Workers' compensation may be needed for injured Amazon employees

Staten Islanders and workers across New York who are employed in manual labor can face a variety of dangers as they go about their duties. Since many jobs require people to be active, lift heavy objects, operate machinery and be aware of their co-workers and surroundings, these risks are inherent. When there is an accident, workers' compensation benefits will be essential to making ends meet and getting the necessary medical treatment.

Getting workers' compensation after suffering hearing loss

For New Yorkers who have suffered hearing loss because of the work they do, it is important to understand the steps necessary to receive workers' compensation benefits. Since hearing loss can cause a person to be unable to do the same job they did before, these benefits can be crucial to making ends meet and getting the medical treatment they need. For these cases, it is wise to have legal assistance.

Federal Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act coverage

For New Yorkers who work on or near the water, they may have concerns about whether they will receive compensation if they are injured on the job. This was a wide-ranging problem before the Federal Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act came into effect. Many workers might not be aware of how this law protects them. Understanding what the law says and who is covered by it is imperative when seeking benefits. It can also help to have legal advice immediately after the injury has occurred.
