Electrical accident on the job hospitalizes Midtown hotel worker

In New York, work accidents can happen in any kind of job whether it is work that is viewed as physical and dangerous or sedentary and safe. The aftermath of these accidents is universal regardless of the kind of job it is. People who are injured after an accident on the job can be confronted with lost time at work, medical expenses and long-term problems as a result. Even jobs not thought to be significantly risky can have a safety hazard, an unsafe working environment or a mistake on the part of another worker or the workplace that causes the injuries. To ensure that the worker is compensated for all that was lost, a lawsuit is often necessary.

What if my workers' compensation claim is disputed?

For New York State residents who are injured on the job or suffer a condition because of their work and it prevents them from working, workers' compensation benefits can be a lifeline. They can cover for lost wages, medical expenses and more. However, there are times when there is a disagreement regarding the claim and it will be disputed. For those who file a workers' compensation claim and face a situation in which the insurer disputes it, it is critical to have legal assistance from an attorney who specializes in workers' compensation claims.

What can I do if there are toxic chemicals at my worksite?

Dangerous chemicals at a worksite can be hazardous to the health and welfare of the workers who must do their jobs in the chemicals' presence. In New York and throughout the rest of the country workers have rights when it comes to dealing with and avoiding chemicals that may do them harm. This post will briefly discuss a worker's options for working with toxic chemicals, but it does not provide legal advice or guidance on the topic.

Surprising workplace injuries

Any workplace has its hazards whether you are building a skyscraper or working in an office on the 66th floor of one. It is possible to get hurt anywhere, but some injuries are just surprising.
