CRPS is one of the least understood catastrophic injuries

Accident victims in New York can suffer any of an endless list of injuries, some of which could be life altering. These are typically called catastrophic injuries, and they include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). The latter is an injury type that is not well understood by doctors or victims, nor do they get much sympathy from others because, as the name indicates, it involves pain that can be felt but not seen.

Slips, trips and falls -- common construction workers' accidents

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, a significant percentage of fatalities on construction sites in New York and other states follow slips and trips that lead to falls. The same applies to the number of disabling injuries that are caused by these construction workers' accidents. Falls from heights are not the only cause of fatal or debilitating injuries as same level slips and trips -- which are more prevalent in the winter -- can also cause catastrophic injuries.

Can employees prevent construction workers' accidents?

Every member of the workforce in New York faces injury risks regardless of their occupations. Much has been said about the number of construction workers' accidents that occur in this state, and safety authorities are continuously working on setting standards that will prevent injuries and deaths. However, construction workers can play an essential part in their own safety by taking some precautions.

Car accidents change lives of injured Good Samaritans

Two New York men are recuperating in the Erie County Hospital after they were both struck by a car several weeks ago. They were members of a crew working on the Kingston Expressway when they unexpectedly became involved in the aftermath of two car accidents. One of the crashes put them both in the hospital.

Compliance with regulations could prevent catastrophic injuries

Thousands of workers in New York and across the country suffer occupational injuries every day. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, most of the incidents are preventable. Sadly many workers suffer catastrophic injuries like amputations due to noncompliance by employers with safety regulations. If every employer would install and implement a lockout/tagout program, workers will not lose fingers, toes, hands, feet and limbs in workplace accidents.
