When a worker in New York is hired, his or her benefits are explained. In most cases, the topic of worker's compensation is discussed and explained. While most employees do not think they will ever have to use these benefits, the reality to that workplace accidents do occur. This can leave an injured worker not only dealing with the pain and suffering associated with the injury but also the financial harms caused by it.
A workplace injury does not always look like a fall injury, a broken bone or head or back trauma. A worker could suffer repetitive stress injuries, hearing loss, carpal tunnel, occupational injuries or even lead poisoning. Depending on the work environment, a worker could be exposed to a wide range of potential risks and dangers. Thus, when an incident occurs in the workplace, it is important to understand what can be done.
