In many workplaces, accidents are common - especially in more dangerous fields, such as construction sites. Slip & fall accidents can occur at fast food restaurants after an employee has mopped the floor, or accidental needle sticks can happen in the medical field. While minor work accidents are usually no big deal, serious work accidents can cause significant injuries and even death. If you or a loved one have been the victim of an accident at work, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
While workman’s compensation is designed to cover employees in the event of an accident, many employers don’t want their employees to file workman’s comp, or to report the accident. They may be unwilling to pay for medical care, stating that the employee is at fault for the accident, and may even fire an employee after the accident. As an employee, you have rights – however, standing up for your rights on your own can be difficult. You need the expertise of a seasoned personal injury attorney to provide you with sound legal advice and who will fight for your right to receive full and fair compensation for your injuries.
