Understanding Uninsured Employers in New York

In New York, employers are legally required to carry workers' compensation insurance to protect their employees in case of work-related injuries or illnesses. This insurance provides essential benefits such as medical treatment, wage replacement, and disability benefits to employees who suffer injuries on the job. However, not all employers adhere to this legal requirement, leaving their workers vulnerable in the event of an accident.

An uninsured employer is one who has failed to secure workers' compensation insurance as mandated by the state. When an employee is injured while working for an uninsured employer, they may face considerable challenges when seeking compensation. This is where the expertise of a Bronx uninsured employer lawyer from Harris Firm, LLC, becomes invaluable.

The Process of Filing an Uninsured Employer Claim

Filing an uninsured employer claim can be a complex and daunting process, but with the assistance of a Bronx uninsured employer lawyer from Harris Firm, LLC, you can navigate it with confidence.

Here's a brief overview of the steps involved:

  1. Report the Injury: As with any workplace injury, it's crucial to report the incident to your employer as soon as possible. This establishes a record of the injury and its circumstances.
  2. Seek Medical Attention: Your health is the top priority. Seek immediate medical attention for your injuries. Not only is this essential for your well-being, but it also provides documentation of your injuries.
  3. Consult an Attorney: Reach out to our experienced Bronx uninsured employer lawyers at Harris Firm, LLC. We will evaluate your case, gather evidence, and develop a legal strategy tailored to your situation.
  4. Filing a Claim: We will assist you in filing a workers' compensation claim with the New York State Workers' Compensation Board. In cases involving uninsured employers, this board may have a special fund to provide benefits to injured workers.
  5. Negotiation and Settlement: Our attorneys will negotiate on your behalf to secure the compensation you deserve. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we are prepared to take your case to court to fight for your rights.
  6. Receiving Benefits: Once your claim is approved, you will begin receiving benefits such as medical coverage, wage replacement, and disability benefits, depending on the severity of your injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if my employer claims to have insurance, but I suspect they do not?

It's essential to consult an attorney to verify your employer's insurance status. We can investigate and ensure that your rights are protected.

Can I sue my uninsured employer for my injuries?

In New York, workers' compensation is a no-fault system, which means you generally cannot sue your employer for workplace injuries. However, there may be exceptions, and our attorneys can evaluate your case to determine the best course of action.

What if I am an undocumented worker? Do I still have rights?

Undocumented workers in New York have the same rights to workers' compensation benefits as documented workers. Your immigration status should not prevent you from seeking the compensation you deserve.
