How To Recover From Serious Facial Fractures After A Workplace Accident

Construction Accident at Liberty Island

Although many Americans suffer serious facial fractures due to motor vehicle accidents, a large percentage of them also develop these due to workplace falls. The improper use of ladders, poorly constructed and unstable scaffolding, and inadequate guardrails on construction platforms all contribute to highly painful and sometimes life-threatening facial fracture. While many workers can heal from less complex facial fractures after bad falls, others may have to also cope with traumatic brain injuries and neurological disorders. Depending on the precise type of facial fracture suffered – and the extent to which nearby muscles and nerves were damaged – some workers may...

Warehouses are large buildings that store "things" such as raw materials, machine or device components, and finished goods for distribution to retailers. They often become busy and even frenetic places during peak demand periods of the year. This places a lot of pressure on their workers to move products rapidly explains one of New York work accident lawyers at the F&A injury law firm. Unfortunately, some warehouse managers solve this by compromising safety as well as pushing their workers too hard and/or making them work long shifts. A warehouse full of rushed people on foot moving among racing forklifts through...

Aggravated a Pre-existing Medical Condition While on the Job? Our Workers Compensation Lawyers Can Help.

A pre-existing medical condition complicates matters when it comes to payment for a current work-related injury. Compensation will likely be reduced because of the pre-existing condition.

If so, then your employer must still cover your medical expenses and pay you for time lost from work.  If the new injury aggravated the prior condition permanently, however, then workers comp pays only the amount of the additional impairment. For that reason, using the same doctor you had for your...

Construction accident lawyer New York

Now that we know that the COVID-19 pandemic will be around for another year or two, we must make sure that all construction site employers follow the best safety guidelines. To help meet this challenge, OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has created detailed workplace recommendations.

Both employers and workers must alter many past work practices to keep everyone safe from COVID-19 and regular construction site dangers. Subjects addressed include the need to create multiple teams and shifts,...

New Technologies Can Help Truckers Decrease Fatigue and Accidents


Veterans of the trucking industry like Juan Ochoa, who currently manages a group of about 80 long-haul trucks in Kent Washington, estimate that roughly seventy percent (70%) of all trucking accidents are caused by fatigue. Ochoa also asserts that once truck drivers become too tired, they’re no longer able to respond quickly enough to road dangers. Aware of this problem, many businesses are now creating and marketing products that can help truckers remain fully aware of when they’ve become too drowsy to drive. Dr. Daniel Bongers’s Australian company SmartCap currently markets a line of industrial safety products that can help most...
