What if I never lost time from work, and have no loss of earnings?
You can still receive Workers’ Compensation payments, and they can be substantial. One of the benefits under New York Workers’ Compensation is payment for permanent injury to a limb or facial disfigurement (including parts of the neck). If you have such permanent injury you will receive payment. Again, even if you never missed a day from work or a dime in wages.
Obtaining professional representation to assist in securing benefits in Workers’ Compensation is not only a bargain but also a sensible step to insure your rights.
Did You Know?
If you choose to accept Workers’ Compensation Benefits you can not sue your employer. However . . . If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident with another car you might be able to file a lawsuit with the driver of the other car..
