Who is eligible for workers' compensation benefits?

In New York, most employees are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. You may be eligible for workers’ comp if you were injured at work due to a workplace hazard. You may be eligible for additional benefits if your injury was caused by a coworker’s or employer’s negligence.

Workers' comp benefits include:

To be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you must have reported the workplace injury to your employer within 90 days of the incident. If you were not injured at work, but your injury was caused by a workplace hazard, you may still be eligible for benefits if you were injured within one year of the hazard being reported to your employer.

The workers’ compensation system is designed to be user-friendly. However, employers are legally allowed to challenge workers’ comp claims. If your employer contests your claim, you will need an attorney to represent you.

If your employer contests your claim, you may need a workers’ compensation attorney. Keith Silverstein & Associates can help you fight for the benefits you deserve.
