    Workers Compensation

    You should file a claim on workers compensation. Information about New York's workers compensation regulations may be found at: http://www.wcb.state.ny.us/content/m...uredWorker.jsp

        Three Insurers

        I'm not sure if I understand your question. However, if you are asking if you can file a medical claim with your medical insurer in addition to the workers compensation, most medical companies will not cover claims filed with workers compensation.
