Man killed after suffering catastrophic work injuries

Regardless of who one works for or the type of work one is engaged in, an accident can occur without warning. At times, these work injuries can result in either disability or even death. Any New York resident could suffer a serious injury on the job that could also result in significant financial damages.

Work injuries got you down? You might qualify for compensation

Construction workers perform important jobs that are essential to growth and infrastructure maintenance in New York. While construction sites are inherently dangerous due to the nature of the job, these conditions are often exacerbated by negligent employers or third parties. Workers' compensation is a great foundation for providing necessary care and compensation for work injuries, but in some cases, victims need more.

Whether traveling to visit family, driving to and from work or simply setting off on an adventure, interstates and highways are commonly-traveled roads in New York. However, just because they are frequently used does not mean that interstates are inherently safe. Most are populated with large 18-wheelers, hauling heavy loads over long distances. Truck accidents involving these types of tractor-trailers can be devastating for victims.

Causes and signs of infant brain damage

If something goes wrong when you give birth and your baby suffers a traumatic brain injury, you may not realize it until sometime later. Because your baby cannot share his or her symptoms with you, it is especially important that you learn the signs and symptoms associated with infant brain damage if you have any reason to believe your child may have suffered it.

VA accused of hiring doctors with medical malpractice histories

For the men and women who have served in the United States military, the Department of Veterans Affairs is an incredibly valuable benefit. Many New York veterans seek necessary care and treatment from VA facilities, and expect that the medical professionals there are competent and trustworthy. Unfortunately, this may simply not be the case. A recent investigation revealed that the VA has a bad habit of hiring doctors previously accused and found responsible for medical malpractice.
