Can I Receive New York Workers' Compensation Benefits for a Car Accident Injury?
Yes. If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident in New York State while in the course of employment, you may be entitled to New York Workers' Compensation benefits. Depending on the cause and severity of your injuries, you could receive these Workers’ Compensation benefits in addition to a Personal Injury settlement, and/or Social Security Disability benefits. MCV Law is unique in that we can assist you with any of these claims individually, or handle multiple claims in combination.
Examples of motor vehicle accident scenarios that can result in New York Workers’ Compensation benefits being awarded include:
-A salesman getting injured in a car accident while driving to his next meeting

-A truck driver suffering injuries from a collision on the highway
