Injured workers are good people that need help in tough financial times. At Davis & Crump we represent employees who are injured on the job in claims for lost wages and medical expenses against private and state employers and their workers’ compensation insurers.
Workers’ Compensation benefits are normally available to employees who suffer an injury that arose in the course and scope of their employment. Benefits are paid by the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance.
IF I AM ENTITLED TO WORKERS’ COMPENSATION, WHY DO I NEED A LAWYER?
It is not always easy to get approval for workers’ compensation benefits, or to be awarded fair compensation. Following an injury, the insurance company may try to settle your claim quickly to minimize costs.
The insurance company has attorneys ready to deal with you and your claim. They are not there to protect your rights, but to protect the rights and profits of the insurance company. Claimants without attorney representation go unprotected through complex, unfamiliar territory.
The right attorney can protect you and help produce an excellent outcome. If you were injured at work, or if a family member was killed, we urge you to call for a free case review.
Our lawyers have practiced workers’ compensation law for over 30 years and know how to protect your rights as an injured employee. We are highly experienced in negotiating and litigating workers’ compensation claims in order to obtain the maximum settlements our clients deserve.
TYPES OF WORKERS’ COMPENSATION CLAIMS
The attorneys at Davis & Crump have a full understanding of what insurance carriers need in the many different types of workers compensation claims. Work related injuries typically covered by workers’ compensation include:
- Neck and Back Injuries
- Orthopedic Injuries
- Neurological Injuries
- Carpal Tunnel
- Repetitive Trauma Injuries
- Hearing Problems
- Eye Injuries
- Work-Related Heart Attack or Stroke
- Occupational Diseases
- Work-Related Asthma
SUCCESSFUL THIRD PARTY WORK INJURY CLAIMS
We also handle “third party” claims against individuals or companies other than your employer that may be responsible for a work-related injury. A third party personal injury case can be brought in addition to a workers’ compensation case.
For example, your employer may hire an independent contractor to carry out certain tasks at your job site. If the independent contractor’s wrongdoing or negligence led to your injury, you have the right to bring a third party liability claim against that contractor.
Unlike a workers’ compensation case, third party actions can include recovery for pain and suffering and future damages, and may far exceed the compensation you receive under workers’ compensation.
