You likely count on your ability to go to work each day. You need to be able to earn a living. So, what happens if you are injured and can't work?

3 tips to reduce your risk of an accident when biking in the road

Bicyclists are permitted to drive in the road alongside cars and other vehicles. However, if a motor vehicle collides with a bicycle, the results can be disastrous for the rider.

Falling objects can lead to fatal accidents

When can I receive lost wages benefits?

Injured New York workers who suffered their injuries while carrying out their job duties may be able to receive lost wages benefits through the state workers' compensation program if their injuries prevent them from going to work. Lost wages will not compensate you for your full amount of income; however, they are also exempt from federal income tax. As such, you may end up receiving an amount of lost wages benefits that comes close to the amount you were earning.
