New York Workers' Compensation Experiencing a job related injury or illness is physically, emotionally and financially draining. Although you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, your employer or their workers’ compensation carrier may give you such a difficult time in filing your claim that you may simply want to give up.

What Is Workers’ Compensation?

Under New York law, employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance to protect their employees if they suffer an injury during the course of employment or develop a disease caused by workplace conditions.

Any employee of a New York company should be covered under New York State Workers’ Compensation as long as they have suffered a work-related injury or illness. However, even though you may be entitled to benefits, successfully filing for benefits is a difficult process that demands the assistance of an experienced New York workers’ compensation attorney.

Immediate Steps to Take If Injured on The Job

If you are injured during the course of employment or suffered a work-related illness, it is important that you:

  • Immediately give notice to your employer about your injury or illness, as failure to properly report an injury or illness may jeopardize your right to workers’ compensation benefits.
  • Seek medical treatment for your injuries or illness.
  • File a workers’ compensation claim with the help of an experienced New York workers’ compensation attorney.

Benefits Available In a Workers’ Compensation Claim

Workers’ compensation includes various benefits, such as:

  • Medical Benefits: these benefits include the necessary medical care, such as doctor visits, hospital care, surgery, prescription medications and any other treatment you may need during your recovery.
  • Cash Benefits: When you suffer a work-related injury or illness, you may also be entitled to receive two-thirds of your gross pay up to $600 per week. Because the exact amount differs and may change over time based on the specific facts of your case, you should consult with a New York workers’ compensation attorney for more information.
  • Death Benefits: Certain surviving family members of workers who died due to a job-related accident or illness, such as a spouse and/or minor children, may be entitled to death benefits.

When my daughter was burned in an accident, my husband and I looked for a good lawyer who specialized in burn cases. My husband found Mr. Kenneth A. Wilhelm, and we called him and met with him. He told us he would do whatever he could for our daughter, and he did! We were very pleased with the work Mr. Wilhelm did for our daughter, and we are glad we chose such an excellent lawyer. We would choose his services again if we had to, and I would recommend his services to my family, friends, or anyone who has need of a lawyer. My daughter is doing well because of him.read more

My son was born prematurely, and I trusted the doctors and hospital to get him through the first few weeks and out of danger. The doctors made some mistakes in their procedures and my son is now injured for life because of their mistakes. I didn't know what to do. I hired Ken Wilhelm's law office because I heard from someone that Ken Wilhelm is the best. He and his attorneys held the hospital responsible for their errors. We received a very large settlement. It doesn't fix my son's suffering but I feel that my attorneys helped me get what my family deserved for our hardship.read more
