Injuries Sustained on the Job

Many injuries at work result in a claim or lawsuit against another company, or person. Although you usually cannot sue your own employer, others may be legally at fault for your injuries, such as another car owner or a driver, a building owner or general contractors at a construction site. If you are injured on the job, you may be entitled to Workers Compensation for time that you have missed from work, and for payment of your medical bills. The legal staff at The Law Offices of Michael S Bender is well-versed in the procedures, rules and guidelines of filing a Workers Compensation claim, and will advocate strongly on your behalf to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of benefits under the law. From designating the seriousness of your injuries to preparing you for and representing you at Board hearings, The Law Offices of Michael S Bender will be there to assert the strongest case possible on your behalf so that you can provide for yourself and your family while you are recovering from your work-related injuries.
