    If you have been injured on the job, you may be confused about your rights for benefits, known as worker compensation. Perhaps you don't understand how to collect benefits. You may have been misinformed about your right to file a claim, or you may believe that your injury is not serious enough for benefits.


    If you've been injured on the job or have fallen victim to an occupational disease, don't lose the benefits that you have worked so hard to earn. The best way to determine whether you are entitled to worker compensation is to contact an experienced worker compensation attorney.

    • Introduction to Worker Compensation. Nearly all employees in New York are covered by worker compensation insurance ¾ and that probably includes you. You are covered by worker compensation laws from the first day at work. If you are injured on the job, regardless of whether the injury was your fault, you may be entitled to worker compensation benefits.
    • Benefits. If you are the victim of a job injury or work-related illness, your ability to earn a living and provide for yourself and your family may be seriously impaired. Worker compensation benefits serve as a safety net, providing money for your medical bills and replacing lost wages while you recover. Worker compensation benefits are also available if you're unable to return to work, or if your injuries leave you with a permanent but partial disability. If you or a loved one dies from an on-the-job injury or illness, benefits are paid to the surviving spouse or dependents.

    ·        Classifying Your Disability. After you've been treated for an on-the-job injury or illness, your doctor may form an opinion about the amount of disability that your injury or illness has caused. This finding of disability is very important and can dramatically affect the wage benefits you get. The Website of Schwartzapfel Truhowsky Marcus P.C. explains the four categories of disability.

    • Occupational Disease. Most worker compensation claims involve job-related accidents, but in some cases employees may develop illnesses that are caused by workplace conditions. Those illnesses, known as occupational diseases, can lead to permanent disabilities or death. Victims of occupational diseases are entitled  to the same payments for medical bills and lost wages as workers who are hurt in accidents.

    ·        Business Reforms Mean Less Benefits. The worker compensation system has been in need of reform for many years. Sadly, in many states business groups have been working to erode, not support, workers’ protections.
