Helping Workers Obtain Compensation After Accidents

The New York workers’ compensation benefits program was designed to enable workers’ to quickly obtain the money they need following workplace injuries.

Instead, they cover basic necessities such as medical expenses and a portion of lost wages and income following full or partial disability.
