Who We Are
Workers’ Compensation Attorney is a law firm that specializes in workers’ compensation cases. This is significant because these types of cases tend to be very complex as there are various federal and state laws that can come into play. Furthermore, the success of these kinds of cases also depends on your legal team’s ability to navigate the ins and outs of the court or settlement proceedings. Luckily for you, Workers’ Compensation Attorney has the requisite know-how and experience to fight on your behalf.
What Is Workers’ Compensation?
As part of the contract you enter into with your employer upon your hiring, you are expected to perform your professional duties and they are expected to maintain a baseline level of safety and care per state safety regulations. If they fail to do so, then they are considered to be negligent and responsible for your injury.
As a result, workers’ compensation provides financial remuneration to employees who have been injured or fallen ill “in the course and scope” of their professional duties. It can also pay death benefits to the families of workers who were killed on the job.
