Industrial Accidents - Know Your Rights


Industrial Worker

Most industrial employees realize that if they are hurt on the job for any reason, they are eligible to receive workers' compensation benefits, which pay for their accident-related medical expenses and also provide disability benefits during the period of time they are out of work.
However, many employees do not realize that if the accident which resulted in their injuries was caused by someone other than their employer or co-employees (i.e. a third party), they also have rights against such third parties in addition to the rights which they have under the workers' compensation laws. Workers' compensation benefits rarely provide injured employees with full compensation for their accidental work injury.  The firm's Personal Injury Team handles third-party claims wherein we seek full compensation for injured employees in claims against the third parties who are responsible for the happening of their accident.
