Lawyers Who Will Fight To Get You Full And Fair Compensation

Workers' compensation is a system that allows people who sustain an injury at work to get payment for their medical treatments as well as a percentage of their wages during recovery. Besides temporary payments, if an employee suffers a serious or life-altering injury, they may be able to get permanent compensation from their employer.

What Exactly Is Workers' Compensation?

To file a workers' compensation claim, you must be an employee and your injury must occur at your workplace. Once you are injured, your employer should begin covering your medical treatments and paying your wages. Unfortunately, an employer may try to deny a person's rightful workers' compensation claim or force them back to work before their full recovery.

Nearly all work-related injuries qualify for workers compensation, including:

  • Crush injuries and limb loss caused by industrial accidents
  • Scaffold collapses which can lead to head, neck and brain injuries
  • Injuries caused by forklift collisions or falls
  • Industrial disease caused by heavy labor and exposure to chemicals
  • Construction accidents such as an electrical shocks or fall
