An on-the-job injury can be devastating emotionally, economically and physically. A personal injury requires a serious commitment of time and energy to healing in addition to working with an employer and insurer, which can be daunting if not overwhelming.
It is important to realize that in addition to workers' compensation benefits, you may be entitled to an award for pain, suffering and other expenses if a third party demonstrated negligence.
In order to work toward these benefits, however, it is absolutely critical to retain an experienced legal advocate. These cases can be extremely complex, and third parties can put forth an aggressive defense.
