Do You Know Your Rights?

An employee who is injured on the job is usually entitled to some compensation, even if they are at fault for the incident. If your employer does not have workers' compensation coverage, you can file a claim against your employer.

Your income determines the amount of workers' compensation you receive — the more you earn, the more compensation you are entitled to. Workers' compensation benefits include replacement wages, medical benefits and dependent family benefits. Depending on the injury, you may receive partial disability payments, total and permanent disability payments or compensation for loss of function.

If your workers' compensation claim is denied, you have the right to appeal the decision. Our experienced personal injury attorneys can help you fight for your workers' compensation benefits.

What Is Covered by Workers' Compensation?

Repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, are usually covered by workers' compensation. Serious injuries such as burn injuries as well as wrongful death caused by slip and fall accidents, fire, explosion, electrical accidents or defective machinery are also usually covered. If a defective productive or machine caused the injury, you may be able to make a claim against the manufacturer in addition to your workers' compensation claim. There are often multiple liable parties involved in construction accidents, also.

We can help you determine who is liable for your injury and seek the compensation you are entitled to. In these cases, legal fees are usually paid for by a workers' compensation insurance carrier or handled on a contingency fee basis.
