No matter how or where an injury happens, it can really throw your life for a loop. Hospital bills, lost wages and potentially disabling medical conditions are only some of the challenges you may face.
Fortunately, the law allows you to seek appropriate compensation from responsible parties. If your injury is work-related, a workers' compensation claim is in order. In cases that involve other types of injuries, such as a car accident or slip and fall, you have the right to pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.

Workers' Compensation Benefits
When you are injured on the job and unable to work, you need financial assistance to pay medical bills and monthly expenses. Workers' compensation is meant to be an injured workers' remedy for these situations. Unfortunately, many employers and their insurance carriers make it difficult for injured workers to get the benefits they deserve.
Most people cannot fight a workers' comp insurance company without the help of an attorney. Our firm has more than 20 years of experience in helping injured people get the full workers' compensation benefits they need after a workplace injury or occupational illness.
This includes protecting people in occupations such as:
- Warehouse, factory and industrial work – forklift accidents, toxic chemical exposure, fires and other hazards
- Construction – falls from ladders or scaffolding, electrical accidents, falling objects and other dangers
- Longshore and harbor work – maritime injuries covered under the LHWCA, including neck and back injuries and repetitive stress injuries
- Health care – injuries involving lifting patients, needle sticks, assaults by patients and other hazards
In addition, if you were injured in a job accident by the negligence of someone other than your employer, we can represent you in a personal injury lawsuit against that party. No matter what occupation you have, you can rely on our knowledge and experience in workers' compensation cases. We are ready to fight for the benefits you deserve.
Our Personal Injury Practice
The other main area we focus our practice on is personal injury. As in our workers' compensation practice, we are dedicated to fighting for full and fair compensation for injured people.
If you have been injured in a car accident or suffered any other form of personal injury, let us act on your behalf against insurance companies and other responsible parties. We can take on any opponent, regardless of size or net worth.
In a slip-and-fall case, we could do this through a premises liability claim. If your injury was due to a medical error, we can bring a medical malpractice suit.
