When you are hurt while performing your duties as an employee there is a specialized area of legislation that governs from whom and how much you can recover. This differs from other types of injuries. We are devoted to assisting our clients in working through this complicated area of law in order to receive a fair settlement from all possible sources. The issues that arise most often in these matters are:
Whether you were an employee at the time of the injury.
Was the injury received while you were on the job?
Was there an injury?
What benefits are you entitled to?
Was the injury permanent?
Are you entitled to a settlement?
Should you accept a settlement?
