Injured In A Workers’ Compensation Case? We’re Here For You
There is a lot more at stake than you may realize when you are injured at work and can no longer do your job. That weekly paycheck that helps pay the bills and supports your family might be more far-reaching than never going back to your last job. Lost workdays mean lost income and often medical bills. More tragically, a workplace injury may mean never going to work again, never collecting another paycheck, or being relegated to a future of lower-paying or part-time jobs.
The term ”occupational injury” seems innocuous enough, but they are too often devastating, and not just for injured workers, but for entire families. If you sustained medically consulted injuries. or those serious enough to seek a physician’s care and treatment, you are not alone. The National Safety Council reports that nearly 13,000 American workers are injured on the job every day. Most of these accidents are preventable and are not the fault of the worker.
That’s why you need and deserve a lawyer who understands that when you can’t provide for yourself and your family due to a workplace injury, you are entitled to full and fair compensation through workers’ compensation. That means both wage replacement and medical benefits.

Your Rights Under The Law When Injured At Work
Employers are obligated under the law “to take reasonable care to assure that their workplaces are safe.” Nevertheless, you may collect workers’ compensation regardless of whether negligence caused your accident. Workers compensation claims, aside from compensation for lost income and costs of medical care, are also designed to pay for rehabilitation and transportation to and from medical appointments.
Because there are many requirements for filing and maintaining a valid workers’ compensation claim, you’ll need professional assistance such as:
- Filing your claim within the allowed time
- Proving that your injuries still prevent you from working with documentation that you have been seeing your doctor regularly
We are here to help you along every step of the process, no matter how demanding, and that includes determining whether we file a third-party personal injury claim for workplace accidents.
