Some of our personal injury cases include injuries or death caused by:
Every state has a workers compensation system designed to provide injured employees with compensation in the event of an injury caused by work. Most employers are required to carry workers compensation insurance. Workers compensation claims can also include occupational diseases, conditions caused by exposure to hazardous substances, or carpal tunnel syndrome. The workers compensation laws are very different from the laws governing a general personal injury case. Both the employee and employer have particular rights and duties not found in other types of injury cases. A workers' compensation claim provides for lifetime medical benefits for the injury unless the claimant and employer both agree to settle the claim. The Commission provides mediation services for those interested in settling claims or disputes.
An experienced workers compensation attorney will help maximize the recovery and handle the complicated procedures involved with filing a claim and going to a hearing. There are important issues concerning how the injury happened, medical treatment, reporting injuries, and other filing deadlines and procedures. We can make sure that your claim is not weakened or lost.
