What Should You Do After Being Injured At Work?
After you suffer a personal injury on the job, timing is often crucial when you try to assert your rights to workers’ compensation benefits. The medical evaluation and care that you receive also makes a difference.
To ensure that you receive that maximum financial relief that you are entitled to after a workplace accidental injury, you are strongly encouraged to discuss your case with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. With the advice, guidance and representation of a lawyer who has successfully handled many similar workplace injury claims, your chances of success are most likely much higher.

Is There A Third-Party Liability Claim In Your Workplace Injury Case?
Attorney Charles Brower evaluates every work injury case with the possibility in mind that a third-party liability claim may exist in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. Third- party liability may apply when a personal injury on the job was caused by a dangerous or defective product or a motor vehicle accident involving a subcontractor, for example. In such cases, the equipment manufacturer or the driver of the forklift or delivery truck may be legally responsible.
If there is a third-party liability claim, you may be entitled to receive compensation for pain and suffering – going beyond the medical expenses and prorated lost wage compensation that workers’ compensation insurance may cover.
