The attorney can help you in determining your settlement.
A Workers' Compensation Lawyer Protects Your Rights
It is not necessarily a simple process to get the full benefits in a work-related injury. Although the system was set up to protect both workers and employers, employers have increased premiums when injury claims are filed. There are often efforts to deny that your injuries were related to work duties. Has your claim been denied? The workers' comp attorney at the firm can help.
Third Party Liability
In some cases, a work-related injury involves a third party. In these cases, it may be possible to pursue compensation from that party - far beyond the amount you would get from workers' compensation. Cases in which equipment malfunctioned, there was a gas explosion, trench collapse or scaffolding collapse or another situation in which a 3rd party contractor was involved, it is important that you have legal representation to help you with the issue of pursuing compensation in a claim or lawsuit. There are many parties that could be involved in a construction site. Your own employer may not be fully responsible for the injuries you sustained. The firm should review your situation and determine whether there could be other options to pursue compensation that could help you and your family during this difficult time. Call the firm today.
