Legal aid is important in workers' compensation claims

No matter what type of job you have, if you are classified as an employee with your company, you can suffer an injury on the job. Even individuals who spend most of their workday behind a desk could slip on an icy staircase or suffer injuries from repetitive motions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome resulting from typing. These injuries and any others that are suffered while on the job can all be covered by workers' compensation benefits. If you are making a workers' compensation claim, it is important that you meet with an attorney to discuss your claim.

Injury risks for construction workers

We often talk about how construction workers face more occupational hazards than the average worker, but to those who are not familiar with the construction industry, such a claim can seem like an exaggeration. Those who are fortunate to work in the construction industry and not have seen any injuries may also be skeptical about the claim. However, this article explains many of the injuries that are common among construction workers and how those injuries may occur.

Are there injuries that workers' compensation does not cover?

We have previously mentioned how workers' compensation covers nearly all work-related injuries, including injuries that were suffered during horseplay depending on the circumstances. However, there are obviously some injuries that are not covered by workers' compensation, and there are surely many people who are curious as to what those injuries might be. Fortunately, this article can help. The article features a great deal of information regarding workers' compensation and answers many common questions.

New York laborer killed in tree-clearing accident

When we report on workplace injuries in New York, we often talk about accidents that happen to construction workers on construction sites. This is largely because construction accidents are among the most common types of workplace accidents, but we realize that construction workers are not the only ones facing risks. There are dozens of jobs that are inherently dangerous or risky, and many employees face similar risks to those of construction workers, risks such as height or use of large power tools.

Working with toxic chemicals can cause illness

We've previously mentioned that workers' compensation benefits can extend to illnesses suffered as a result of work conditions, but just how these injuries may occur might still confuse some. One extremely common way for workers to suffer an illness, especially in a city like New York, is through working with chemicals. Chemical exposure can cause myriad illnesses, and if you can prove that years of chemical exposure has caused you to suffer an illness, you may be entitled to compensation.
