Workers compensation provides weekly cash benefits and medical care for workers who sustain work-related injuries or illnesses. To qualify for workers compensation, you must suffer from an injury or illness that occurred as a result of your employment. If you have been injured, it is important that you immediately notify your employer and file a claim for workers compensation with the Workers’ Compensation Board, a New York agency that processes workers compensation claims. The Workers’ Compensation Board is responsible for holding hearings to determine whether a worker will receive benefits and the proper amount that each worker should receive.

If your employer agrees that your illness or injury is work-related, your employer’s insurance carrier begins making payments. If, however, your employer or its insurance carrier disputes the fact that your illness or injury is work-related, the Workers’ Compensation Board will hold a hearing to determine whether you are eligible for workers compensation. During the interim, you will not be paid workers’ compensation benefits, but you may be eligible for disability benefits. Once you have qualified for workers compensation, you will be paid weekly cash benefits and medical care as directed by the Workers’ Compensation Board.
