What is workers’ compensation?
Workers’ compensation is available to any employee who was injured while in the course of performing work-related duties. Even if the injury was caused by your own negligence, you are still able to recover workers’ comp. The workers’ compensation system caps your recovery and prevents you from pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against your employer.
We will help you file for initial application for benefits or if you are seeking to appeal a rejected claim. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, weekly wage replacement, a permanent injury settlement, vocational rehabilitation, loss of earning capacity (incentive for employer to take you back), or death benefits for a loved one.
Our workers’ comp attorneys are experienced in work injury claims involving:
- Serious injury: back injury, neck injury, head injury, traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Permanent disability: paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia
- Repetitive stress injuries: shoulder injuries, rotator cuff injury, carpal tunnel syndrome
- Occupational disease: chemical exposure
- Maximizing your compensation for a work-related injury
If you have been injured while at work or in performing work duties (as a delivery driver or on a construction site) please contact us Link to Contact Us as soon as possible to protect your rights.
