The many benefits under workers’ compensation

If you are injured on the job in the state of New York, there is a good chance that you will take some time to learn more about the workers' compensation system. You don't want to delay in doing so, as this could harm your ability to receive an approval.

After seven days away from your job, the workers' compensation system in New York will provide the following:

  • A maximum payment of two-thirds of your weekly salary
  • Reimbursement for any medical care related to the work injury


As the owner of a small business, it gives me great satisfaction to fight for contractors and other small businesses who face burdensome, and even overwhelming, workers' compensation penalties for not having insurance--penalties the state hits you with even though in my experience you are so often innocent of any deliberate wrongdoing. That is why I take the time to share with you articles that you may find of use. I hope you find the article helpful, and of course, I'm always here to discuss your workers' compensation penalty.

What does proper lifting technique look like?

If you work a job in which you lift heavy loads, day in and day out, you need to take care of your body. This means knowing what proper lifting technique looks like.

Getting back to work after a workplace accident

A work accident can have a serious and long-term impact your life. It is not easy to recover and get back to work, but with medical care and time off work, you may be able to eventually return to work. In fact, one of the main purposes of workers' compensation benefits is to help a worker get better so that he or she can return to the workforce. 

If you are preparing to get back to your New York job after a work accident, there are important things to know to help you protect your interests. Getting back to work could mean that you will have more income, get promotions and meet other career-related goals. However, you may have several questions about how this process will work for you.
