Injuries Can Result in Long-Term Pain and Huge Medical Expenses

Let us help you win the maximum compensation allowed by law.


Injuries at Work

 

With all the time a person spends at work, workplace injuries are common. If your injury occurred anytime while working — even if you were on your way to work, on your break, on your way home from work, working at home or on a company trip — you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Too often, employers and their insurance companies don’t tell injured workers their rights. All employees are entitled to benefits for work-related injuries, regardless of the nature of their jobs.

We will negotiate with your employer’s insurance company on your behalf, and even go to trial if necessary, to get you the maximum compensation allowed by law. That includes missed time from work, medical expenses, and compensation for pain and/or disability. In instances of death, the family of the employee may be eligible for compensation.

Injuries in Public Places

 

Injuries can often occur when you are on a property owned by someone else, including businesses, government properties, schools, sidewalks or streets. You may miss time from work or school, and your injury may interfere with your daily living activities. You might also be facing huge medical expenses. We have handled hundreds of these cases.

Oftentimes the business or government owner of the property where the injury occurred will have insurance coverage. The insurance companies make money by compensating you as little as possible for your injuries. They will do whatever it takes to achieve this goal. We will build your case to maximize your compensation under the law. Then we will negotiate with the insurance companies to get you a fair deal. If the insurance companies are not reasonable, we will file a lawsuit and even take your case to trial, if necessary, to win the largest payment allowed by law.

Lead Paint/Lead Exposure

 

Exposure to any type of lead or to paint containing lead can cause long-term illness, intellectual disability and death. Exposure can occur at work, at your home or someone else’s, or in a public place. Just a few ways children and adults can be exposed to lead include: breathing in dust from house paint made before 1978; putting toys manufactured outside of the United State in their mouths; touching objects like jewelry, pottery or art supplies and then putting their fingers in their mouths.

If the lead exposure occurred in the workplace, we will negotiate with your employer’s insurance company on your behalf, and even go to trial if necessary, to get you the maximum compensation allowed by law. That includes missed time from work, medical expenses, and compensation for pain and/or disability. In instances of death, the family of the employee may be eligible for compensation.

For injuries that occurred in at home or in public places (such as a school or governmental building), the owners of the properties will have insurance coverage.
