Workers investigating gas leak suffer burns in workplace accident

Keeping New York State running effectively and efficiently requires workers performing maintenance, repairs and construction. While these workers are generally competent and do their jobs safely, there remains an inherent danger in any task they are required to do. This is especially true when working with electrical and explosive materials. Those who are in an accident in these circumstances can face burns and other types of on-the-job injury. With the medical expenses and long-term damage that can result, workers' compensation and a legal filing are often the only available ways to cover what they lost.

Tractor trailer rollovers and workers' compensation

Most understand that when you get an injury at work you are eligible for workers' compensation benefits. People are less sure of that when it comes to injuries that happen when working from home or traveling for work. This begs the question: are you eligible for workers' compensation if you get an injury while working outside your workplace?

What are disability classifications for workers' compensation?

Suffering workplace injuries in New York can cause concern for the worker and his or her family. The missed time on the job, lost wages, medical costs and uncertain future will inevitably lead to the worker seeking workers' compensation to provide for them as they recover. If they are unable to recover, workers' compensation benefits can help with that too.
