Workplace Accidents

Third Party Claims
Our office frequently pursues personal injury claims that can be filed when a workplace injury is caused by a party besides the injured employee's employer. These are called third party claims. For example, if injured at work while working on a defective piece of equipment, you may have a third party claim.

Protection For Injured Workers
A lot of clients are surprised with how poorly they are treated by their employer once they suffer an injury while on the job. Many injured workers understand that they are not getting treated properly after an injury occurs but they are afraid to take action because they really need the job and do not want to get fired. WE UNDERSTAND THIS. You are not alone. If you get terminated for filing a workers' compensation claim, this is considered wrongful termination and we will not allow your employer to get away with it.
