[Workers Compensation] When you get hurt at work, the insurance company is not your friend
When you get hurt at work, your employer relies on the insurance company’s attorneys to protect their interest. They have lawyers and medical professionals, all working against you! You need to take steps to look out for yourself. We are just a phone call away from springing into action to protect your rights today.
Why Should I Contact an Accident Attorney?
On average, injured workers who do not have a workers comp lawyer advocating for them get settlements that are 35% lower than what they can get with an attorney. Attorneys work these cases on a contingency basis, so if we do not win your case, you do not have to pay anything. If you are concerned about losing your job if you file a claim, don't be. If you are willing and able to work, you have a right to keep your job, even after you have filed a lawsuit. Most people don't realize this, but worker's compensation lawsuits are filed against employer insurance companies and not the company itself. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain from talking to an attorney at Rohan Law about your case. The first consultation is free.
Types of Accident Claims and Lawsuits
Repetitive Stress Injury: Repetitive stress injuries can occur over time from repetitive movements performed on the job. For example, chronic back pain, bursitis, and tendonitis are common injuries resulting from repetitive stress. You may be entitled to compensation for these injuries. An experienced injury lawyer can help you explore options available to you if you are in pain from a job-related stress injury.
Catastrophic injuries: Catastrophic injuries include injuries on the job that involve a significant loss, such as a loss of a life or a limb. Permanent bodily damage that could prevent you from ever working again or make you have to change careers is considered a catastrophic injury. If you lose a loved one due to an accident that they suffered on their job, you may also be entitled to compensation for your loss.
Car crash on the job: If you are in an auto accident and it happened while you were on the job or in a company vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation for a job injury and a personal injury. Our attorneys have experience in personal injury claims and workers' compensation claims. They can work with you to file claims for both, your job accident and your car crash.
