There is a common misconception that you can only be injured at work if you have a dangerous job that requires extensive manual labor. While that may boost your risk of a workplace accident or a chronic health condition resulting from your job, the truth is that everyone has some risk of an injury at work, and therefore everyone is potentially entitled to workers’ compensation in the case of an accident or injury.
If you’ve suffered an injury even partially due to your job, it’s important to consider talking to a workers’ compensation lawyer to understand your rights and your relationship with your employer.

At Carpenter Law Firm, Pat and his expert team will thoroughly examine your workplace injury case and make sure that you are aware of all your options. And because fees are based on a percentage of your settlement, there is no risk for you to call our office or make an appointment to meet in person.
