Lost Wages: This will include wages that you have lost in the past as the result of the accident, wages that you are losing at the present time and wages which you reasonably can anticipate losing in the future. We often employ a vocational assessor or economist to assist us in pursuing your claim for lost wages.
Medical Expenses: You are entitled to compensation for your past and future medical expenses. Our team of workplace accident lawyers are familiar with coordinating benefits and care among the various insurance companies that may be involved, including your health insurance carrier, Medicare, and the liability carrier of your employer.

EXPERIENCED WORKPLACE ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Proving fault and loss arising our of a workplace accident can be difficult. Our workplace accident lawyers regularly work with experts in engineering, product design, workplace safety, and product manufacturing to uncover an act of negligence on the part of a product manufacturer or employer. We will also work very closely with your treating doctors in proving the nature and scope of your injury.
Our lawyers are dedicated to protecting the rights of the injured, and their families, and have obtained many favorable settlements for injury victims. Workplace accident cases are accepted on a contingency basis, so you pay no fee unless we make a recovery on your behalf.
COORDINATION WITH WORKERS’ COMPENSATION BENEFITS
Workers’ compensation benefits are limited in scope and can be quite nominal when compared to the amount you could recover in a negligence action. Our workplace accident attorneys help clients pursue claims for serious workplace injuries and will recover the maximum compensation against negligent contractors, sub-contractors, associated groups, or manufacturers.
