Hello, I’m New York disability attorney, Brian Mittman.  Thank you for joining me today.  A question I often get is I’m injured while on a coffee break will I be covered for workers’ compensation.  The simple answer is yes.  If you are running out for a latte or a Frappuccino or even to catch a quick smoke, New York workers’ compensation will cover you for injuries that happen during that short break period.  It’s very rare for a break time not to be covered by workers’ compensation.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us!
