Workers' Compensation Lawyer in Beckley, West Virginia
Workplace Accidents and Mandolidis Claims
When you suffer an injury on the job, you are entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits and, in some cases, you may be able to pursue legal action against equipment manufacturers or other parties if defective equipment contributed to your injuries.
In addition, West Virginia is one of only five states that allow you to seek personal injury damages against your employer if you were forced to work in clearly unsafe working conditions and your employer took no action to correct the issue. We refer to these as deliberate intent or Mandolidis claims.
These cases tend to be very complex matters that require the attention of an experienced personal injury lawyer. At the Beckley, West Virginia-based Law Office of Stephen P. New, we have extensive experience helping clients obtain fair compensation for the injuries they have suffered in workplace accidents:
- Hearing loss
- Slip and falls
- Construction accidents
- Coal mining accidents
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Wrongful death
Protecting Your Rights in Work Accident Cases
Founding attorney Stephen New grew up in a mining family. His father worked in the coal mines and Stephen worked summers in the mines during his college years. He has seen firsthand the types of injuries that can happen on the job and the lifelong effects that some of them can have. He works tirelessly to see that his clients receive maximum compensation for their work injuries and that all responsible parties are held accountable.
Pursuing any type of workplace accident claim against your employer can be an uncomfortable experience. We understand that you don't want to jeopardize your future with the company. But you have rights under the law, and we will fight aggressively to protect them. If your employer attempts to terminate your employment after you have filed a workers' compensation or deliberate intent claim, we will fight to stop any discrimination against you.
