Things To Know About NYC Workers’ Compensation
Workplace injuries and illnesses are a fact of life in New York. Certain sectors of the labor market are more prone to report workers’ compensation cases than others. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that in the private industry alone, 129,000 nonfatal job injuries and illnesses were reported in New York in 2020, similar to the statistics for 2019. The highest rates of incidents occurred in two large sectors of the economy: education and health; and trade, transportation and utilities. However, any line of work can be the context for a job injury or occupational illness.
The New York State Workers’ Compensation Board provides step-by-step instructions online for filing workers’ compensation claims. What the self-service forms on the website cannot accomplish, however, is to overcome denials or resolve disagreements between employees and employers or workers’ compensation insurers. All too often, our attorneys hear stories of injustice. We work to help New York City workers right the wrongs they sometimes experience after filing workers’ compensation claims.
