times they can be confusing. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and frustrated. If you’ve become ill or injured at work you’re likely to have a lot of questions:
How will my bills get paid?
Will I get the proper medical treatment?
Are my rights being protected?
The best way to address any questions about a workers’ comp claim is to consult with an experienced, trusted attorney. In fact, there is no good reason not to consult a lawyer when dealing with the complexities of workers’ compensation.
Our team at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti has been representing people like you in their workers’ comp cases since 1994.

Workers’ Compensation Overview
Workers’ Compensation benefits are provided to individuals who have sustained work-related injuries. Benefits including financial payments and/or medical care are provided by the employer’s insurance carrier. Submitting a claim requires patience and strict timelines to qualify for workers compensation benefits. However, our experienced staff will be there every step of the way to get the money you and your family deserves.
Who Qualifies for Workers’ Compensation?
Not every injury qualifies. Only those disabilities that are related to an accidental injury in the course of employment are eligible for compensation.
Here are some injuries that may qualify you for benefits:
- Injuring an arm, leg, finger or toe
- Facial scar
- Loss of hearing or vision
Who’s At Fault?
If the Workers’ Compensation Board finds that you have a compensable injury, you are entitled to lost wages payments, as well as, Workers’ Compensation medical coverage pursuant to Medical Treatment Guidelines.
Workers’ Compensation is a “no fault” benefit. That means the amount a person receives is not decreased by his/her carelessness nor increased if it is the employers fault.

“I had never dealt with any Worker’s Comp/Personal Injury issues prior to my injury and thought I could handle it on my own. After a year of attempting to do so, I realized I was getting nowhere and needed help! Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP stepped in and handled every aspect of my case. Their team of associates got my surgery approved and my case settled. I could have never accomplished it without their assistance.”
