Can an employer retaliate after a workers’ compensation claim?

If you are injured on the job and unable to return to work, you may realize that filing a workers' compensation claim is the best step you can take. By doing this, you are in position to receive regular payments until you can return to your job.

This is easier said than done, as your employer may argue that you should not receive workers' compensation benefits. Along with this, some employers scare injured workers into believing that they will lose their job if they proceed.

When tired drivers cause car accidents

It can be difficult to know what to do after a car accident, especially if you are unsure of why the accident happened in the first place. Knowing what caused your accident is the first step in determining if you have grounds to move forward with a civil claim. If you suffered because of the negligent or reckless actions of another person, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses and emotional pain and suffering.

One of the most common, yet often overlooked, reasons for a car accident is fatigue. Tired drivers are dangerous drivers, and like a distracted driver, can cause significant harm to innocent motorists on New York roads and highways.

Why was my workers' compensation claim denied?

If you were hurt while at work, you know how frustrating it can be to navigate the workers' compensation claims system. Although you may have a rightful claim to benefits, it can be remarkably complex for a claimant to actually secure the benefits he or she deserves. Often, first-time claims come back denied.

When dealing with a denied claim, you may be wondering why it happened and what you should do next. Fortunately, a denied claim is not the end of the road, but you have the right and the option to appeal. Before you take the next steps, you would be wise to reach out to an attorney experienced in protecting the rights and interests of New York workers.

These ladder mistakes can lead to a serious injury

Any type of ladder mistake is one that can cause serious injury or even death. This is why it's so important to know exactly what you are doing if you will be using a ladder for any task.

Many people use ladders every day at their place of employment. For instance, this tool is extremely common on construction sites and in warehouses.


Muchas personas no saben que hay una conexión legal entre un caso de compensación de trabajadores y una demanda de lesiones personales que surgen del mismo accidente. La ley no quiere que el trabajador lesionado recupere el 100% de su beneficio de compensación de los trabajadores y también el 100% del dinero de la demando de lesión personal, o la negligencia. Un trabajador lesionado recibe los beneficios de compensación de trabajadores y, al final de la demanda de lesiones personales, debe pagar parte de eso beneficios de nuevo a la compañía de seguros de compensación de trabajadores. Esto aplica a varios casos, incluyendo lesiones devastadoras que provienen de accidentes de andamio, o accidentes de demolición o construcción, o caídas de ascensor, donde la discapacidad puede durar toda la vida. Sin embargo, hay formas de proteger y maximizar los beneficios que necesita para protegerse a sí mismo y a su familia. Hoy quiero contarles sobre el acuerdo de compensación de los trabajadores / trabajadores personales "global".


Cada propietario de una pequeña empresa en Nueva York sabe lo difícil que es permanecer vivo en una de las ciudades más competitivas del país. Lo último que necesita es una multa ridícula de la junta de compensación de trabajadores encima.


Every small business owner in New York knows how challenging it is to stay alive in one of the country's most competitive cities. The last thing you need is an over-the-top workers' compensation penalty.


Many people don't know that there is a legal connection between a workers' compensation case and a personal injury case that arise from the same accident. The law does not want the injured worker to recover 100% of his workers' compensation benefit and also 100% of his personal injury, or negligence, recovery. So an injured worker receiving workers' compensation must pay some of his personal injury proceeds back to the workers' compensation insurance company. This is true even with devastating injuries that come from scaffold accidents, or demolition or construction accidents, or elevator falls, where the disability may last a lifetime. However, there are ways to protect and maximize the benefits you need to protect yourself and your family. Today I want to tell you about the "Global" workers' comp/personal injury settlement.

A tractor trailer accident can occur for many reasons

Do you often find yourself driving in close proximity to tractor trailers? Do you worry that you could one day be involved in an accident with such a large vehicle?

Even though you do your part in remaining safe, this isn't always true of tractor trailer drivers and their employers.

Fibromyalgia: a hidden disease with very real consequences

Fibromyalgia is a very real disease that many people dismiss because it is unseen. Largely misunderstood, this type of disease can leave a victim in serious pain and dealing with consequences that affect every area of life. Many people with this type of illness are unable to work and lead normal, productive lives because of the pain.

If you are not able to hold gainful employment or work enough hours to earn a full-time income, you could have grounds for a disability benefits claim. Any individual who has a medical condition that meets certain criteria may be eligible, but the claims process is both complex and confusing for the inexperienced New York claimant. Fortunately, you do not have to navigate it on your own.
