We have seen injuries happen irrespective of where we work, whether it’s a factory, an office, or on the road as a driver. Workplace accidents or work-related injuries are not new. The injuries are so commonplace that either you or someone you know have been through some form of workplace injury. Long Island businesses are no different. If you have been injured at work, workers’ Compensation can help you get your life back on track.

FAQs

What is workers' Compensation?

When an employee is injured or has developed an illness due to work, the employee is eligible for workers’ comp. The law protects injured employees, recover from injury or illness, and return to work as soon as possible.

The law has been designed to protect both the employee and the employer. In return for compensation, employees forfeit from suing their employer for negligence. The intention is to lower the litigation fees and protect everyone from the unfortunate accident. Your employer does not pay for your workers’ compensation claims, the money comes from an insurance policy.

What kind of injuries are covered under workers' Comp?

Practically all injuries are covered under the law; whether the injury or illness happened in an office, construction site or factory.

  • Back, neck, or knee injuries – often, employees with desk jobs or driving vehicle for long hours causing stress 
  • Hearing Loss – Workers in factories with high decibel noise can either lose hearing or cause reduced hearing capacity
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – Compression of medium nerve affecting wrist and hand
  • Bone fractures, muscle strains, or disfigurement – Due to slip, trip, or fall, fractures can happen, causing temporary disability
  • Permanent disability due to loss of limb or amputation
  • Mental trauma

If you have suffered any injury above or are not clear on your illness, contact a workers’ compensation lawyer in Long Island. Our attorney will help you understand if you have a case.

What kind of injuries are excluded from workers' Compensation?

Workers’ compensation laws do not cover everything; a few exceptions are as below:-

  • A person will not get compensation if the worker is drunk or on drugs at the time of the accident. The employers can ask for medical tests to check whether the employee is intoxicated. 
  • The going-and-coming rule states that the employer isn’t liable for an employee injured while commuting to and from work. The travel time is not a part of employment; hence workers’ compensation cannot be claimed.
What are the steps to take after a workplace accident?

First, if you or anyone is injured at work and has severe injuries, immediately call paramedics. You have to inform your company or employer about the incident details in writing within 30 days. Baring to do so might risk your claim. You also need to file an Employee Claim (Form C-3) with the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board (Board). Forms can be downloaded or completed from the Board’s website (wcb.ny.gov).

Even if you are not injured, you should report the incident for employers to take safety precautions. There is a possibility you might not experience the effect immediately but later. Filling a report protects you and will be helpful in your claim process.

Does the employer pay the compensation?

It’s a myth that an employer must pay for the compensation. Hence, workers don’t apply for the claim fearing losing their job. The employer does not pay compensation from their pocket. The insurance company pays the damages.

It is mandatory in the state of New York for all employers, too, by Workers’ compensation insurance. This insurance covers medical expenses, loss of pay, and other accident-related expenditures.

Я был пассажиром UBER, и машину сзади сбил грузовой фургон. Я позвонил по номеру 1-800-HURT-511, так как друг уже имел с ними дело, и я был рад, что я это сделал. Мой адвокат был предельно профессиональным и агрессивным при необходимости . Он был прозрачен с самого начала и не усложнял дела без надобности.
