Suit against insurance company to be transferred to federal court

Employers often offer life and accidental death insurance as a benefit to their employees.

In other cases, a driver may have questions about how they can seek compensation if they are a victim of another driver's negligence.

Why paying attention to job-classification codes is so important

Most workers know that if they suffer an injury during the course of doing their job, then they may seek workers' compensation benefits. Beyond that, most workers do not know or care very little about the behind-the-scenes work that makes these benefits possible. But if you're a business owner here in New York and are among one of our more frequent readers, then you know exactly how complex workers' compensation insurance can get.

Don't let policy holders tell you you're negotiating in bad faith

Despite what may be said on the Internet about insurance companies, a majority of adjusters care about getting policy holders fair payments from their claims.
