In the United States, The National Safety Council (NSC) reports that a worker is injured on the job every seven seconds, which equals almost 4,600,000 work-related injuries every year. Clearly, worker safety standards are frequently disregarded or overlooked.
Common causes of workplace injuries include (but are not limited to):
- Obstructed walkways and exits
- Lack of training or instruction
- Poorly maintained equipment or total equipment failure
- Employer failure to adhere to limits, standards and restrictions
- Safety violations
- Missing or obstructed signage
- Negligent or incompetent employees
Workers’ Comp is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees who have sustained a debilitating injury in the workplace or fallen ill beyond their capacity to work.
Workers’ Comp effectively does three things: covers loss of wages stemming from work-related injuries or illnesses, maintains compliance with state regulations, and protects employers/businesses from lawsuits.
Workers’ Comp provides the following types of benefits:
- Medical treatment
- Temporary disability payments
- Permanent disability payments
- Lump sum payment options
Virtually every occupation comes with some risk of injury, with the highest rates coming from the industries of service (police and firefighters), transportation/shipping, manufacturing/production, and construction. No matter the nature of the accident, whether an employee was injured driving, working with hazardous materials, or any other instance, The Whisler Law Firm will fight for the maximum amount of compensation for your damages. Our team of expert attorneys will first evaluate the strength of your claim then work diligently to gather evidence in support of your claim.
Examples of such evidence include:
- Video surveillance of the accident
- Photo evidence
- A police report
- Witness testimony
- Relevant insurance information
- An illustration and timelines of the events leading to the accident
