Workers’ Compensation: Help for Injured Workers
The workers’ compensation system is designed to help people injured at work — these benefits are available to workers regardless of fault. As long as you were injured at work, you may be eligible for these benefits:
- Medical benefits
- Temporary total benefits
- Permanent partial benefits
- Permanent total benefits
We rarely accept the first settlement offer provided by an insurance company —workers’ compensation claims are usually undervalued. To help build a strong case, we will not hesitate to hire experts that will be able to paint a vivid picture to document and support the full extent of your injuries.
Third Party Personal Injury Claims In Addition to Workers’ Compensation
Besides your workers’ compensation claim, you may also have a valid third party personal injury claim against other parties responsible for causing your work injury. Many work environments are dangerous, especially construction sites and industrial plants. We have the experience necessary to advocate for your interests in a personal injury claim — we have been representing the injured and disabled for over 40 years.
