Workers’ compensation is the most common solution in cases of workplace injuries. It is available to workers who have suffered from unforeseeable accidents on the job. We will guide you through the process of applying for workers’ compensation and work to get you the finances you need to get through this.
In some cases, the safety or personal protection equipment was removed or not provided and you got hurt. It happened in the past to someone else and your employer knew that it would happen again. Unfortunately, it happened to you. We will fight to get you what you deserve.
Third Party Liability
Some workplace injuries are the result of a defective product on the job. Others may be the result of a contractor or other party working alongside an employee. In these cases, we will pursue action against the party that was responsible for the workplace injury and see that you get the compensation you deserve.
Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA)
People employed by a railroad company have a type of protection, similar to workers’ compensation, when they suffer an injury that is job-related. This is known as FELA or, the Federal Employer’s Liability Act. FELA is designed to shift the liability for work injuries to the employer thereby encouraging employers to make rail yards as safe as possible to prevent injuries. If you have been in an accident or suffered from occupational health hazards, contact us to take the first step in filing a FELA claim. The attorneys at our firm can get you the compensation for your physical suffering and medical expenses and can help you avoid mistakes that can cost you your just settlement.Contact Us
