Important Information About Your Occupation

Unfortunately, injuries can occur in the course of many occupations. What constitutes an injury and whether it is compensable as a Workers’ Compensation claim are not always easy to discern. If you are not sure whether your injury qualifies for Workers’ Compensation, it is still important to inform your employer in writing that you’ve been injured within 30 days to protect your right to pursue the claim. Below are examples of interesting claims that were established at the New York Workers’ Compensation Board with our firm’s representation:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from being in close proximity to gunshots while traveling on a bus from a hotel to airport during layover
