Injuries at the workplace can happen to anyone, even the secretary who spends hours in front of a computer and develops carpal tunnel syndrome. Other work-related injuries include slip & falls or severe back injuries from lifting heavy objects. A serious workplace injury can impair your ability to work and cause bills to pile up.
But here’s the good news: as long as the injury occurred at work or was related to your job, you may have a valid workers’ compensation claim, a social security disability claim, and maybe even a personal injury claim.
In the event of a workplace injury, our full-service approach allows us to explore ALL your legal options and remedies.
Workers’ compensation insurance allows injured workers or their families to collect benefits such as lost wages, medical expenses and compensation for a permanent injury or death. There is no need to demonstrate fault and, in fact, you could still remain eligible for benefits even if you had been responsible for your own injury.
If your injury results in a disability, you may also be able to obtain Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). These are benefits paid to workers and their dependents which are separate and distinct from Workers’ Compensation insurance.
If your injury was caused by a defective product or the negligent or careless conduct of a third party, you may have a personal injury claim. In this case, you may collect damages for pain and suffering, as well as damages for lost wages and medical care.
