Helping You Get Compensation For Your Work Injury
Injuries at work can occur at any time and without warning. Afterward, you may be wondering how you will move forward and what to do next. An experienced attorney can provide you with the insight and guidance you need to get the compensation you deserve.
At VanMeveren Law Group, we use our knowledge of workplace injuries to help our clients cope financially with the impact of their injuries. Many on-the-job injuries qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. When workers’ comp does not provide the full amount that you need, our firm can assist in seeking compensation through a third-party personal injury claim.
Compensation For Your Injuries
Workers’ compensation through your employer provides benefits such as disability pay and medical care. However, workers’ comp typically replaces only about two-thirds of income and does not provide for damages such as pain and suffering. A personal injury claim allows you to collect compensation for everything you have lost. It can help provide your family with a secure financial future.
While you typically cannot take action against your employer for a workplace accident, it may be possible to file a claim against any third parties responsible for your injury. A third party is someone who does not work for your employer. Some third parties include drivers in car accidents, suppliers, vendors, contractors, equipment manufacturers and others.
Types Of Workplace Accidents
We provide representation to clients who have suffered injuries in a wide range of industries, including:
- Construction accidents: Construction sites are hazardous and can be the scene of serious accidents. We represent construction workers and other workers who have been injured on a construction job site.
- Oil field injuries: Oil rigs are extremely complex machines. Any issues can result in injuries to the highly trained workers who operate them and those who work in the oil fields. We work with oil field workers after they have suffered an oil field-related injury.
- Other on-the-job accidents: If you have been injured in another type of workplace accident in an office, while driving a work vehicle or other situations, talk to us to discuss how we can help you.
