It sounds like your accident will be covered under worker's compensation insurance. All employers in New York are required to have such coverage in place. Many, less reputable companies, do not but, McDonald's is a sophisticated employer and in all likelihood, the franchisee you work for has worker's compensation available.
You must act quickly to retain a worker's compensation attorney to protect your rights in this matter. There are deadlines that have to be met and complex issues that must be addressed.
