Hockey player’s mystery injury revealed to be herniated disc

Ilya Kovalchuk, the New Jersey Devils forward, has revealed that the mystery injury which caused him to miss a game is actually a herniated disc in his back.

The professional hockey player had been playing through the pain, but it recently became too severe. He was unable to play in the second game of the playoffs for his team.

Kovalchuk made the decision himself to return to the ice, and he put his name on the roster for Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers. He told his coach that he felt fine and that he was ready to begin contributing to his team again. At this time his sole focus is the playoffs, and he will determine if he needs surgery for the herniated disc after the season has ended.

Workplace accidents can result in herniated discs quite frequently. These injuries can cause severe discomfort and may even lead to a person being unfit to return to work. If you have suffered a herniated disc as the result of a workplace injury, please contact the Detroit workers’ compensation lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., by calling 866-644-6587 today. pandora brazalete pandora brazalete pandora brazalete


Workplace accident kills 2 in Pennsylvania

Two firefighters were killed in a workplace accident in the early morning hours on Monday. The firefighters were responding to a call about a rampant fire in an abandoned warehouse in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

They tried to contain the fire in the six-story building, but it quickly spread to surrounding areas. Five of the firefighters chose to enter a close building in order to figure out the cause of the extended fire. They shortly became trapped in the furniture store after the expanding fire caused one of the building’s walls to collapse.

As a result of the accident, a 25-year-old firefighter and a 60-year-old veteran firefighter lost their lives. One man was able to escape before he sustained injuries, and the other two men received life-threatening injuries. Investigators are currently investigating the cause of the deadly flames.

Workers’ comp claimant denied extension because of Facebook pics

A man who was injured while working for an appliance retailer was recently denied an extension of benefits because of some pictures of himself that were posted online.  The worker had a hernia about 3 years ago because a refrigerator fell on top of him at work.  After the accident, he was awarded workers’ compensation and compensation for medical bills stemming from the work-related injury.

The workers’ compensation claimant sought an extension to his benefits in an Arkansas district court, arguing that his injury still made him suffer “excruciating pain,” but evidence that his employer presented led the court to deny an extension.  Photos of the injured worker  partying that were posted on MySpace and Facebook were used by the defendants to prove that the claimant was no longer injured.

Unhappy with the court’s decision, the claimant appealed his case to an appeals court in Arkansas.  The appellate court upheld the trial court’s hearing, accepting the pictures of the worker partying as sufficient proof that his hernia was no longer a problem.

If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, an experienced attorney can help you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.  Contact the Detroit workers’ compensation attorneys of Ravid & Associates, P.C. by calling 866-644-6587 today. air max mujer air max mujer air max mujer

Michigan cracks down on misclassified workers

The Governor of Michigan has created a task force to develop strategies that will help strengthen the rules against misclassified workers.

When corporations misclassify workers as independent contractors it deprives them of basic legal protection and costs taxpayers more money. A misclassification of a worker also deprives the worker of workers’ compensation benefits, so if the workers suffers an injury he or she will not be covered by the insurance policy that most business carry.
