At least 15 male breast cancer cases attributed to Ground Zero

On September 11, 2001, New York's skyline and identity changed forever. More than 15 years later, many New Yorkers are still experiencing aftershocks of 9/11, often in unexpected ways. Unusual and devastating health conditions continue to affect people who were near the nightmare on 9/11.

The serious nature of lacerations in the workplace

A laceration is a cut, but it's much more than a simple, small injury that can heal on its own. Many lacerations are deep enough to require stitches and potentially surgery to close the wound. Depending on how it was caused, a laceration may have a high risk of infection, which makes it even more complicated.

Injured workers have the right to reasonable work accommodations

No one shows up to work hoping to suffer a serious injury, but workers still get hurt every day in New York and across the country. Sometimes, those injuries are relatively minor and only require a day or two for recovery. Other times, an injury can result in temporary or permanently disability. You may no longer be able to stand for long times, lift much weight or perform other tasks that are critical to your job function.

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.

CONSTRUCTION WORKER TRAINING BILL FOR SAFETY

I am sharing this article which is of importance to all New Yorkers, but especially to my clients and friends who are construction workers, and who work with scaffolds, and doing asbestos removal, and doing demolition. As the article states, workplace accidents keep rising. That is terrible and it must be stopped! New York's business owners, politicians, and community leaders must get together to make New York a Zero Workplace Accident state!
