Lawyers Helping Victims Of Workplace Accidents
Protecting Injured Workers
Getting into a serious accident on the job is every worker’s nightmare. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that some industries are so dangerous that as high as 10 percent of workers will lose time on the job over the course of a year because of a work-related accident or job-related disabilities. Under Wisconsin and Minnesota workers’ compensation laws, employers are required to carry workers’ comp insurance to protect injured workers from the devastating financial effects of a serious injury. Unfortunately, employers and insurance carriers often do their best to deny or reduce the full extent of the claim. for workers’ compensation benefits.

Why Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer For A Workplace Injury Claim?
In most cases, injured workers receiving workers’ comp pay under their workers’ compensation coverage forfeit their rights to sue their employer for additional damages. However, third-party claims laws allow the injured worker to sue any other negligent party or parties who may be held liable for causing the accident or injuries. If your injury was the result of someone’s negligence, such as an employer creating an unsafe work environment, one of our personal injury lawyers can help you understand where you may be able to use a personal injury claim to recover additional funds to cover your medical expenses and get help with other bills.
We will investigate your workplace accident to determine whether the property owner, a product manufacturer or subcontractor on-site may be financially responsible for additional compensation. Third-party lawsuits are the only way an injured worker can collect money damages for pain and suffering resulting from the injuries.
