You May Need a Workers' Compensation Lawyer If…

Posted by Tony Brock | Mar 17, 2022 | 8 Comments

Think you don't need an injury attorney? These three types of personal injury cases, and the startling facts that accompany them, may make you think otherwise.

  • Workplace Injuries: In 2013, there were about 3,007,300 workplace injuries reported in the United States, with 917,000 of them requiring time away from work for the injured employees. Of those injuries that year, 229,190 were slip, trip, and fall incidents. As a result, many of these workers have to file workers compensation claims, but their employers don't necessarily pay them. If you've been hurt at work, and your employer hasn't complied with the laws surrounding your compensation, make sure you speak to an attorney to find out if you are eligible for a settlement.
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Worldwide, an estimated 1.3 million people die each year in road crashes for an average of 3,287 deaths each day. In the United States alone, more than 37,000 people die in road crashes, including pedestrians. Even those who aren't killed can still be left with debilitating and even life-long injuries, from paralysis and traumatic brain injury to broken bones and lost limbs. These accidents don't just involve passenger vehicles but semi-trucks, motorcycles, and even pedestrians. If you or a family member have been in one of these accidents, especially at the hands of a drunk or negligent driver, give us a call to discuss your case.
  • Medical Malpractice: Most commonly, these incidents can involve the wrong medication or dosage distributed to patients, but other times patients may be sent for an incorrect procedure. According to research, an estimated 225,000 people die each year due to medical malpractice. Additionally, another study found that 97% of 1,452 random medical malpractice cases involved a medical injury, and 66% involved a mistake caused by health care professionals. The vast majority of medical malpractice cases tend to go unreported, so don't be afraid to speak up if you've been injured or harmed under a doctor's care.

A handy blog that explains everything about workers’ compensation. It’s incredibly helpful that you mentioned that employees can get hurt at work, and that in order to claim compensation, engaging a lawyer is typically a good idea; because they know what to do to manage the situation well. Excellent advice! I’ll surely remember this if something happens in the future. Thank you very much. https://www.hughbestlawnj.com/newark

I had no idea that in 2013 there were 3 million workplace injuries. My brother got hurt at work yesterday, and we think he might be surgery on his back. We’ll definitely call a workers’ comp lawyer to help him get compensated for it. https://www.janssenlawfirm.com/work-injuries

As you mentioned, If you’ve been injured at work and your company hasn’t followed the laws governing your compensation, consult an attorney to see if you’re qualified for a settlement. My friend got hurt while he was at work as a constructor in a construction company. I will make sure to mention that he has a right to demand workers’ compensation; if not, he has a right to get a lawyer because his injury happens during work time. https://www.kkrylawfirm.com/workers-compensation/

Excellent article regarding when to engage a worker’s compensation lawyer. It’s excellent you indicated that a competent and knowledgeable worker compensation lawyer would know how to compile the appropriate claim documents that need to be given to our company and insurance provider to facilitate the claim process, relieving our worry. This is great; since my friend was injured at her company, I will definitely advise her about this so she can contact a lawyer. Thanks. https://www.lawofficeofcarlosmolinar.com/workers-comp
