Generally, when a person suffers an injury while on the job, he or she is typically able to access workers' compensation benefits in order to get the medical and financial support needed going forward.

For example, New York residents who are injured in car accidents while they are on the clock may have the ability to pursue personal injury claims in civil court.

When New York drivers agree to give someone a ride, they have a duty to try to keep that passenger safe on the roadway. Getting behind the wheel while intoxicated is never safe and often leads to car accidents. One man was recently killed while riding with a driver accused of being drunk.
