New York firm standing up for injured construction workers

Despite advances in workplace safety and construction technology, New Yorkers continue to be injured on the job. Whether a pure accident or caused by the negligence of another, a workplace accident can leave an individual not only with serious physical injuries, but also with financial losses that can leave him or her struggling to make ends meet. Although workers' compensation may be available to help cover these financial losses, sometimes these claims are denied, and often they don't cover the full extent of one's losses.

Stay safe on your motorcycle during summer months

Summer is in full swing as we cruise into July and beyond, which means that we can expect more traffic on our roadways in and around Glen Cove and Forest Hills. Of course, with greater congestion comes greater likelihood of a automobile accident, especially for motorcycle riders.

Teens contribute to more fatal accidents this time of year

Summer is here, which means that school is out and families are going on vacations. It also means that more teen drivers will be hitting the road. Although this may not seem like a big deal, it in fact is. Why? Because a recent study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that these young drivers are at a significantly increased risk of being involved in all types of crashes, including fatal car accidents. More specifically, those who are between the ages of 16 and 17 are nearly three times more likely to be involved in a deadly wreck than other motorists.

New York construction accident leaves one in critical condition

One would think that with all of the heightened awareness on workplace safety that employers would ensure that their work environments are free from hazards. Unfortunately, though, far too many employers either neglect their duties to ensure workplace safety, or they simply don't know how to sniff out all the potential issues that can arise. Although state and federal regulations aim to give guidance to these employers, sometimes they fail to adhere to them. Sometimes, too, despite all possible safety measures being taken, a workplace accident can still occur that leaves a worker with serious injuries.

How do I pursue a medical malpractice claim?

Being injured by medical neglect can leave you in a difficult position. You will probably face physical pain and suffering, but you might also face serious financial losses in the form of medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages. In order to find a sense of justice and claim compensation for your damages, you may need to consider pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit. We hope that this post will help give you guidance with regard to the steps that should be taken once you decide to pursue this route.

Workers' compensation and the Section 32 waiver

New Yorkers who have been injured in falls, scaffolding accidents, and ladder mishaps while on the job may have a hard enough time proving that they qualify for workers' compensation benefits. They're employer or their employer's insurer may try to claim that the employee was operating outside of his or her employment duties at the time the accident occurred. However, even those who do successfully claim workers' compensation benefits may have difficulty recovering all the benefits to which they are entitled.
