Employees are often forced to miss work because of on the job injuries.
Back injuries can be the result of lifting or moving heavy objects. Some
physical work can cause
soft tissue injuries. A large number of work related accidents are
construction accidents, as the workers face daily hazards on a construction site that can easily
lead to dangerous injuries even when safety procedures are in place. If
an employee is injured in a
car accident while working this job-related injury requires legal representation to
seek compensation for damages for the injured victim. The financial and
emotional strain can be enormous if an employee is unable to return to work.
If you have been injured on the job you need legal advice. No-fault worker's compensation is mandatory for employers in the state and is set up to cover an employee for costs of medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation and death benefits in the event of a job-related fatality. Often the compensation is not sufficient to cover expenses and make up for loss of wages. Do not sign any settlement before you speak to a personal injury lawyer. You need to ensure that you do not forfeit your right to sue the responsible party for your injury.
In many such cases, a third party may be part of the lawsuit filed on behalf of the injured, such as when equipment fails or other sudden unexpected accident.
