Gun range workers risk toxic exposure

We frequently write about the dangers that workers in high-risk industries face every day on the job. It is important to discuss these dangers and ways to mitigate them. However, it is also important to discuss little-known dangers that workers may be facing on a regular basis even if they do not work in high-risk industries such as commercial trucking, construction and commercial fishing.

What does workers' compensation cover after a workplace accident?

If you suspect that an injury or illness is work-related, you should immediately alert your employer and consider filing a claim for workers' compensation benefits. It's an important piece of advice that many people here in New York have heard at some point in their life.

UPDATE: Protecting medical workers during the Ebola scare

The word Ebola seems to be center-stage in a number of recent news reports. In fact, our previous post discussed worker-safety in the medical field in relation to the "Ebola scare." Since that post was published, the word scare turned into reality for two nurses who treated the first man diagnosed with the virus in the United States. 

Protecting medical workers during the Ebola scare

Over the past several weeks, the media, public health officials and lawmakers have questioned whether or not the American public should be concerned about a widespread Ebola outbreak within the United States. The general consensus seems to be that Americans have little reason to fear such a turn of events. However, the diagnosis of a nurse in Spain recently marked the first case diagnosed outside of Africa. And the death of a patient treated inside the U.S. has many individuals understandably on edge.

Post-injury, should you file a lawsuit or seek workers' comp?

If you have been injured while at work, you may be wondering what your legal options are. If your employer’s negligence contributed to your injury, you may be tempted to sue. However, you may be even more concerned about receiving your workers’ compensation benefits. The question of whether to file a lawsuit, pursue workers’ compensation benefits or both is a personal one. But thankfully, it is also a question that an experienced attorney can help you navigate.
