On-the-Job Injuries and Compensation
Accidents in the workplace are unfortunately a commonplace occurrence in today’s industrial world. In addition to the lost wages that accompany time spent recovering from these injuries, workers also face large medical bills and sometimes are rendered unable to complete the tasks for which they were hired to perform. Unfortunately, many employers are reluctant and unwilling to provide compensation for their injured employees, and fight to prevent having to pay workers compensation. If you have been hurt on the job, you are entitled to compensation. The lawyers of Parkman White, LLP can help you recover lost wages and medical expenses, and will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
There are several ways in which workers are injured on the job. Sometimes injuries are the result of innocent mistakes, and workers compensation can be employed to alleviate the financial burden of these injuries. In other situations, the employer may have subjected the worker to unreasonably dangerous working conditions, and the worker may have a claim directly against the employer. Often we see workplace accidents result from the negligence of third parties. In these situations, it is possible for a worker to get compensation from the responsible party, while at the same time receiving workers compensation payments.
The attorneys of Parkman White, LLP know exactly what to look for in preparing a case for trial, and can help guide you through the process. No one should be forced to bear the financial burden of a workplace accident alone. We can help you prepare your claim, gather the right evidence and negotiate with your employer or their insurer. We know how difficult these situations can be, and we will make sure you are not retaliated against for pursuing the claim to which you are lawfully entitled.
