New York City Work-Related Injury Attorneys
Filing a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury claim is not about taking advantage of your employer or asking for more than you deserve. In many situations, workers’ compensation benefits cannot provide the payments that are necessary to cover all the needs related to your injury.
It is helpful when your medical costs are covered, but these payments can be limited just as your lost wages compensation can be limited. Your employer or its workers’ compensation insurance provider may dispute or deny your claim, forcing you to either make do with less or appeal the denial formally.
DON'T SETTLE FOR MINIMUM PAYMENTS. GET FULL COMPENSATION THAT MEETS YOUR NEEDS.

WORK INJURY, ILLNESS AND OCCUPATIONAL DISEASE IN NEW YORK
New York workers’ compensation insurance is designed to help workers who have been injured on the job regardless of who is at fault for the injury. As long as you were not intoxicated at the time, you should qualify for benefits.
Almost all employers in New York are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If you are an independent contractor, nonprofit employee or municipal worker, you should contact us to gain a full understanding of your rights. You may not be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, but you may have other legal options, including filing a personal injury claim.
Statutes of limitations, which limit the amount of time that you have to notify your supervisor in writing or to file a claim, apply to all claims:
- Most work injury claims = 30 days
- Occupational hearing loss claims = Three months from the date of being removed from harmful noise in the workplace
- Occupational disease = Two years from the date of disablement or from the time you knew or should have known that the disease was caused by the nature of your job
Whether you injured your back at work, were exposed to harmful chemicals, were injured by a defective product, suffered a repetitive stress injury, or fell and broke a bone, you may have a case for greater compensation, and we can protect your rights.
