Injured At Work?
Our Attorneys Can Help You Get Workers' Compensation
You depend on your job to put food on your table and a roof over your head. You work to pay all your bills, your rent and all the other expenses that add up every day. That's why a workplace accident can have a devastating effect on your life - physically, emotionally and financially. That's why our workers' compensation lawyers want to help.
You may be in constant pain. You may have to cut back on work or be unable to work at all. You may suddenly be worried about financial hardship. Workers' compensation allows employees to receive financial assistance if they are a victim of an occupation-related injury or illness. With workers' compensation, lawsuits often are avoided because it financially helps the worker and legally protects the employer.
Even so, workers' comp cases can become very complicated, very quickly. That's because many employers and insurance companies question whether the injury is real. Even if they do acknowledge that someone is genuinely hurt, they sometimes don't provide injury victims and their families with enough money to cover the true cost of their personal injury accident at work.
That's not right. That's why we fight so hard for the rights of injured workers throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. We thoroughly understand state and federal labor laws and we know how to get results. Contact us today. Call 1-800-WIN-WIN-1 and talk to an experienced workers' compensation attorney right now.
What are common workplace injuries?
There many different types of workplace injuries. Many of the most common ones eligible for workers' compensation include:
- Traumatic injuries or reactions to substances or chemicals at the workplace (such as at construction sites)
- Repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel
- Back injuries
- Asbestos exposure (mesothelioma)
In particular, workers' compensation provides funds for:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Vocational training
- Death benefits, such as funeral expenses, if the situation ended in the death of the employee
- Mental and emotional harm
Workers are eligible for money once their injury makes them unable to earn full wages for three consecutive days or their injury requires medical attention. The amount employees receive is about 75 percent of their spendable earnings per week. However, such figures vary from case to case. That's why it's critical that you contact the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone in Massachusetts or the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone & Morelli in Connecticut, right away.
"Why do I need a Workers' Compensation Attorney?"
When you have an experienced workers' compensation lawyer working for you, you can take an aggressive approach right from the start. Instead of settling for whatever benefits your employer tells you you're eligible to receive, you can demand the maximum compensation allowed under the law.
But even if you receive workers' compensation, such benefits sometimes don't cover all the expenses associated with your accident. You also might have a hard time obtaining benefits if your employer or a doctor chosen by your company claims you're not hurt. That's where we can help.
We can also assist you if you're dealing with a third-party workplace accident caused by someone who works for a different company. These claims in particular can be extremely complicated, especially since the person who caused your accident might deny any wrongdoing.
No matter what type of workplace injury you're dealing with, we know how to find the facts many law firms overlook. We realize that seemingly minor details can end up being critical pieces of evidence in a compelling workers' comp claim. We're even prepared to take your case to trial if necessary.
