Workplace Injuries

Injuries in the workplace usually involve a claim for workers compensation benefits.  We have extensive experience handling these claims.  But the benefits that may be recovered are limited. There is no compensation for pain and suffering, for example.  Benefit amounts are also limited by state law.  It is important if you have a claim for work comp, that your case also be evaluated for possible third party claims.  That is, often times if another company or person other than your employer is responsible for your injuries, you may also be able to make a claim or file suit for additional damages. Such claims can often result in obtaining full compensation for your injuries, rather than the limited recovery allowed by workers compensation.
