Workplace injuries are far more common in certain types of settings. For example, injuries on construction sites or in manufacturing plants are not entirely unexpected given the type of work being performed. In other cases, however, on-the-job injuries simply arise unexpectedly, including when shelves fall on employees or products used in the course of work malfunction.

Following a workplace accident resulting in serious injuries, you will be eligible to recover workers’ compensation disability benefits. These benefits will help cover your lost wages and any medical expenses, without the need to establish fault or negligence on the part of your employer.
In addition, if your workplace injuries are caused by the negligence of a third-party — such as a car accident while you are driving for work — you may have a separate personal injury claim. In the event that your workplace accident results in long-term injuries that prevent you from working, you may also be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
As experienced lawyers, we look at all potential sources of liability and pursue all available sources of compensation. If you have questions following an accident at work, please contact us today for a confidential consultation and free case evaluation.
