We have extensive experience handling various work injury and disability cases

If you have been injured on the job, you have the right to receive payment for medical expenses and compensation for lost wages while unable to return to work. With workers' compensation claims, it does not matter who or what caused the accident: the important thing is whether or not it happened while you were working. Workers' compensation and disability benefits apply to injuries to all parts of the body, including hidden pains that are difficult to detect from outside appearance alone. Our law firm has over 40 years of experience handling claims for the following injuries and disabilities:

 

  • Hand & Arm: These often involve repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Foot & Leg: Torn ligaments, sprains are often associated with these injuries.
  • Neck & Back: These often involve spinal injuries, paralysis, herniated discs, and whiplash.
