Work Injury Claims

Most commonly, the victim in a work injury seeks compensation from an employer’s worker’s compensation insurance rather than the employer themselves. Employers in most states are required to ensure their employees to protect the business assets. The insurance can transfer risk and litigation expenses from the employer to the insurance company.

After an injury, injured workers are often required to file a claim describing their injuries and seek medical attention. In the case of a most work-related injuries, the insurance company will offer a settlement to cover medical expenses and time off work. We can help get you a more favorable settlement.
