Workers’ Compensation Injuries

In the event of a workplace injury, you will need comprehensive counsel. We will assist you in gathering all relevant evidence to support your claim and will assist you in the preparation of all required documents.

Types of job-related injury claims include:

  • Traumatic injuries resulting from workplace accidents, such as broken bones, burns, head or spinal cord injuries, paralysis or amputation
  • Repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis
  • Joint injuries, including knee, ankle, hip, shoulder, elbow or wrist injuries
  • Neck and back deterioration or injury
  • Accidental or wrongful death in the workplace
  • Exposure to toxic substances or occupational illness or disease

Workers’ compensation laws govern only injuries caused by your employer or a coworker. If you are injured by the negligence of a third party, we can help you file a personal injury lawsuit in court to recover damages.
