Many people don't know that there is a legal connection between a workers' compensation case and a personal injury case that arise from the same accident. The law does not want the injured worker to recover 100% of his workers' compensation benefit and also 100% of his personal injury, or negligence, recovery. So an injured worker receiving workers' compensation must pay some of his personal injury proceeds back to the workers' compensation insurance company. This is true even with devastating injuries that come from scaffold accidents, or demolition or construction accidents, or elevator falls, where the disability may last a lifetime. However, there are ways to protect and maximize the benefits you need to protect yourself and your family. Today I want to tell you about the "Global" workers' comp/personal injury settlement.

Monday night, Congress voted along party lines to eliminate the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Rule, a federal rule created by the Obama administration. The regulation on the chopping block limits companies with recent safety violations to bid for federal contracts unless they agree to remedies. It was designed to protect workers from labor law violations by the contractors that employ them.
New York generates a lot of work injury situations. The most unusual make into the headlines. The ones that are most common often don't. What does make the news is how much those injuries cost in terms of meeting the workers' compensation needs of the victims.
The most common work injury in the country can have devastating effects - but it's probably not what you think.
