Millions of employees are injured at work each year and thousands of work accidents result in serious injuries and death. Employees who are injured at work are entitled to compensation for their injuries. In death cases, families may be entitled to compensation. Depending upon the circumstances of the injury, injured employees may be entitled to compensation through either the workers' compensation system, or a personal injury lawsuit, or both.
Employees who have suffered a work injury should seek the advice of a law firm that is well-recognized for its experience and expertise in injury cases. It is important that the firm has the resources and knowledge required to identify and litigate all of the available claims to help ensure that the worker receives the optimum compensation and benefits to which he or she is entitled.
