We're Here To Help You

If you have been injured or become ill due to a work-related incident, it is important that you know the options available to you in filing a claim. The first step to take is to file a report to your employer, fully explaining the accident and the injuries that resulted. There are a few ways to file the Employee Claim (C-3). The options you have available are filling out the form online, calling the New York Compensation Board to fill out the form over the phone, or filling out a paper form and mailing it to the Board office.

The claim must be filed within two years of the date of the accident or when the illness became evident. The process of filing a claim should occur soon after seeking medical treatment and informing your employer of the incident. The doctor and employer will also file their own reports after they have been notified by the injured worker. The Benefits must start within 18 days of the insurance company receiving the C-2 form from the workplace and will depend on the accident and situations involving the employee.

For quality assistance with this matter, it could be highly beneficial to enlist the help of a workers' comp attorney from our firm. Contact our firm today if you feel that you can benefit from the experience and knowledge of a workers' compensation attorney!
