Manhattan—also referred to as New York City—is a city that requires no introduction. Manhattan is a city that is constantly growing and teeming with energy, all of which is fueled by the hard work of city residents. Work environments in Manhattan are as diverse as the city itself. Whether you were injured in an office, working on a construction site or on the job at a restaurant, Manhattan workers’ compensation benefits are available to provide coverage while you recover.
No. Even if your employer’s negligence caused the work accident, you don’t have the option of suing instead of collecting workers’ compensation benefits. The only time you can sue your employer is in the rare situation where your employer intentionally harmed you—for example, if your injury was caused because your employer assaulted you. You may, however, be entitled to sue a third party (non-employer) whose negligence caused your accident.
Yes. You may be entitled to wage replacement benefits to make up the difference between what you were able to earn prior to the injury and your reduced earnings while you recover.
In NYC, you will receive about 2/3 of your average weekly wages prior to the accident through workers’ compensation. While this doesn’t cover all of your benefits, the amount is not taxed—meaning that most workers will receive close to the same after-tax wage they earned prior to the injury.
