The New York State Workers’ Compensation system is designed to provide assistance to injured employees who are hurt on the job. Benefits can include monetary payments for lost time from work, coverage of your medical bills, and reimbursement for out of pocket expenses.  While these fundamental rights help you while you recover from an injury, the system itself can be very complicated, confusing and frustrating.
