Work Related Accidents
In the United States, 6,023 workers died as a result of work-related injuries in 1999. When you are injured on the job, you experience pain and suffering from the injury itself, and potentially high medical bills, lost wages, loss of ability to return to work and in very severe cases, loss of life as well. The questions often asked are: Who is responsible? What forms of compensation may be available? How can I access them?
In most states, workers injured on the job may seek compensation through the state's Worker's Compensation Act. In states that don't have a Worker's Compensation Act, an individual may consider pursuing a civil suit. At the Burn Injury Law Group we will work with you to assess the best course of action to take based on the specific details surrounding your injury.
