In general, the exclusive remedy of an employee injured in the workplace is under
workers' compensation laws. When a person is injured at work it can be one of the most frustrating and difficult experiences
in the law. If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to certain benefits. Workers' compensation laws represent
a trade-off of sorts for the employee: the employee receives compensation for any employment-related injury regardless of
fault, but the nature and extent of benefits is limited. These laws also represent a similar trade-off for employers: the
employer is liable for some benefits in nearly every case of workplace injury, but this liability is limited, even in cases
of employer fault. The risk of workplace injury thus becomes a cost of doing business.
Our firm represents workers who are injured on the job in claims for lost wages and
medical treatment expenses against private industry, federal, and state and local government employers and their workers'
compensation insurers. We also handle issues dealing with defenses, fraud, subrogation, and appeals.
