Every job has its risks, some more than others
Whether it's driving in a snowstorm to deliver a package to a client, lifting a heavy object, or working in construction, many workers face risk of injury each day.
Workers' Compensation laws are meant to ensure that you are covered if you are injured on the job or become ill due to a work-related illness. While these laws protect you from having to sue an employer for benefits, they also limit the amount you can recover from your employer. However, if your injury was related to a product or a faulty piece of equipment, Workers’ Compensation laws allow you to bring a suit against that the manufacturer of that product or equipment.
Workers' Compensation litigation is complex. Your employer or your employer's insurance carrier will be represented by an experienced attorney. Valid claims can be rejected. Employers can apply pressure for you to return to work before you feel you are able to do so. And you may fear for your job. If you've suffered a workplace injury, you need skilled legal assistance to ensure that your legal rights are fully protected.
