You expect to work hard and you are willing to exchange your time for a fair wage that allows you to put a roof over your head and keep food on your table.

There is no one job or industry that we focus on, as we have seen that everyone from receptionists to truck drivers can suffer injuries on the job that leave them in need of workers’ compensation or disability benefits. Whether you are filing papers in a climate-controlled office, operating a forklift in a warehouse, or driving loads between the Leinenkugel’s Brewery and distribution centers, you are not immune from the possibility of injury or illness.
Third-Party Personal Injury Claims
It’s not enough to have the assistance of a workers’ compensation lawyer after a workplace accident. You need a lawyer who is well-versed in workers’ compensation and personal injury to ensure you maximize the resources available to you. For example, if you were injured while driving a car during your shift, you may have a workers’ compensation claim as well as a personal injury claim to be made against the party responsible for the car accident. This can provide you with compensation for your pain and suffering and other noneconomic damages in addition to the workers’ compensation benefits that cover your medical expenses and lost wages.
