In New York State when a worker is injured on a job site or just in the scope of their employment, they are entitled to Worker’s Compensation benefits.
These are essentially medical bills and lost wages being paid to the injured worker.
Usually the employer will aid the injured worker in making the claim for Worker’s Compensation Benefits.
If your employer is not taking the steps to help you, the injured worker, there are ways to find out and we will help you make that claim so that you receive all of the benefits that you are entitled to under the law.
If you are injured on a job site during the scope of your employment, you are not obligated to pay a single penny out of pocket for your medical treatment.
