    Default Re: Compensation Claim with the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board

    "The employee files a claim with the Board on Form Employee Claim (C-3) by mailing the form to the appropriate Board District Office. This must be done within two years of the accident, or within two years after the employee knew or should have known, that the injury was related to employment."

    negligence is not a factor in eligibility for work comp benefits; its no fault coverage.
