If you are injured on the job in New York State, you are likely covered by workers’ compensation law. This law applies whether you work full time or part time. Workers’ compensation pays for medical treatment for injuries, physical therapy, and will pay for time off from work if you need more than 7 days off of work because of your injuries.

To receive workers’ compensation, you must file a claim and supporting paperwork. The claim is reviewed by the Workers’ Compensation Board. The amount of benefits an injured worker receives depends on what their wages normally are, whether or not you are disabled, and, if you are disabled, the extent of the disability.
If your workers’ compensation claim is denied, it means you will not receive benefits.
