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!
