If you are injured on the job, there are complex rules and deadlines which apply to filing an injury claim. Our experienced workers compensation legal counsel will assist you every step of the way. Further, if you have already filed a claim and have been denied, we can help you fight the denial and win the workers compensation benefits to which you are entitled.
You may be entitled to file a workers compensation lawsuit
Many work-related injuries are caused by the negligent conduct of individuals or companies other than the employer:
- Injuries on property not owned by employer
- Construction site accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Dangerous/defective products
Under these circumstances, in addition to workers compensation benefits, you may be able to file a separate lawsuit and recover damages from the negligent non-employer such as a property owner, negligent driver, product manufacturer, general contractor, or subcontractor.
