Quiero compartir con mis clientes que trabajan en construcción, demolición y remoción de asbesto, y con mis amigos, este excelente artículo de Gary LaBarbera, Presidente del Concilio de Oficios de Edificios y Construcción. Dicen que no tenemos un regalo más grande que nuestra salud - es importante mantener presión sobre los políticos de Nueva York para que continúen a efectuar un estado de Cero-Accidente en Nueva York.
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.
