Workplace accidents occur daily and can have lasting consequences for both victims and their families. In some cases, an injured worker can receive compensation for his or her injuries beyond the limitations placed by workers’ compensation laws. If you’ve been injured while on the job, we can match you up with a lawyer who will ensure that you receive the compensation you’re entitled to and the justice you deserve.
Some occupations can be inherently dangerous. Even so, there are numerous safety practices employers should, and in many cases, must put into place to protect their employees. Sadly, some companies care more about their bottom line and cutting costs than they do about protecting workers.
In the wake of a workplace injury or fatality, associated costs can threaten the financial security of victims and even leave them without a source of income. In situations of debilitating injury, medical bills can swallow savings, retirement funds and college funds as family members struggle to adjust, both economically and emotionally. When a death occurs, funeral costs can also be tremendously draining. If the individual who died was a primary wage earner, a family could become destitute in a very short time.
If you or a family member has been injured in a workplace accident, you may be able to recover financial damages that include medical-related costs, lost earnings, and both physical and psychological pain and suffering. We can help match you with a lawyer who is knowledgeable and experienced in workplace injury cases.
