Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Workplace injuries, which can sometimes include illnesses, are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Filing for workers’ comp may seem simple and straightforward, but it may not be. There are deadlines to meet, and investigation is needed to identify all the relevant factors, for example if any third party may also be liable.

If you were injured at work or because of work and are considering filing for workers’ compensation, call us at 800-796-1636 or submit your case details online and someone will contact you shortly. You pay nothing unless you are successful and receive compensation.

Workplace Injuries and Accidents

Every year, millions of workers are injured on the job or because of their job. Some of them, sadly, die due to on-the-job accidents or workplace conditions.

  • Accidents involving heavy machinery or equipment
  • Broken bones

  • Hearing damage or loss
  • Skin diseases or disorders

What a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Can Do

Whether you were just injured or are in the middle of the claims process, a lawyer can help.

Serious workplace injuries can be life-changing, and they can affect your life for months, years, or even forever. Basic worker compensation payments can help, but a lawyer can help you get the full support and compensation due to you. The lawyers:

  • Know the deadlines and the statutes of limitations (how long after the accident or injury you have to file suit, depending on where you live)
  • Are familiar with all the forms to fill out
  • Know how to investigate every possible avenue and source of compensation that can benefit you, including payments for medical bills; current and, if applicable, future, lost wages; and possible third-party liability. Depending on the circumstances, there could be many relevant issues to consider.

Your employer has attorneys to represent their interests. The insurance company that wrote the workers’ compensation policy has lawyers to represent their interests. Shouldn’t you have lawyers on your side, fighting for you, and making sure you get everything you deserve?
