Personal Injury vs. Workers Compensation

Workers injuries do not require you prove negligence for your claim. However, personal injury claims do.

As we talk, we will analyze your claim in the light of Personal Injury Law. It’s possible you may have a separate and larger claim for your injury and pain.

Common Issues in Workers’ Compensation

Claim Denials: Often due to disputes over the injury’s work-related nature or pre-existing conditions.

Pre-existing Conditions: A clerk’s claim for a knee injury might be denied, citing a prior sports injury. We demonstrate how the workplace incident aggravated the condition.

Benefit Delays: Delays in receiving medical treatment or wage replacement benefits.

Medical Treatment Delays: A construction worker waiting weeks for surgery approval. Our Workers Compensation Attorney expedites the process to get timely medical care.

Wage Replacement Delays: A restaurant worker struggling financially while waiting for wage benefits. We ensure prompt wage replacement.

Employer Retaliation: Instances where employers retaliate against employees for filing claims, such as through termination or discrimination.

Wrongful Termination: A retail worker being fired after filing a compensation claim. Our Work Accident Lawyer fights for their rights and compensation.

Workplace Harassment: An injured nurse facing hostility from management after filing a claim. We protect against harassment or a hostile work environment.
