Having prosecuted thousands of claims for injured workers over the years, we know that how your case is handled early on can make a great deal of difference in the final result. That’s why we urge you to contact us as soon as possible if you or someone you love is injured on the job.
Injuries in the workplace now form one of the most significant causes of human disability in the American culture. Despite this, the psychology of the working individual is geared toward production rather than protection or safety – a circumstance that often leads to great human tragedy. Workers’ Compensation is a law that provides that you may be entitled to medical and income benefits – at the expense of your employer – if you are injured on the job. It may also entitle your dependents to benefits if you die as a result of a job-related injury.
However, anyone who has been injured on the job, particularly if the injury is permanent, knows the system does not work as well as it should to help the injured worker. Too many aspects of the law of Workers' Compensation are stacked against you. Your life may never again be the same. Your income is cut dramatically. Often, you are in pain – sometimes severe pain. You cannot do certain things that need to get done and this often places a great burden on family and friends – a burden which can sometimes destroy these relationships. We can help lessen your burden by ensuring that you get the settlement you rightly deserve so you can continue providing for yourself and your family. If you suspect you have a legal claim you can contact us online using this form – or just call us anytime at 1-800-960-5551.
