What is the labor market attachment with workers' compensation?

When a New Yorker suffers workplace injuries and is approved for workers' compensation benefits, it will cover their medical expenses, lost wages and help them as they seek to improve sufficiently to get back to work. However, since injuries and their severity can vary in many ways, so too does the amount of time the worker is expected to be out. Along with that, the workers' compensation benefits can be limited in the amount of time for which they can be received.

Workplace accident claims life of TV production assistant

New York is often used as a background in the entertainment industry. This means there will be filming of television programs and feature films. Many of these are prominent with well-known stars who are on location. Many behind-the-scenes workers are needed for these productions. Some of these workers are put in harm's way due to the requirements of the job. They can be working in the early morning hours, use heavy equipment, and take part in risky activities. This can lead to workplace accidents that result in injuries and death. After there has been this type of work accident, those who were impacted must remember their right to seek workers' compensation and for a family to receive death benefits.
