Legal Help After A Work Accident
After a work accident, you should file a workers’ compensation claim as soon as possible. You should also talk with a lawyer to learn whether you may be eligible for additional damages. In some cases, a third party is responsible for workplace accidents and injuries. We can file a separate personal injury suit against negligent third parties for additional compensation, including compensation for pain and suffering, which is not available in workers’ comp benefits.
