I was very proud to be asked to teach a class in Workers' Compensation, Personal Injury, and Social Security Disability laws at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx. This is perhaps my tenth time teaching working men and women what to do if they have accidents or injuries on the job, or if they have construction accidents, falling off scaffolds or ladders, or from roofs, or working in demolition.
Mi Paralegal principal, Elizabeth Ríos, asistido a la reciente Foro Cívico de Latinos de la Ciudad de Nueva York en nombre de nuestra oficina, The Klein Law Group. Liz informa que conoció a algunos viejos amigos, e hizo algunos nuevos. Fue un honor para nosotros ser parte de este gran programa, apadrinado por el Instituto de Murphy de la Universidad de la Ciudad de Nueva York.
A construction worker is nursing a broken ankle that will keep him off the job for some time following a serious fall in the late afternoon of Feb. 27. Construction workers here in New York understand the danger that ladder and scaffolding falls can pose to an individual's ability to perform his or her job effectively. Thankfully, workers' compensation will likely be provided to help get this individual through a difficult transition.
A man is in danger of having his arm amputated after it was crushed, according to officials reporting on the accident. The man's arm was injured by a forklift, a dangerous piece of equipment often involved in heavy equipment accidents, as many New York residents are already aware. Thankfully, his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, though the repercussions on his ability to work may be considerable.
