Denied disability claim? It's not the end of the road for you

When New York readers find that they are unable to work due to a medical condition, it is both frustrating and overwhelming.

However, actually obtaining these benefits is rather complicated, and some first-time applications come back denied.

Which construction site hazards are threatening your safety?

Construction sites are places that are fraught with risks for every worker, but there are ways that New York employers can make it safer for every man and woman employed in this field.

Getting back to work after a workplace accident

A work accident can have a serious and long-term impact your life. It is not easy to recover and get back to work, but with medical care and time off work, you may be able to eventually return to work.

The definition of disability and your right to benefits

If you are seeking disability benefits, you know how complicated and frustrating it can be to attempt to collect the financial support you need.

That pain in your shoulder could be a rotator cuff injury

Do you repeat the same motion over and over and over again at work each day? Over time, has your shoulder begun to hurt, and now you can no longer take the pain? Aside from repetitive motions, did you fall on your arm or lift something heavy and you now suffer from intense pain?

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.
