Workers’ compensation benefits are intended to help you if you have been injured in a workplace accident, suffered a repetitive motion disorder due to job responsibilities or became ill because of exposure to hazardous materials in the workplace. Unfortunately, getting these benefits is not always a simple process. Your claim may be denied, your benefits may be cut off prematurely or you may face any number of other problems. That is why it is important to have a skilled lawyer by your side to guide you through the process and protect your rights.

Accidents can happen in any line of work. We handle factory accidents, manufacturing accidents, warehouse accidents and more. We represent laborers, construction workers, retail employees, office workers and anyone else who has suffered an on-the-job injury.
The nature of the work injury may play a role in how the claim is handled. For example, a back injury that is suffered in a fall at work may be handled differently than a carpal tunnel injury that built up over years of repetitive work. We also know what to do in cases involving pre-existing conditions that have been worsened or reinjured in work accidents. These matters can be complex, and we may need to bring in experts to strengthen the case. We will do what it takes to help you get meaningful results.
The primary categories of workers’ compensation benefits are wage benefits and medical benefits. Wage benefits cover the wages that have been lost due to the work injury. Medical benefits cover all of the medical treatment that is needed, from doctor appointments to surgeries to prescription medications to physical therapy.
Because our law firm also handles personal injury claims, we have the ability to review work accident cases for possible third-party claims. These are claims in which a third party, someone other than the employer, is responsible for the work injuries. For example, if a person is hit by a negligent driver while driving for work, he or she may be able to file a personal injury claim against the negligent driver, as well as a workers’ compensation claim. These claims are common in construction site accidents.
