How do you get benefits for a disabling workplace injury?

We recently discussed a form of compensation available specifically for workers whose injuries leave them with permanently decreased ability in part of their body. After reviewing the types of workplace injuries and body parts that can qualify for a Schedule Loss of Use award, our Utica readers will likely want to know: what is the process for seeking an SLU? What all is involved, and how burdensome is it?

Disabling workplace injuries may qualify for cash benefits

The idea of compensation for workplace injuries can sometimes be a confusing thing. On the one hand, it makes sense that an injured worker should be covered for lost wages, medical expenses and other damages that are easy to put a price tag on. But what about injuries that take longer to recover from, or those from which a full recovery is not possible?

When people think about workplace accidents, they may think the danger comes from within the workplace. Depending on the occupation, the danger could come from heavy machinery, heights, electricity or hazardous substances. However, people may not realize that the danger can also come from other individuals they meet on the job. For example, the other people who workers interact with -- from co-workers to members of the public -- can be dangerous in some situations.

Representing Utica workers with repetitive stress injury claims

As we discussed last week here on our blog, repetitive stress injuries suffered on the job entitle a Utica worker to compensation just as do accidental injuries or traumatic injuries. However, backing up your claim that you suffered your injuries on the job can be more difficult. This can add unwanted stress to the treatment and recovery process.
