Who pays my Bills and Wages when hurt on a Job Site?
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. Worker’s compensation benefits are essentially medical bills being paid 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 but if your employer is not taking that step to help the injured worker there are way to find out who the worker’s compensation insurance company is. We will help you along with a worker’s compensation attorney make that claims so you received all the benefits you are entitled to under the law. Every worker who gets injured on the job, not one of them is obligated to pay one penny out of their pocket for their medical treatment because that’s what worker’s compensation will do for you.
So if you’re injured on a job site in the scope of your employment, please call me.
