Navigating workplace injuries can be a challenge. You’ve never been through this before, so how do you know where to start? Work-related injury lawyers help employees like you, who endure all different types of injuries on the job, take action with their worker’s comp case. With Carpenter, you put the power in your hands.
Some of the most common work accidents that occur include:
Overexertion: When lifting or throwing an object results in an injury like a pulled muscle. Construction sites and factories see a lot of these injuries.
Slips & Falls: Wet and snowy floor conditions can be to blame for many issues.
Fall to Lower Level: This can even affect teachers if they fall down a flight of stairs, but it most commonly affects workers who fall off a ladder or roof.
You can make sure your physical or mental condition is considered work-related if it happened within the walls of your company, at a work-sponsored event, or was a preexisting condition that worsened on the job. If it did, you can use the law to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
A seasoned attorney can make all the difference for you along the way. They’ll know exactly what you need to do, and exactly what your employer needs to do — backing you up in the event your employer fails to complete their responsibilities.
Know that you are not entitled to sue your employer for the injuries themselves, but your employer may be subject to a lawsuit or fines if they refuse to-or-fail-to-provide compensation.
