Any worker in Staten Island and throughout New York City can be injured on the job, but there are certain types of employment that carry greater natural risks of being injured or even killed. Construction is one such industry. Although it is a good job with solid pay and reliable benefits, there is always the danger of accidents. After an accident, workers' compensation is a necessity to help with medical treatment and lost wages. Legal help might be needed to maximize the benefits.
It may be a new year, but so far there are no new treatment options being offered for workers’ compensation back pain claims.
Staten Islanders receiving Social Security Disability Income for an injury or illness might not be aware that the Social Security Administration performs periodic reviews to determine whether the recipient should continue receiving benefits. Since SSDI is for those who are unable to work, the status of the illness or injury is key. Understanding this is a critical part of the benefits process.
