Often, Workers’ Compensation benefits are simply not enough. The workplace injury attorneys at Hewitt & Salvatore, PLLC stand up for injury victims who feel an employer or third party is to blame for their accident. If an employer cuts corners and you end up injured because of it, the employer may be held legally (and financially) responsible for the accident. (For instance, an employer who failed to follow government-mandated safety standards or skipped a required risk assessment may be held accountable.)
With the right legal guidance, you may be entitled to collect money for current and future medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income, loss of future earnings, and others. For victims who are unable to return to the same profession due to a permanent disability, funds may also be collected for job retraining education and related expenses.
