Each year, thousands of employees are seriously injured or killed on the job. These catastrophes occur even though the Federal and State regulations require employers to implement and maintain safety measures and safety equipment. Workers’ compensation laws are established to provide a variety of benefits to injured employees. These benefits include among other things medical payments and lost wages to the injured employee or their family and dependents.
Our attorneys represent employees who have sustained a variety of injuries such as back injuries with and without surgeries, hip injuries and surgery, and injuries to other body parts such as arms and hands, legs, and eyes. In addition, we represent individuals seeking workers’ compensation for heart and hypertension claims.
A workers’ compensation attorney is needed to fight for your rights. In addition, the benefits are often inadequate to fairly compensate the individual for the injuries and damages sustained in the workplace accident. In order to receive additional damages beyond those provided under workers’ compensation laws, employees must file separate claims or lawsuits against any responsible parties other than their employer.
If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a workplace accident or killed on the job, the attorneys at Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey would like to help you.
