According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there were 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses among private industry employers. This number remained unchanged from the previous year and was the first year since 2012 that it did not decline. These injuries and illnesses come with a hefty price tag to the injured workers.
If you were recently injured on the job, your employer and their insurance company are likely hoping you will simply pay for your own injuries. The last thing they want to do is pay for your claim or pay what is fair for your claim as it impacts their bottom line. As such, many injured workers will hire well-versed Cicero work injury lawyers to help them get a fair payment for their injuries.
While injured workers are not required to be represented by a work injury attorney, it is usually beneficial to secure this type of representation. Being injured at work involves many complicated issues and comes with the risk of not receiving the benefits you deserve. It is in your best interest to hire an attorney to handle your claim. In general, injured workers who have legal representation get more for their claims than those who do not.
In addition to a workers’ compensation claim, you may also have a personal injury claim against a third party. Your lawyer can also represent you in this type of claim to maximize your potential compensation. Payments for workers’ compensation usually come much quicker and can be used to pay your medical bills or used towards your other immediate financial needs. In very specific cases, a personal injury claim for third-party liability could help ensure that you get full compensation for your injuries.
Cicero work injury lawyers can assist with any type of work injury. Work injuries are common in specific industries such as construction, or those that involve the use of heavy machinery. They can also occur in other areas such as grocery stores, schools, offices, and gyms. Common workplace injuries include:
Sustaining a workplace injury can be a traumatic experience that leads to a loss of income and ongoing medical bills. No matter where you work, you deserve compensation for your injuries. When you hire skilled Cicero work injury attorneys, you have someone on your side who will make it their goal to get you a fair settlement. Your attorney can manage your claim and all of its requirements while you focus on healing and getting back to normal.
