Criminal defense cases cover both criminal suits — charges brought by the government to punish an individual for an act classified as a crime — and civil suits — claims brought by individuals or organizations as a dispute over rights and duties.
Most worksites are inherently dangerous, and serious work injuries are common. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system that provides benefits to employees who are injured or become ill on the job regardless of liability. These benefits can include medical expenses, lost wages, and disability benefits. In addition, because job sites often involve multiple companies and subcontractors, an employee injured on a worksite oftentimes also has a third-party liability claim in addition to their workers’ compensation claim.
If you have sustained a serious injury on a worksite, make sure to speak with a local attorney who is knowledgeable and familiar with both work comp claims as well as personal injury claims.
