Workplace exposure could cause illnesses

The most important thing to determine before filing a workers? compensation claim is to determine that your injury was suffered on the job. For many injuries, this is fairly easy to prove. If you are working on a construction site, and you fall down an elevator shaft, it is obvious that you would not have suffered this injury were it not for your job. But for employees who work around dangerous chemicals, illnesses suffered because of exposure may be difficult to prove.

Workers? comp benefits could apply to Uber and Lyft drivers

You may have heard of ride-sharing services, companies like Uber and Lyft, which have cropped up in recent years as an alternative to hailing a cab or calling a friend for transportation. You may not have ever wondered about the driver behind the steering wheel in these cars, but the terms of their employment have been raising questions recently in California. The answers to these questions could affect drivers and employees all across the country, including those in New York.

How can workers? comp benefit construction workers?

Every job comes with its share of risks and dangers, but few jobs have more inherent danger than those of construction workers. The very nature of construction work is to operate large machines and heavy tools in high places, putting workers in potentially dangerous circumstances. These dangers are arguably even more prevalent in places like New York, where it seems like every building is a skyscraper. It is for this reason that workers? compensation benefits are extremely important to construction workers.

Take full advantage of workers? compensation benefits

Depending on the type of job you have, you could be at a daily risk of injury. Even if you work in a seemingly safe environment such as an office area, you could still suffer an unexpected injury. If you are injured on the job, chances are that you can take advantage of workers? compensation benefits. You may feel that the circumstances of your injury do not qualify you for coverage, but nearly all injuries suffered while on the job qualify victims.
