A Workers’ Compensation Claim Lawyer You Can Count On
If you suffer from a work-related injury, illness, or disability while on the job you may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. This program is meant to meet employer and employee interests – employees receive payment for their expenses without any regards to fault but in return lose the right to sue their employers for negligence. However, in certain circumstances you can retain the right to file a lawsuit against a third party for your workplace injuries. In those cases partnering with a lawyer with experience in workers compensation matters is key.
