Please take the time to send Gov. Paterson a letter requesting that he sign the LaCroix bill today!  Click here.  This law will enable New York injured workers to receive their entire awards for permanent damage as a result of compensable injury as soon as they are awarded benefits by the Workers' Compensation Board.  Thil bill only applies to "scheduled" losses from severe injuries such as loss of a limb or limbs.  Currently, if an injured workers has such an injury, they may not get paid their full award at once.
