Is your employer doing enough to prevent "struck-by" injuries?

Construction sites are full of hazards. In order to keep you as safe as possible, you employer must provide you with the appropriate safety equipment and training. One area where a recently published report says employers are lacking is in preventing "struck-by" accidents.

SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY AND WHAT IT MEANS TO BE DISABLED

You may have been injured in an accident and unable to work, or you may have a disease or other medical condition--but to win Social Security Disability benefits you must prove to the Social Security Administration that you are unable to engage in "substantial activity," for at least twelve consecutive months.

Surgical errors: When a doctor violates patient trust

The trust you place in your doctor is like no other. Sometimes spouses do not even receive the same level of trust people give to their medical providers. One of the best examples of that trust is during a surgical procedure. If you recently underwent an operation, you may remember the flashing feeling of apprehension at the thought of allowing a near stranger to cut you open while you lay unconscious on a table.

How do I know if I am eligible for workers' compensation?

New York workers who suffer an injury at work because of an accident, or those who suffer illnesses because of their jobs, may have a rightful claim to financial compensation. You may believe that your employer's workers' compensation insurance would cover you in the event of an injury, but that may not necessarily be the case.

SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFIT CHANGES

If you are on Social Security Disability benefits or are about to file for Social Security Disability benefits because you are disabled, and too disabled for all but a minimum of gainful employment, you need to know that the Social Security Administration will be making changes for the coming year.

HOW TO NOTIFY YOUR EMPLOYER OF AN ACCIDENT

Many working men and women in New York believe that Workers' Compensation is an automatic benefit. They become understandably frustrated when that proves not to be true, and they are forced to wait for a weekly benefit check and for proper medical treatment.

WORKERS' COMP & INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS

Many working men and women, particularly those in construction and demolition, and who work with scaffolds--and many employers, contractors and subcontractors, are often confused about the difference between an employee and an independent contractor.
