Taking action after a workplace accident

Many residents in West Virginia will work a good portion of their life. But when a workplace accident occurs, it not only impacts their ability to work but could also make it difficult to carry on and live a normal life. Our law firm understands how the lives of an injured worker and their loved ones could be seriously altered following a workplace accident. Moreover, our attorneys understand the importance of filing a workers' compensation claim in order to recover benefits necessary for their recovery.

Whether an employee suffers a back or neck injury, hearing loss, an occupational disease, carpal tunnel syndrome or other work-related injuries, diseases or aliments, it is crucial that they are aware of their rights and legal remedies. A work injury or occupational disease could significantly impact their ability to work and even function in their everyday life, and they may be burdened with severe financial losses in the form of medical expenses and lost wages.

When an employee is injured on-the-job or suffers an occupational disease or illness, he or she could incur other damages in addition to medical expenses and lost wages. Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the workers' compensation claims process and the importance of making a timely filing. In order to reduce the negative impact of a work injury, employees should take appropriate action following an incident in the work environment.

Whether it is due to the negligence of an employer or not, it is important that employees understand the benefits they are entitled to when they are temporarily or permanently unable to work due to a work injury or illness. Our law firm's workers' compensation overview could help employees better understand their options and rights. By taking legal action, those harmed in their place of employment may be able to recover the compensation they need to regain their health and get back to work.
