An injury on the job may entitle you to workers’ compensation. When you’ve been hurt on the job, you need effective counsel on your side from the start. You should consult an attorney immediately so that you don’t forfeit any of your rights under the law. In many cases, employers or their insurance companies may encourage you not to hire an attorney if you are injured while working, with the promise they will treat you fairly. In these instances, we can ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive a fair and informed settlement.
Remember that workers’ compensation covers many different types of workplace injuries, not just falls or machine-related accidents. Workplace injuries can also include conditions that develop over time (such as carpal tunnel syndrome) or injuries that occur off-site while you’re performing work for your employer.
From the very beginning, our firm will ensure that the extent of your injuries is properly documented. We want you to be able to focus on your recovery, while we pursue your case to see that you receive the maximum compensation to which you are entitled under the law.
You won’t incur any retainers or hourly fees on your workers’ compensation case. Our fees on these cases do not exceed 20% of the total recovery. Remember, in some work-related accidents where someone other than you or your employer are responsible for your injury, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit in addition to maintaining a workers’ compensation action. In these situations, we can provide representation on both the workers’ compensation claim as well as the personal injury action to maximize your financial recovery.
