Were your Social Security Disability Insurance benefits denied?

Living without financial security compromises a person's well-being and standard of living. Social Security Disability Insurance benefits can help build that sense of security for people who are not able to work. Unfortunately, people who qualify for SSDI benefits are frequently denied the benefits they need. Understanding why a claim was denied can be helpful for filing an appeal.

Speed is often the deadly factor in an accident

For some drivers, the ever-increasing speed limits on highways in New York and across the country are never fast enough. While you may understand a driver speeding because of an emergency or even excuse someone who is late for an important appointment, the fact is that many drivers go faster than the posted limit simply because they enjoy going fast or because they do not think the rules apply to them.

Where to begin when filing a workers' compensation claim

The aftermath of a work accident can be overwhelming and confusing. You may not be sure where to begin, and you might not know what you can do to start putting the pieces of your life back together again. One important step for your recovery is to file a workers' compensation claim, but you may not know where to start with this process. 

Workers' compensation and disability benefits: can you get both?

When you are unable to work, you know that you may have a likely claim to disability benefits through the Social Security Administration. However, what if your current physical condition is the result of an accident that occurred in your workplace? Should you decide to pursue workers' compensation benefits instead? It's important to get the right type of benefits available to you, as well as maximize these benefits.

When is OSHA willing to negotiate fines for safety violations?

When you go to work, you have the right to a reasonable expectation of safety. This means that New York employers should strive to implement safety standards and adhere to regulations set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. When workplace accidents happen, OSHA may review the situation and fine the business for lapses in safety practices. 

Potential laws would expand treatment under workers' compensation

New York workers who were injured on the job will have many concerns as they seek treatment and try to recover. Lost wages, medical expenses and long-term problems are often worrisome. Workers' compensation is designed to provide these injured workers with a variety of benefits to let them concentrate on returning to full health. If they cannot recover fully or are unable to do the same job they did before, there are benefits for that as well.

Common types of injuries and your risk in your workplace

When you head to work in the morning, you are probably not thinking about ways that you could end up hurt. After all, you may not even have a job that a person would consider risky. In reality, New York workers of all types face certain risks in the workplace, and it's always smart to know what to do in case you do get hurt.

The benefits you may be able to obtain through workers' comp

You know that workers' compensation benefits exist to provide injured workers with a way to claim support after a work-related accident. You may even know that these benefits include medical care, but you may not realize there are often more benefits available as well. Every New York worker will find it helpful to learn more about how to maximize his or her benefits after a divorce.

Social Security Disability benefits for mental health issues

It is not uncommon for New York residents to only think of physical ailments when they consider what it is to have a disability. A paralyzed body or a terminal illness may be easily identifiable as disabling because others can readily see the challenges that the suffering individual faces. There are, though, many disabilities that are invisible to the naked eye, but may affect victims as pervasively as apparent ones.
