What Type Of Injury Do You Have?

- Falls on same level
- Overexertion in lifting (straining)
- Being struck by an object
- Falls to lower levels
- Overexertion in pushing or pulling

- Exposure to harmful substances

We routinely help people suffering from these injuries and other injuries obtain the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve. We’ve helped those with claims ranging from brain injuries to psychological injuries to chronic pain. Our office can handle a wide variety of injury claims.
Does Workers’ Compensation Only Cover Injuries?
No, workers’ compensation also covers injuries and illnesses that are a result of work, but not from an accident. Common examples of this include carpal tunnel syndrome, back issues and repetitive stress injuries.
Can I Lose My Job For Reporting My Injury?
No, federal law prohibits employers from firing employees for reporting injuries or violations. If your employer does fire you for reporting your injury or collecting compensation, you may be able to file a claim against your former employer for violating your employee rights.
