If you have been injured on the job — whether on a construction site, factory floor, or any other location — you may be entitled to bring a claim or lawsuit to recover additional and significant compensation for your pain and suffering in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits you may receive.
Other subcontractors and the general contractor on the job site may be liable for your injuries. Worker compensation laws allow for very basic compensation to an injured worker but do not provide compensation for the effects of an injury on a worker, often referred to pain and suffering or non-economic damages, or impairment in future earning capacity.
A personal injury claim is intended to provide the additional monetary compensation needed to cover all losses suffered due to the negligence of others on the job site, including damages for pain and suffering, compensation for your medical bills (past and future), rehabilitation and lost wages (past and future).
Injuries due to design defects and/or manufacturing defects involving:
- heavy equipment such as machines, cars, and trucks
- consumer products
- toxic materials cases (commonly called toxic torts) involving products that have been proven to cause cancer. Examples are mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure, ovarian cancer as the result of talcum powder use, and benzene which can also cause cancer.
Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA)
The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) is a special law that covers injured railroad workers. Unlike workers’ compensation, FELA claims are fault-based, meaning that you must prove negligence on the part of your employer. To receive all of the benefits you deserve, you will likely need a lawyer’s assistance.
FELA covers many types of damages that workers’ compensation will not cover. For example, workers’ compensation does not offer full wage replacement benefits or any compensation for damages such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of household services. Your right of recovery under FELA is limited only by the extent of your injury.
Unfortunately, some employers will try to limit their potential liability. Within a sort time after you're injured, you may be contacted by a claims agent who will try to gather the information that is favorable for the train company and unfavorable for your case.
For example, the claims agent may try to shift blame for the accident from the railroad company to you. Any statements you make to the claims agent could be used to hurt your case.
To protect your rights to full compensation you should contact an attorney as soon as possible after the accident.
Social Security Disability
When you become seriously ill or injured, your entire life may be turned upside down. In addition to physical or emotional pain, many times you will have medical expenses, unpaid bills, and other financial issues that you need to take care of. In these situations, an experienced lawyer can help you receive financial compensation for your injuries or illness and help you apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) if you are unable to work.
Medical malpractice is when a doctor makes a mistake that causes you or a loved one serious harm. Legally, medical malpractice has occurred when a doctor fails to comply with a reasonable standard of care. When someone who is not a doctor makes a mistake, he or she is often said to have acted negligently. Malpractice is simply negligence applied to healthcare professionals. Tragically, a doctor’s mistake can have severe, or even deadly, consequences for a trusting patient.
Medical mistakes may lead to injury or death. We can help your family get answers and help.
