If you were injured on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation.

What Types of Cases Are Eligible?
The most common types of workers’ comp cases involve overexertion, slips or falls, being struck by an object and being injured while operating machinery. However, there are many other types of injuries that can qualify a worker for workers’ compensation.
In general, if you were injured at work and need medical treatment or if your injury results in you missing work, you should consult with a workers comp lawyer about whether or not you should file a claim.
What Benefits Can a Workers’ Comp Lawyer Get You?
Settlements for workers’ comp cases usually include payment for medical expenses such as doctor’s visits, surgeries, or prescription drugs as well as replacement income for the time you spent unable to work.
