How to Seek Compensation for Your Workplace Injury

According to the National Safety Council, an on-the-job injury occurs every seven seconds and accidents are especially prevalent among:

  • Public service officials
  • Truck drivers
  • Manufacturers
  • Home service specialists
  • And construction workers

Many times, and in any industry, a worker cannot afford to take time off work to properly recover which is why it is vital they seek the financial help they need during these difficult times.

While workers’ compensation laws are in place to help, the negligent actions of a company or manufacturer may require a third-party claim to get you the help you need.

In any case, insurance companies will not have a workers’ best interests at heart, and many seek to lowball or deny injury claims. Our Oakland workers’ comp attorney will fight for your right to full and fair compensation.

What Are Common Workplace Accident Causes & Injuries?

Common causes of injury include:

  • Repetitive motion strain and wear
  • Accidents involving heavy machinery
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Car and truck accidents

The above, and much more, can cause painful sprains, cuts, and bruising.

In serious cases, limbs may be crushed or amputated, bones may be broken, and victims may experience short or long-term effects that may even prevent them from ever returning to the work or lifestyle they once knew. Workplace accidents may even lead to wrongful death.
