If you're a full-time worker in the state of New York, chances are that you benefit from workers' compensation coverage. As such, if you suffer a job-related injury, you can receive money to pay for your medical care, wage-replacement benefits, job training, temporary and permanent disability benefits and more depending on the details and extent of your work-related injuries.

Pleasure boats may be a source of leisure and excitement for many, but we must not forget that they are still dangerous.

Employers have a duty to keep their employees safe whether it is through ensuring that the proper equipment is provided and required when handling dangerous materials or providing proper guard rails. The only concern the employee should have is getting the job done correctly and on time, not wondering if they will make it through the day without serious injury.
