When someone is injured at work, their employer must have Workers Compensation insurance for them. All the employers in New York are required to provide workers compensation insurance for their employees. Even undocumented workers, those with no green card or social security numbers have a right to receive workers compensation when injured on the job.
It is important to note, “Workers’ Compensation is an Insurance”. Your employer pays for this insurance so you can receive monetary benefits and medical care if you are injured, disabled, become sick or develop an occupational illness at your job.
Under New York law, an employee injured at work cannot sue his or her employer because they will receive worker’s compensation benefits. This is sometimes referred to as the Workers Compensation bar since workers are barred or forbidden from suing their employers. Workers can sue any third party responsible in whole or in part for their injuries.
It is important to have a workers compensation lawyer representing you AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Call Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP (‘Mlawfirm’) to protect your rights because insurance companies, adjuster or representative has significant training and years of experience in eliciting statements from people which can distort the truth and/or facts only serving to accomplish their goal of eliminating or significantly diminishing your claim.
If you or someone you know has suffered a serious workplace injury, Mlawfirm is there to assist you.
