Although the New York Workers’ Compensation System is supposed to be a “no-fault” system, it often becomes an adversarial process pitting the employer and insurance carrier against the injured worker. Additionally, the Workers’ Compensation Board is routinely closing cases without a hearing and without fully protecting the rights of the injured worker.
