Workplace Accident Lawyer: Advocacy with The Personal Injury Pros

Ensuring workplace safety is paramount, regardless of your industry. Every sector is bound by laws and regulations aimed at minimizing workplace injuries, typically incorporated into employee handbooks and workplace protocols.
Despite employers’ efforts, workplace injuries can still occur. If you find yourself injured at work, it’s crucial to seek proper compensation for your suffering. Navigating this process becomes smoother with the assistance of a workplace accident attorney, ensuring you utilize all available resources during this period of uncertainty and distress.

The Personal Injury Pros: Your Workplace Injury Attorneys

For years, The Personal Injury Pros has assisted victims of workplace accidents, offering profound expertise in workplace injury law. Our team leverages the state’s employment laws to your advantage, advocating for your rights in court. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your injury, we possess the knowledge to represent you effectively.

We focus on workplace injury claims and workers’ compensation benefits, believing that no one should endure the financial repercussions of a workplace injury. Your job should support you, not impede your participation in life. When a workplace injury leads to enduring challenges, we ensure you are not financially burdened by an incident that was not your fault.

Understanding Workplace Accidents

Employers are legally obligated to maintain safe facilities for employees, following specific laws and standards. Workplace accidents can result from unsafe facilities, a fellow employee’s negligence, or unforeseeable circumstances.
Examples of workplace accidents include:
  • Slip and fall incidents
  • Machinery accidents
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Exposure to toxic materials and chemicals
Any injury or incident at work falls under the category of a workplace accident.

Your Rights After a Workplace Accident

If you suffer a workplace accident, you have certain rights, including the right to:
  1. File a workers’ compensation claim.
  2. Seek medical attention.
  3. Return to your job upon medical clearance.
Your employer cannot prevent you from filing a workers’ compensation claim, and they must provide workers’ compensation insurance for such situations. Regarding medical care, limitations may apply based on your insurance plan. Additionally, your employer must allow your return to work post-medical clearance, with no repercussions for your absence during recovery.

Workplace Accidents and Workers' Compensation

Under employment law, most businesses must have workers’ compensation insurance, providing compensation for employees injured at work. This coverage extends to various workplace accidents, barring specific exceptions such as engaging in dangerous behavior or being under the influence.
Following workplace rules and guidelines usually ensures coverage in the event of an accident. For instance, if a box falls, breaking your foot while walking to the break room for a mandated break, you are generally covered by workers’ compensation.

Importance of a Workplace Accident Attorney

Workplace accidents and workers’ compensation claims may seem straightforward, yet complexities arise. Employers often attempt to avoid compensation by blaming the victim or another worker. Drug tests are employed to find excuses not to pay. In such situations, a workplace injury demands comprehensive support.
Costs associated with legal representation vary among work injury law firms, typically billed hourly. Discussing fees with potential attorneys beforehand ensures affordability and clarity. An attorney ensures your employer acts legally, enhancing the chances of receiving proper medical care without personal financial burden.

Disability Benefits

In some instances, workers may be eligible for temporary or permanent disability benefits after a workplace injury.

Temporary Disability Benefits: If unable to work during recovery, temporary disability benefits provide financial support. These benefits can last until your doctor clears you for normal activities.

Permanent Disability Benefits: When a worker cannot return to work due to permanent injury, these benefits compensate for lost wages and opportunities.

Death Benefits

In tragic cases where an employee dies due to a workplace accident, the family may seek a wrongful death settlement, covering burial expenses and providing ongoing payments to replace the deceased’s income.

Suing Your Workplace for an Injury

While suing your workplace for an injury is generally not permitted due to workers’ compensation coverage, exceptions exist. You can sue your employer if:
  1. Assault by your employer or another employee occurs.
  2. Your employer attempts to cover up your injury, worsening the situation.
  3. Your employer lacks required workers’ compensation insurance.
  4. Injury results from a product made by your company but obtained elsewhere.
Apart from these exceptions, workers are limited to workers’ compensation payments. Pressing charges against a fellow employee for negligence leading to injury may be an option.

What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
A personal injury lawyer is not only for taking cases to court. A lawyer can handle every legal process your claim involves on your behalf. Most personal injury claims do not need to go to trial. Instead, your lawyer will negotiate a settlement offer that is fair to you with the insurance company involved.
How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
Insurance companies and the civil courts may award compensation to injury victims according to the unique specifications of each case. A lawyer from our personal injury law firm will assess your case and let you know if we believe you have grounds for a lawsuit. If so, we may be able to help you prove your case and achieve fair compensation.
How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

At The Personal Injury Pros, your injury lawyer will not cost you anything unless we are successful in obtaining a financial award. Our law firm operates on a contingency fee basis for all personal injury claims. We only charge our clients for our services if we win their claims, and only then out of the award won. You will pay your attorney directly out of your settlement or judgment award rather than out of your pocket.

How Long Do I Have To File a Personal Injury Claim?

You do not have an endless amount of time in which to file a personal injury claim. Depending on where the injury occurred, if you have a lawsuit, you must file the correct paperwork by the state’s deadline where the event took place. The legal term for this deadline is the statute of limitations. Most states have a statute of limitations of two years for most personal injury claims, your attorney will consult with you on the timelines associated with your personal injury claim.
