Understanding The Workers’ Compensation Benefits You May Receive For Your Corona, NY Workplace Injury

When a worker has been injured on the job or suffers from a work-related illness, New York’s workers’ compensation laws provide benefits to help the worker recover. Workers’ compensation benefits include the following:

  • Medical benefits: workers may receive coverage for medical treatment that is the result of a workplace injury or illness. The medical treatment must be considered reasonable and necessary, and the health care provider must be an authorized provider 
  • Temporary disability benefits: these benefits apply when a worker must take more than seven days off of work to recover from a work-related injury or illness. These monetary benefits are intended to replace part of the wages that were lost. Temporary disability benefits will not be provided for the first seven days unless the worker is off of work for more than fourteen days
  • Permanent partial disability benefits: these benefits are provided based on a predetermined schedule, according to New York’s workers’ compensation laws, and based on the specific body part that has been affected
  • Permanent total disability benefits: these benefits apply when an injured worker’s condition will not improve even with additional treatment. To receive these benefits, the worker must be evaluated by a physician who will determine if the injury has resulted in permanent limitations. Generally speaking, permanent total disability means the employee is unable to work at all because of the limitations but there are workers with certain types of disabilities that may be able to earn a limited amount of money without losing their disability benefits

In New York, the statute of limitations for filing a workers’ compensation claim is two years. The clock starts ticking from the date the workplace injury occurred, or from the last payment of compensation, whichever is later.  If you have suffered a workplace injury or illness, and are unsure of whether you can meet the statute of limitations, it is important to consult with an experienced workers compensation attorney who can advise you of the best course of action.

Frequently Asked Questions About Workers’ Compensation Claims In Corona, NY

FAQ: I was partly to blame for my workplace injury. Can I still file a claim?

Yes. If you were injured on the job, you are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault for the accident. You are not required to prove that anyone else — your employer or co-workers — did anything wrong. Even if you were negligent and you caused your own injury, you are still entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits.

FAQ: I am afraid to file a workers’ compensation claim — won’t my employer punish me for reporting my injury?

If you file a workers’ compensation claim, your employer may not fire you, discriminate against you, or retaliate against you in any way. When you file a workers’ compensation claim, you give up the right to file a lawsuit against your employer or a co-workers for any additional compensation. Because workers’ compensation claims do not require proving fault and the employer is not held liable, both employer and employee are protected from further actions.
