Third-party liability for a construction site accident (Part 1)

In the wake of a story about a New York construction worker who died in a recent collapse, we'll be taking a look at third party liability for injuries on construction sites. Before we do, however, we need to emphasize two points.

New York construction worker dies in collapsing dirt accident

Workers' compensation for food preparation and service workers

Our Utica readers who've been following our blog over the past few weeks are likely beginning to understand some of the hazards faced by restaurant workers, especially those in the fast food industry. We'll continue our discussion on this subject, but wanted to pause for a moment to encourage injured employees to understand their legal rights -- and exercise them if necessary.

Burns common among restaurant workers' injuries

When Utica residents think of health and safety in the context of a restaurant, they probably think about the safety of the food patrons are eating; whether it's properly cooked, whether it was handled by clean hands or prepared in a sanitary, hygienic kitchen.

We'll look this week at workers' injuries in restaurants, as a follow-up to our last post which discussed burns and other injuries suffered by workers at McDonald's chains.
