Work-related injuries and illnesses can cost you your livelihood as well as causing permanent disability and significantly reduced quality of life. At the very least, you may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits, but in many cases you can recover much greater compensation for your injuries through a work injury lawsuit. The experienced work injury lawsuit attorneys listed in the website are here to help you and your family today.
If your work injuries are keeping you from earning a living, that may be enough incentive for you to get started today, so you can collect compensation as soon as possible. But, there are some other very important reasons to get started right away.
You may be facing some very tight deadlines. If you are filing for Workers’ Compensation you have very little time to get started. You will typically have more time to file your work injury lawsuit but it is still subject to the statute of limitations. If the statute of limitations runs out before you file your lawsuit you will be barred from suing. If you must sue a government entity, you have a very limited amount of time to file a notice of intent to sue.
If you are facing a pile of medical bills and are unable to work, you may think that hiring an attorney is not a realistic prospect. The truth is, in most cases your work injury lawyer will handle your case in a contingency fee basis. That means you will not be asked to pay a retainer or any up-front fees. You only incur attorney’s fee if you recover monetary compensation, and instead of hourly fees it will be a percentage of your recovery.
If you or someone you love has suffered a work-related injury or illness, please search our database of lawyers to be connected with an experienced work injury lawsuit attorney in your area. The initial consultation with a work injury lawyer is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, in most cases we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In many cases, a personal injury lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations. Please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
