Who We Help
Our decades of experience as a workers’ compensation law firm has made an impact on the lives of countless workers across a range of dangerous industries. No case is too complex or big for our team to handle.
We’re skilled in helping individuals who were injured in high-risk occupations, including:
- Assembly line workers, auto and factory workers, and carpenters and contractors: For any kind of manufacturing and factory work, a considerable amount of repetition is involved, which can cause injuries over time. From our experience, we’ve seen countless neck and back injuries, repetitive motion injuries, and a range of other serious impairments associated with these professions.
- Construction workers: The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries to work in the United States. Construction workers frequently work from heights, which cause a falling danger, as well as handle heavy machinery that can cause injuries if faulty or used improperly.
- Health care workers: It’s common knowledge that doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals face high risk in hospitals and other medical centers, as they’re regularly exposed to contagious and life-altering diseases. Health care workers can also be injured from lifting and moving patients, as well as by patients who are violent and lash out while workers are trying to treat them.
- Truck drivers: While there’s a certain level of risk involved any time anyone is on the road, truck drivers are constantly driving for their jobs, which makes their chances of getting into a vehicle collision much higher. Truck drivers are in danger of being struck by other distracted or impaired drivers, and the cargo they carry can be hazardous and include gasoline or chemicals, which can cause fires or explosions if damaged.
What Happens If Your Workers’ Comp Claim is Denied
The more serious the injuries, the more expensive it can be to treat them. Construction workers, truck drivers, and other individuals with high-risk occupations often experience injuries that transform their lives, from brain trauma to burns to paralysis. This is why it’s essential that you seek workers’ compensation benefits, as costs of treatment can add up to tens of thousands of dollars. You also need to factor in future medical costs like physical therapy, counseling, at-home nursing care, and more.
If your claim has been denied, don’t worry. Our attorney not only helps workers file claims, but can also make an appeal if your claim was rejected the first time around. Experiencing rejection is fairly common, especially because insurance companies frequently attempt to deny coverage in order to save money. Our lawyer can inform you of your worker’s rights and protect you through swift and passionate advocacy.
