New York’s workers’ compensation law was created to provide a safety net for employees who are injured on the job.
Workers who suffer injuries or develop medical conditions as a result of their employment are entitled to full coverage for medical care, free of deductibles or co-pays. Also, if workers’ injuries prevent them from working, they are eligible to receive two-thirds compensation for lost income as they recover.
Employers pay for this medical care and compensation through workers’ compensation insurance, which they purchase from insurance companies. However, because workers’ compensation claims can be extremely expensive for both employers and insurance companies, both often find ways to keep injured employees from receiving the medical care and financial compensation they need and are legally entitled to receive.
