New York law obligates employers to provide worker's compensation benefits for their employees. If your employer had that coverage in place, you cannot bring a personal injury lawsuit against it. However, if your employer failed to provide such coverage you may be able to bring a negligence lawsuit against your employer. In most cases, a rear end collision is automatically the fault of the following driver. However, if it was a minor collision and you did not suffer what the law considers to be a "serious injury" New York personal injury law limits your right to recovery would be limited to your "no fault" benefits, i.e. medical bills and lost wages up to fifty thousand dollars.
