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.

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.

Fibromyalgia: a hidden disease with very real consequences

Fibromyalgia is a very real disease that many people dismiss because it is unseen.

You may be able to build a strong case after construction injury

As someone who works in the construction industry, you may enjoy your ability to see the fruit of your labor as your work takes form. Many individuals rely on construction workers to complete projects, and a job well done can often lead to repeat business and a growing career. However, this enjoyable and meaningful job can also put you in harm's way on a regular basis.

I can't work due to diabetes. Am I eligible for disability?

Diabetes is a diagnosis that can change your life in many ways. In addition to the serious health care concerns you now have, you may also find that you are unable to do some of the activities that you used to enjoy. In some serious cases, people with this disease may be unable to work due to serious medical complications.

What should your employer do if you are injured at work?

Suffering an injury at work is more than an inconvenience. It can seriously impact your financial well-being and your ability to work in the future. Fully recovering from the damage could be crucial to your career, but you may not know where to begin with a potential workers' compensation claim. 

Watch out for these workplace injury risks!

If you're one of many New York residents making a living in a dangerous job industry (construction, fishing, farming, community rescue work, etc.) you're likely already aware of many everyday safety hazards associated with such work. However, some serious workplace accidents occur in otherwise calm and uneventful atmospheres, such as clerical offices, libraries or small-town grocery stores. Regardless what type of work you do, most work environments share certain common injury risks of which you'll want to be aware if you hope to lower your personal risk.

Are you eligible for workers' compensation benefits?

New York construction workers risk injury every day they go to work. Because of the nature of this work, the injuries you could suffer may keep you from working for a significant amount of time and the medical bills could quickly grow into a substantial amount. If you do suffer an injury, you're supposed to obtain benefits to help with medical expenses, lost wages and other needs while you recover.
