WORKERS' COMPENSATION LAWYER
When an employee is injured on the job, our firm helps them navigate through the complex workers' compensation system to be sure they receive the benefits they are entitled to.
What is the Workers' Compensation System?
Every employee is normally protected under workers' compensation laws, no matter what your career may be. The workers' compensation system is designed to quickly compensate employees when they are injured during working hours. It is important to note that filing a workers' compensation claim is not a "lawsuit" against your employer. In fact, the law does not allow an employee to sue their employer for negligence. Every employer is required to have workers' compensation insurance to protect employees in the event they are injured while working. Every work injury is covered under workers' compensation law, even if the injury was your own fault.
