Workers' Compensation Lawyers
Workplace accidents occur every day and are commonly caused by unsafe working environments, faulty equipment or employer negligence. If you or a loved one have been injured at work, denied workers compensation for an injury, or have been fired as a result of taking time off because of a work-related injury, the lawyers at Warren & Griffin might be able to help you receive additional compensation for your medical bills and lost wages.
What Qualifies as a Work-Related Injury?
Workplace injuries can be as minor as small bruises and sprains or as serious as brain and spinal injuries that can result in a lifelong disability. Here are some types of work-related injuries that our attorneys have experience handling and that commonly qualify our clients to receive a workers compensation settlement:
- Neck, shoulder, back or knee injuries, regardless of severity
- Vision loss or hearing loss (total or partial)
- Breathing problems from exposure to chemicals or toxic materials
- Bruises, sprains, lacerations and scrapes
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Broken, fractured or dislocated bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
What Type of Compensation Can I Receive?
After Warren & Griffin settle a workers compensation case, our clients can receive settlements in many different forms and for different amounts of time. The primary purpose of these settlements is to cover the cost of your medical expenses that were a direct result of your work-related injury and to reimburse you for wages that were lost while you were recovering from your injuries. The most common types of workers compensation settlements are:
- Temporary or short-term disability payments
- Permanent or long-term disability payments
- Lump sum settlements
- Medical care
- Mileage to and from medical care appointments
