New York state has a significant contribution to the US economy. The contribution is attributed to key industries operating in the state. Brooklyn’s contribution to the state cannot be ignored. With robust growth in the last decade, Brooklyn has added many jobs to the key industries like consulting, construction, and others. To support the operation of huge industries in the state, it has a vast workforce.

However, this growth is not without challenges. Brooklyn, with its vast workforce, has seen its share of workplace accidents. Companies have insurance against such accidents. However, either everyone is not aware or has misconceptions about Workers’ Compensation. And this lack of knowledge holds the company from claiming the compensations that they are entitled to.

FAQs

What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a system to give financial compensation to the workers who have been injured at the workplace or have developed an illness due to their work. The system is backed by the government, with each state having its prerequisites and penalties. The compensation works like insurance for an employee injured at work.

The law protects not only the employee but also the employer. The employee gets the compensation and, in return, forfeits the rights to sue the employer for negligence. The purpose of the law is to reduce litigation fees and protect everyone from the unfortunate incident.

What type of accidents are covered under Workers’ Compensation?

Any accident that occurs at your work is covered under the compensation. Depending on the industry and the workplace, a range of accidents falls under workers’ comp. A few of the common accident reasons are given below.

  • Scaffolding accidents at the construction site
  • Forklift accidents in warehouses and factories
  • Electric accidents
  • Falls at the workplace due to debris and spilled liquid
  • Defective or malfunction of equipment or machinery
  • Hazardous or toxic materials
  • Illness due to long hours of driving or sitting jobs
What are the steps to claim the Workers’ Compensation?

You should follow a few vital steps to get the compensation as laid down by the law. Any deviation from law and you might risk losing the payment.

  • Seek immediate medical attention after the accident. If it’s a long-term illness, carefully collect and document all the medical tests and prescriptions from your doctor.
  • You need to alert your supervisor or manager about the incident as quickly as possible. It should have details of the accident and the injury. The note should be in writing within 30 days of the accident else, and you risk losing the compensation.
  • In cases where you have been diagnosed with an illness due to workplace conditions, you should alert your manager within twenty-four months from the time you have known about the illness.
  • You need to complete a workers’ compensation form called Form C-3. Once done, send it to the appropriate office of the Workers’ Compensation Board. You can access the form from their website or your employer.
  • Keep track of all the related communications making sure you don’t miss any hearings and notifications for your cases.
Will the employer deduct my salary to pay for the compensation?

Often employees are under the misconception that the employer pays the damages from their pocket or their payroll will be deducted if asked for compensation. However, the reality is different. All the employers are obligated to by workers’ compensation insurance. When any worker is injured, the insurance company pays the settlement, and your employer will not deduct it from your salary.

I was an UBER passenger and the car got rear-ended by a utility van. I called 1-800-HURT-511 since a friend dealt with them before and I was glad I did. My attorney was extremely professional and aggressive when necessary. He was transparent from the start and didn’t complicate things unnecessarily.

I highly recommend HURT-511! When the insurance companies turned me away after a scary scooter accident that nearly killed me, a lawyer at HURT-511 stayed and fought for me and recovered the entire policy! Their staff is well-informed and always available to answer my questions. They treated me like one of their own and I made the right decision to stick with them. Thank you so much!
