Workers' compensation can help provide for surviving family

Working in the construction industry is not without its risks. That is one reason safety equipment is mandated when working in a construction zone and why strict safety rules are in place at construction zones. Regardless of precautions taken, accidents can still happen in New York. A recent accident took the life of a construction worker in Queens. Workers' compensation exists to help workers and their families in case of accidents.

Workers' compensation changing for farmers in New York

Agriculture plays a significant role in the economy of the state of New York. Grapes and apples are both significant crops in the state and a large workforce is required to maintain and, in particular, to harvest the fruit. Long hours are needed to bring in the crops and prepare them for market. Until recently, farmworkers were not covered under workers' compensation law.

Workers' compensation and the scaffolding law

Construction work can be dangerous. Working on scaffolding at high elevations can increase that danger, particularly in a city like New York with its abundance of tall buildings and heavy pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic. Workers' compensation is available in the event of an on-the-job accident and there is a law in place that is intended to help protect New York construction workers, not just in the city but also throughout the state.
