San Bernardino Workplace Accident Attorney
Were you injured while at work?
A workplace accident can be caused by any number of factors such as improper training, unsafe workplace conditions and defective equipment. Injuries can be severe, including broken bones, spinal cord trauma,
burns, eye injuries and dismemberment. When someone is injured on the job, a
Worker's Compensation claim is usually filed to receive benefits for medical expenses, lost wages, physical therapy and retraining if you are unable to return to your former job.
Studies show that 4 out of every 100 full-time employees will get injured or sick on the job. Half of these cases will result in time away from work, job transfers or restrictions. Work injuries are also responsible for thousands of fatalities each year, leaving families emotionally devastated and financially distressed. When the accident is the result of third-party negligence, compensation can also be pursued through a personal injury lawsuit. If you have been injured on the job, a San Bernardino personal injury attorney can advise you of your legal rights to compensation and help determine the best course of action for your claim.
