New York Workers’ Compensation Laws

New York City Workers’ Compensation Regulations

People tend not to think about their rights after an on-the-job accident until they have actually been injured. When injuries do occur, pain, worry, time-consuming medical treatment and even prescribed narcotics can make it difficult to have a full understanding of one’s rights.

If you’ve been injured, contact us for a no-charge discussion of your rights. Call (646) 647-3398 or contact us online. When you work with us, you will speak with a partner at the firm.

Workers’ Compensation Facts

Here are a few facts about workers’ compensation law that are important to any claim:

  • Workers’ compensation benefits provide for a portion of lost wages, medical expenses and disability compensation for injured workers.
  • Often, seriously injured workers’ claims are denied by administrative law judges (ALJs).
  • Injured workers cannot sue their employer or co-workers following injuries.
  • Workers can sue negligent third parties, including contractors and subcontractors.

If you have been injured in a construction site accident, we can refer you to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer and then handle your third-party claim when circumstances permit.
