Workplace Accidents

Workers compensation is a type of insurance that replaces wages and provides medical benefits for employees who were injured on the job. However, many employers and insurance companies fail to fairly compensate injured workers, which is why dealing with the legal complexities of a devastating work-related injury should not be done alone.

We will make sure the negligent party is held accountable for your damages and that you're treated fairly by your employer and the insurance company.

Fighting for the compensation you deserve after an injury on the job

The last thing you should have to worry about when you're on the clock is your well-being. However, thousands of workplace accidents and injuries occur every year. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), in 2009 more than 4,300 people were killed by fatal workplace injuries and another 1 million people received nonfatal workplace injuries. Being under a poorly secured load at the wrong time, one error with a bench grinder or being hit head-on while driving a company vehicle can change your life in an instant.

After a debilitating injury at work, you may be left with mounting medical bills and other expenses. To make matters worse, you have lost wages because you can't return to your job.

Workers' compensation can help replace wages and cover medical costs for people injured in the workplace, but workers are left without fair compensation.
