Common Workplace Injuries
Our work site injury lawyers understand that serious work injuries can be very expensive, and, depending on severity, can take months to rehabilitate. The most serious ones include back and head injuries, broken bones, dismemberment, cuts and lacerations, severed nerves, spinal cord injuries, burns, dislocated bones, torn ligaments, and loss of hearing or sight.
If you sustain any of these, a workers’ compensation attorney from CWC can meet with you to discuss the extent of your injuries, as well as how the claims adjuster may approach your claim.
Types of Benefits
Let our reputable personal injury attorneys help protect your rights. Together, we can work toward possible compensation and benefits that include:
- Medical benefits
- Temporary or permanent disability benefits
- Supplemental job displacement benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Death benefits (for those who have lost a family member in a work accident)
These are most often paid through a settlement agreed upon by both parties outside of court, and approved by a judge. Depending on the type of settlement, you may receive a lump sum that releases your right to future benefits, or receive benefits for a certain time, until an agreed upon termination date.
