We fight for those hurt in New York workplace accidents

Far too many New Yorkers are living paycheck-to-paycheck. Thus, when unexpected expenses arise, these individuals may have trouble making ends meet. The same holds true for those who have been injured on the job and are subsequently unable to work. If you are in this situation, you're likely facing unexpected medical expenses and lost wages, which can really throw your finances into a tailspin. While it's true that workers' compensation benefits may be available to you, they are not guaranteed.

What benefits does workers' compensation provide?

Going to work every day shouldn't be a scary experience, and for most New Yorkers it isn't. However, just because individuals aren't afraid to go to work doesn't mean that they don't confront potentially dangerous situations on a daily basis. In fact, most workers face risks that could leave them with a workplace injury. Whether from repetitive stress, a high fall, or dangerous machinery, an individual can be left with severe physical injuries that can be painful and costly.

How does alcohol affect driving abilities?

The last several decades have seen an enormous push to curtail drunk driving. Public safety initiatives have sought to raise awareness of the dangers of driving while intoxicated, and local laws have promised to increase punishments for those caught driving under the influence of alcohol. Sadly, despite these efforts, drunk driving remains a very real problem for New Yorkers and others across the nation. Intoxicated drivers can put unsuspecting motorists at risk of serious harm and death, as they typically don't understand, or don't care about, how alcohol affects their driving abilities.

Going to work shouldn't put you on edge with regard to your safety, which is why local, state, and federal regulations are in place to ensure workplace safety. Yet, far too often, workplace accidents leave individuals with serious injuries. These injured workers may struggle to get back on their feet, especially when their injuries require extensive medical care and rehabilitation. Additionally, when their injuries leave them unable to work, these individuals may lose out on the wages upon which they rely.
