You found us because you or a loved one got injured at work - you may be in constant pain, perhaps you can't work due to injuries, you're overwhelmed with workers' compensation forms or your benefits stopped and you can't make ends meet. Rest assured, you've come to the right place.
We've been aggressively defending the rights of hard-working New Yorkers who have been hurt on the job. We help injured workers navigate the complicated workers' compensation insurance claim process, from filing a workers' compensation claim and choosing a doctor to understanding workers' compensation benefits or submitting wage and hour claims. We prepare for every case as if we are going to trial-and have no hesitation to do so if needed-which motivates opponents to settle out of court and with a sizable amount.

Workers who are injured on the job in New York have two responsibilities immediately after an on-the-job accident. First, the injured worker needs to obtain necessary medical treatment. Second, the employee needs to promptly notify his or her supervisor or manager about the accident.
Your employer will then report the injury or illness to the state's Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) and the company's workers' compensation insurance carrier. By law, injured workers are required to file Form C-3 (Employee's Claim for Compensation) with the Board within two years from the date of the accident or from the date the medical condition was discovered to cause an occupational disease
