We understand the frustrations that follow a work accident. Perhaps your company is denying that an accident took place. Perhaps the company-recommended doctor made a hasty diagnosis. Perhaps your company’s insurance carrier has delayed, devalued or denied your benefits claim. In all of these situations, you need a strong negotiator and accomplished litigator on your side.
Workers can be injured in numerous ways. Typically, there are three categories of injuries:
- Single accidents can include someone falling down the stairs, materials falling from above, slips-and-falls and crush injuries caused by industrial machinery.
- Repetitive stress can include muscle strain related to making the same movement over and over and carpal tunnel syndrome related to repetitive fine motor movements such as typing or filing.
- Toxic exposure can include any material or chemical that can cause illness or injury after repeated exposure.
If your accident is a result of a defective tool, elevator, handrail or any other product, it might be possible to file a third-party personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturer or the installer of the defective product.
