Compensation for New York construction site accidents

When an individual is hurt on the job, he or she is generally entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, a personal injury settlement or both kinds of compensation. Only an experienced attorney can advise workers on which kinds of compensation may be available in their specific situations. However, New York law does provide numerous protections for workers who suffer construction accident injuries in both workers’ compensation and personal injury contexts.

New York company cited for violations after workplace fatality

If you drive northwest of Newburgh for about two and a half hours, you'll come to the town of Vestal. The pace is a little slower than it is here, but the quiet was broken this past March when tragedy struck at a pipe and plastics manufacturing plant there.

Rural workers' compensation hearing sites closing in New York

For many years, workers' compensation hearing sites have been scattered throughout New York. Some are concentrated around large cities where many people reside, but others are located in small towns so those who live in rural areas have an easier way to contest denied claims. As the state legislature looks to cut costs, however, some of these rural facilities are getting the boot.

How will the government shutdown affect workers' compensation?

When our politicians in the nation's capital could not iron out a budget by Sept. 30, the federal government "shut down" on Oct. 1. In practice, this is a partial shutdown, meaning that many federal agencies needed to close their doors while others needed to scale back operations to maintain only operations deemed essential.
