If you have been hurt on the job, you may qualify for benefits provided by workers’ compensation law. As this video explains, workplace injuries can merit monetary compensation for medical care and other injury-related costs.
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system that allows an injured employee to receive financial reparations without filing a lawsuit against an employer. Negligence is not an issue when claiming workers’ compensation, though it does constitute the employee’s exclusive remedy to his or her injury. This means that the worker will not be able to file a future lawsuit for a workplace injury.

We will file a workers’ compensation claim on your behalf and make sure that you receive the monetary reparations that you deserve.
