When Do You Need a Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
Workers’ compensation cases happen when an individual has suffered an injury at work. There are so many ways this occurs, yet people do not realize there are benefits available to them covered by workers’ compensation insurance policies, which all employers are required to maintain. An employer may not retaliate against an employee for submitting a workers’ compensation claim and can continue to work for the company before, after, and during submission. Consult Irene Shor, Esq. a workers’ compensation attorney in Monmouth County, if you think you have a case.
Examples of injuries people sustain at work are back injuries as a result of lifting things or falling, carpal tunnel syndrome from repetitive motions, being involved in a car accident when driving from one location to another during the workday, etc. The compensation for work-related injuries is deemed appropriate by statute and is there to protect employees. Attorney’s fees are paid on a contingency basis, so if you do not collect an award, your lawyer does not have to be paid.
Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation Law
Personal injury lawsuits are appropriate when a third party causes you to suffer an injury. This may be through negligence or an intentional act. These include but are not limited to car accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog bite cases, and many more. A personal injury attorney only collects a fee if you collect an award.
