Work Related Injuries
The reason I went to law school was to represent workers who have been harmed. Being injured at work can be one of the worst things that happens to you in your life. I know this because I have been injured and I have had a close family member that was injured while working out of state in an auto-accident. That accident effectively ruined his life. Through skilled, aggressive, and knowledgeable representation of this family member, we were able to recover a very large sum for his case and make it so that he never had to work again. We will do everything within the bounds of the law to gain this kind of recovery for any of our future clients.
Work-related injuries where there is an at-fault third-party can be very complex because there are several different insurance policies that factor in. Dealing with workers’ compensation, and the amount they will be due from your recovery from the third-party is a delicate and extremely important negotiation. For example, I am currently dealing with a case where the workers’ compensation issues are causing a large problem with the case against the at-fault third-party. You need an attorney who has gone through these issues before. There may also be underinsured and uninsured motorist coverages that apply to get you more money than what you would normally be able to recover from just workers’ compensation and the at-fault party’s insurer. I have experience making sure that the UM/UIM coverage pays for the client’s recovery when the liability limits are insufficient.
If you have been injured while on the job due to the negligence of a third-party, I can help you. The initial consult is free. Feel free to call or come by and chat and we will discuss what the best strategy is to pursue your case and what the contingency fee will be. As in all of my injury cases, you pay nothing unless we recover for you.
