In New York you can not collect both at the same time. If you can prove, which would be hard without physical evidence, that you were fired due to the injury you can sue the employer. But if you are collecting comp you can file a claim for unemployment but I would wait until the comp is up.

Can you collect workmens compensation and unemployment at the same time?

Workman Comp and UnemploymentNot in the State of Michigan. Not sure about other states, but I highly doubt you can collect both at the same time anywhere. Addendum:Think about it.... No state in the Union (at least for now) would even entertain a notion of paying unemployment to someone collecting workman's comp insurance. To collect unemployment you must be able to work and looking for work. If you're able to work, you would no longer be covered under Workman's Comp.

If your employer does not carry Workmens Comp can you get your own individual policy?

In most states the employer MUST carry Workmens Comp. It's the law. Check with your local wage and hour or whatever it's called in your state. Workmens Comp protects employees while on the job and pays for the medical costs when an accident occurs while at work. On the other hand, if you're talking about health insurance, employers are not required to carry medical policies for employees but many employers do because it is a good way to keep valuable employees from seeking other employment.
