Industrial Worker Accidents Attorneys
We Fight for the Rights of Injured Workers
Industrial accidents that occur in the workplace can cause devastating and catastrophic injuries. Industrial workers who suffer serious injuries on the job can be left with expensive medical bills and might need to take time away from work to recover.
California has labor laws that protect the rights of injured industrial workers and allows them to collect workers’ compensation benefits when they are injured during the course of their employment. Workers’ compensation benefits can be used to cover the following things:
- Medical Bills
- Lost Wages From Missed Work
- Rehabilitative Treatments
- Vocational Retraining
Although injured industrial workers have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim, securing benefits can be a difficult task without the help of an experienced lawyer. In some cases, the injured worker’s employer will try to deny their injury claim. When this occurs, it can end up taking years for the workers’ comp case to be resolved.
An experienced attorney who is familiar with workers’ comp law can assist with your workers’ comp case and can also determine if your particular injury qualifies for additional forms of compensation. At Ufkes & Bright, our legal team is dedicated to helping industrial workers who have suffered serious injuries at work. We will review the details of your injury and we will aggressively pursue the maximum amount of compensation that you are entitled to.
If you are an industrial worker who has been injured in a workplace accident caused by a third party, you might be eligible to file a personal injury claim in addition to a workers’ compensation claim. Lawsuits filed against a third-party can result in similar forms of compensation as a workers’ comp claim. However, with a personal injury claim, you can file for additional damages, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of consortium.
