If you or a family member has suffered a workplace injury, contact one of Chinigo, Leone & Maruzo’s skilled and experienced workers’ compensation lawyers.
Workers’ compensation is a benefit system to help injured workers receive compensation for their injuries and return to their jobs as soon as possible. Injured employees are eligible for workers’ compensation if they are injured on the job or while performing normal job duties. Fault is not considered. Workers’ compensation protects workers by providing for their medical expenses and lost wages. Employees who accept workers’ compensation benefits generally cannot sue their employer, although in some cases, a suit may be brought against a third party. If you believe that you have been wrongfully denied workers’ compensation benefits, contact our office today for a free consultation.
Both accidents and regular job duties can cause work-related injuries. An industrial worker injured in a mechanical accident is an example of the former, while an executive whose work stress levels contribute to a heart attack falls under the latter category.
