Office workers can suffer job-related injuries too

When it comes to workers' compensation, construction workers might seem like the most likely to need such benefits. However, it is important to remember that you do not have to be a construction worker in order to recover workers' compensation. Any injury that is suffered on the job or as a result of job-related duties could qualify you for workers' compensation benefits, even if you work in a seemingly safe office environment.

Construction worker fatality leads to conflicting accusations

It is no secret that construction workers face some of the most dangerous occupational hazards of any profession, and unfortunately, we in New York were reminded of this just a few months ago when a worker at a New York construction site was fatally wounded. According to reports, a construction worker was killed when a collapsed wall fell upon him. Even worse, both the supervisor and employing company appear to have known about the dangers of the project, even as they sent the worker into the area.

Legal assistance can help you with your workers' comp claim

If you are familiar with workers' compensation, you may be aware that workers' compensation is insurance that is paid for by your employer. Similar to car insurance, when something goes wrong, you can be reasonably certain that the insurance company will do what it can to help you. In fact, many workers' compensation claims are relatively easily handled, allowing injured workers to recover compensation. So why do you need legal aid?

What if I can't go back to work after an injury?

Many people are aware of the positive benefits made available by workers' compensation, specifically the financial assistance that insurance provides in the event of an on the job injury. What you may not know is that in some cases, you are entitled to more than just monetary compensation, which can be extremely important if you find yourself unable to return to work.
