Work Related Injuries Do Happen

Bar Association ApprovedMost employers try to maintain safety at the workplace, but even under the best of circumstances, work injuries do happen. Sometimes work injuries are caused by accidents, while other time they are a direct result of negligence. Either way, having a workers' compensation lawyer to help you with the system is important.

Workers' compensation is a state-mandated insurance program that provides compensation to employees who experience job-related injuries and/or illnesses. Regardless of who's at fault, an injured employee should get workers' compensation benefits under workers' compensation law. In exchange for these benefits, an employee does not have the right to sue the employer in court.

Workers' compensation laws constantly change and it is important not to rely on your employer to get that kind of information. Keep in mind the statute of limitations for your state. Employees are typically given 2 years to file a claim with the workers' compensation department in their state. If an employee fails to file the claim within that time limit, they may be denied some or all benefits.

Don't let this happen to you. If you were involved in a work related injury, contact an experienced workers' compensation lawyer who can help evaluate your case and make sure that your employee rights are fully protected. A workers' compensation lawyer can research the law, interview witnesses, collect records, ad plan an appropriate legal strategy so that you can get fair recovery.
