Workplace Injury

Have you been hurt on the job?

A worker injured on the job is generally prohibited from making a claim directly against his or her employer because of entitlement to Workers Compensation benefits available through the employer’s insurance. However, when you are injured as a result of an unsafe piece of machinery or product on the job, or through negligence of a person or company on the job other than your employer, you may be able to make a legal claim for damages. In such case, you need advice from attorneys who are experienced, qualified and well-respected in handling such claims.

Questions to help you understand if you have a case for additional compensation

  • Was your injury caused by a defective product while at work?  
  • Are there toxic substances or hazardous materials at your workplace? 
  • Did a third-party (contractor, customer or vendor) cause your injury?  
  • Does your employer carry Workers Compensation insurance?
