Every state establishes legal timelines for filing claims in a state’s civil court, known as “statutes of limitations”. 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.

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.
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.
