Injured while collecting unemployment ..

I am collecting partial unemployment in the state of New York. While helping at the Holloween party where I work I fell and broke my ankle. Can I still receive unemployment? What do I do? I can't work at all now.

To collect unemployment insurance benefits, you must be able to work and actively seeking work. If you cannot satisfy those two requirements, you cannot collect unemployment. However, you may be able to collect a state disability insurance benefit.
