What to do if my Employer does not have Worker’s Compensation

Unfortunately there are many instances when employers do not have worker’s compensation in effect on the day of a worker’s accident. However, no worker is left unprotected and law affords worker’s compensation benefits even if their employer is not insured for worker’s compensation.

In the State of New York, there is an entity known as the uninsured employer’s fund which will serve as the worker’s compensation carrier to pay the same benefits like medical bills and lost wages for that injured worker. No worker who is injured on the job should have to pay a penny for their medical treatment and none of them ever do.  If the employer is not insured we will help make the claim with the uninsured employer’s fund to make sure that you get all of the worker’s compensation benefit that you are entitled to.

If you need an attorney who handles these accidents in the workplace, please call me.
