Worker’s Compensation: Work Related Injuries

Every day workers get injured on the job – these injuries may be serious, permanent, or even lead to death. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that 5,000 workers die each year from work-related injuries.

If you or a loved one is injured on the job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, regardless of who is at fault. The law requires employers to buy insurance and to compensate employees in the event of work-related injuries.

Workers’ compensation benefits usually cover your medical expenses and a percentage (usually one half to two thirds) of your wages while you are unable to work. In exchange for these guaranteed payments, you will not be able to sue your employer. You may, however, still sue any third party who may have negligently contributed to, or caused, your injury.

If you or someone you love has been injured, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact us today for a free legal consultation.
