For most parents in New York, a cancer diagnosis for their young child is one of their worst nightmares. This experience may be especially difficult in situations where a delay in diagnosis significantly reduces the child's overall quality of life. Unfortunately, a recent medical malpractice lawsuit claims that such a situation has left a young girl in a wheelchair for the rest of her life.
New York employees working at constructions sites may face many risks while on the job. Construction accidents have even been known to happen in unpredictable ways. When severe injuries or fatalities occur, workers (or their families, in the case of fatalities) may consider filing workers' compensation claims to help deal with the aftermath. A worker in another state was recently killed after being hit by a car.
Collisions between vehicles can occur in an instant. Car accidents can be particularly devastating when multiple vehicles are involved. These types of crashes may even lead to fatalities. A faculty member of a New York university was recently killed in a serious crash that involved several cars.
The personal safety risks involved in construction work are apparent to most employees. Even with the numerous precautions taken to avoid these risks, construction accidents still happen frequently in New York and around the country. Three workers in another state were recently injured in an accident involving construction equipment.
