New York laws protect workers who are injured on the job. Workers’ compensation provides most employees with coverage for medical bills and loss of earnings resulting from on the job injuries regardless of whether the accident was your fault or not.
If you have experienced a disabling workplace injury, you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to win the wage and health benefits you need to continue to maintain your way of life. No matter how severe your injury is, you need a strong advocate alongside you who will investigate the cause of your accident and pursue a legal remedy.
Occupational and work-related injury claims may include:
- Broken bones

- Sight and hearing loss
- Lung diseases
- Carpal tunnel
