Experienced workers’ compensation lawyers
All these stores need workers to stock shelves, prepare food, cash out customers, bag groceries, clean spills and perform other duties. They face the risk of injury or illness on every shift. For example, workers may be hurt because of:
- Lifting injuries
- Slips and falls
- Falling objects
- Forklift or pallet jack accidents
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Cuts from opening boxes
- Exposure to viruses and bacteria
Suddenly, a worker needs medical treatment. This may involve diagnostic tests, surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, medication, and multiple follow-up visits with doctors. Recovery may take weeks, months or even longer. In some cases, workers can be left with a permanent disability.
The state’s workers’ compensation system is designed to help injured workers get through this difficult time. Employers and their insurance companies often challenge workers’ compensation claims, however, because it helps them save money. They may challenge the seriousness of your injury or argue your injury isn’t work-related.
The insurance company may even make a lowball settlement offer, hoping you’ll just take it and go away. They just want you to settle for less than you deserve. We think you deserve more and are willing to go all the way to court to get it if that’s what it takes.
