Workers' Compensation Attorney in Manhattan
If you get injured at your workplace in Manhattan, you can file a workers' compensation claim with your employer. The purpose of this insurance is to ensure that you get the care you need to recover from your injuries and some form of compensation to cover certain losses you might have incurred as a result of the injuries.
That said, for one reason or another, the insurance company might deny your claim, leaving you with a huge financial burden. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may also have a rough time seeking the medical attention you need to recover and return to work.
Even worse, some of these injuries can be life-changing, so you need something to cushion you, especially financially, until you are able to work again. If the injuries cause permanent disability, you should be able to obtain the kind of compensation that will factor in this aspect and ensure that you feel whole again.
That's where a Manhattan workers' compensation lawyer comes in to fight for your rights. If you have been injured on the job, please fill out our free case evaluation form today. An attorney from Morgan and Morgan, the nation's largest and most powerful injury firm, might be able to represent you.

Morgan & Morgan
What Does Workers' Comp Insurance Cover?
In Manhattan, workers' compensation insurance typically covers the following:
- Medical expenses related to the injury or illness
- Wage replacement for time off work
- Rehabilitation and vocational training
- Compensation for permanent disabilities
Note that this insurance won't cover everything – there are limits. By contacting us for a free case evaluation, we may be able to explore other ways to maximize your claim and recover damages beyond what this type of insurance covers.
Can I File a Claim as an Independent Contractor?
Independent contractors are usually not eligible for workers' compensation benefits. However, we've seen cases where employers have misclassified their employees to avoid paying workers' compensation insurance. For this reason, you should always have your case reviewed by an expert to determine whether there is any foul play involved.
I Just Found Out That My Employer Does Not Have Workers' Comp Insurance. What Do I Do?
In that case, you may still have options. You can contact us to explore potential legal remedies, such as pursuing a personal injury claim against your employer.
Can I File a Claim if I'm Partly at Fault for the Accident?
Yes, you can, and that's because workers' compensation is generally a no-fault system. That said, this insurance won't cover injuries resulting from intentional misconduct or substance abuse while on the job.
Can My Employer Retaliate Against Me for Filing a Workers' Comp Claim?
In Manhattan and throughout New York City, it is illegal for employers to retaliate against employees for filing workers' compensation claims. If you suspect retaliation, you should document incidents and contact us for a free assessment.
