Worker’s Compensation Insurance
If you get hurt on the job, your employer is required by law to pay for workers’ compensation benefits. You could get hurt by:
- One event at work. Examples: hurting your back, getting burned by a chemical, getting hurt in a car accident while at work
- Repeated exposures at work. Examples: hurting your wrist from doing the same motion over and over, losing your hearing because of constant loud noise deliveries.
No Fault Insurance
Anyone who is injured in a motor vehicle accident, struck by a car or injured in some way by the use or operation of a motor vehicle is an “eligible injured person” and will be covered by No-Fault insurance.
In New York State, every vehicle is required to have a minimal amount of personal injury protection coverage
PERSONAL INJURY PROTECTION (PIP)
If you are injured in an accident, you can be reimbursed and get the medical treatment you need without having to determine who is liable for the accident.
