Protecting The Rights Of Workers Who Have Been Injured On The Job
Any job has risks, from construction workers to office workers. These risks can result in injuries that affect a worker’s entire life. Even a minor workplace injury can cause serious injuries that require lifelong medical care. If you have been injured at work, it is important to know your rights and the benefits you may be entitled to.
At Law Offices of Carlson & Johnson LLP, our legal team is dedicated to helping injured workers pursue workers’ compensation benefits after an on-the-job accident. From our offices in Temecula and Santa Ana, our lawyers provide representation and guidance throughout the process to ensure your rights are protected. We have decades of experience in injury cases that we put to work for you.
Confident Handling Of Work Injuries
While personal injury cases are handled with the negligent party and their insurance company, workplace injury cases are handled directly with the employer and their workers’ compensation benefits provider. Our firm can provide you information and education on the process, so you understand what your obligations are and what the possible outcomes can be.
We handle cases involving broken bones or crushed bones, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries that impact your life. These can occur in any accident at work, including:
- Construction accidents
- Ladder and scaffolding collapse
- Falling objects
- Uneven sidewalks
- Neck and back injuries from lifting
- Repetitive stress injuries (such as carpal tunnel)
- Injuries from work vehicle accidents
- Slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls
- Manufacturing equipment injuries
- Safety equipment failure
Long-Term Consequences Of Your Injury
Regardless of the severity of the injury, it may require a great deal of treatment, accommodation and recovery time to get back on your feet. Since your injury was work-related, your employer and your workers’ compensation benefits are responsible for compensating you for all those things. If you require accommodations in the workplace to return to your old job or take on a new role that is better suited to your physical limitations after an injury, your employer will be expected to make those reasonable accommodations.
