Why might a workers' compensation claim be denied?

Not all of the workers' compensation claims that New York residents file are approved. In fact, many claims for workers' compensation benefits are denied because they lack specific and necessary information. When preparing to file one's paperwork to seek workers' compensation it is important that individuals know what they are doing and that they can seek support from attorneys who work in this area of the law.

CONTRATISTA INDEPENDIENTE O EMPLEADO: NO SE DEJE ENGAÑAR

No solo su lugar de trabajo puede ser peligroso-su empleador puede ser un peligro para sus derechos legales. Los trabajadores de la construcción son especialmente vulnerables a ser clasificados erróneamente por sus empleadores como contratistas independientes.

INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR OR EMPLOYEE - DON'T GET FOOLED

It's not only your workplace that might be unsafe-your employer may be a hazard to your legal rights. Construction workers are especially vulnerable to being misclassified by their employers as independent contractors.

Injured on the job? Be careful what you post on social media.

After a serious injury on the job, many workers feel bored and isolated. Social media can be a gateway to the outside world. Social media has become so pervasive that we often post without a second thought. When you're involved in a legal case, however, that can be dangerous.

As NYC construction booms, workplace safety continues to bust

AdobeStock_107123549.jpegSo far, New York has seen twice as many construction-related fatalities in 2018 than the same time frame in 2017. While four people died on construction sites in the Big Apple in 2017, this year has seen eight fatalities so far, according to the NYC Department of Buildings.

Union membership can mean safer construction sites

There is no disputing the fact that construction workers should have safe work environments. These men and women face hazards on a daily basis that most people will never encounter. And yet, they are often subjected to egregious work conditions that can lead to serious injuries or fatalities.

Your employer should help you get back to work after an injury

Getting hurt at work can mean a sudden stop to your standard daily routine. You may have been used to taking care of yourself and working full time every day. After your injury, you may not be able to return to work. Spinal injuries, broken bones, head injuries and even soft tissue injuries could keep you from safely completing the tasks involved with your job. In some cases, you may require help with daily self care as well.

Will workers' compensation cover accessible housing?

Workers in industries such as construction and engineering have a high risk of becoming severely injured while at work in the state of New York. While there are laws in place to protect workers who become permanently disabled, unfortunately, many workers do not realize the extent of the benefits to which they are entitled when their injury occurred in the workplace.

Who isn't covered by workers' compensation in New York?

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.
