Helping Injured Workers
All occupations have the potential to cause injury; however, some jobs put workers at increased risk for injury, such as:
- Automotive assembly
- Emergency response (police, fire, EMTs)
We have represented workers from the nearby Ford plant, UPS packaging facility and numerous unions, including steelworkers, electrical workers, glaziers and laborers.
All injured workers are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. The application process can be challenging, however. We can help you gather the necessary medical documents, represent you at hearings and help you with denials. You may also need assistance getting the insurance company to make payments on time or pay you the correct amount.
If a third party was responsible for your work injury, our lawyer can pursue that claim as well. A negligent third party might be the manufacturer of defective equipment, a sub-contractor on the job site or the driver of a vehicle that hit you. You may be able to collect on this claim and workers’ comp.
