The assistance you need after a workplace injury
If you were injured at work or while performing an on-the-job task, you should be entitled to benefits through your employer’s workers compensation insurance. This compensation may cover expenses related to medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages or salary, and retraining. If a loved one died in a workplace accident, your family may be able to recover damages.
Your employer or your employer’s insurance company may attempt to deny your claim or minimize the amount of compensation you receive. A skilled attorney helps you prepare a claim that gives you the best chance at approval and assists with the appeals process if you don’t get the results you need and deserve.
Personal injury and Social Security Disability claims
The Law Offices of Charles Garganese, Jr., LLC provides sound legal guidance to individuals who need to seek compensation from negligent parties after a personal injury. We thoroughly examine the circumstances of your accident, working to determine fault and following through with dependable representation as you file a personal injury claim. Some of the most common injuries we see stem from car accidents, slips and falls, and dangerous products.
In addition, our experienced team helps with the complex Social Security Disability (SSD) process. SSD offers an important safety net for people with disabilities. It can provide much-needed benefits that help to support you financially as you deal with a serious injury or medical condition that prevents you from working and earning a living for you and your loved ones.
Personal injury claims related to work accidents
Certain situations may require you to file for workers compensation benefits and to also pursue damages through a personal injury lawsuit. For example this may be the case if you were making a delivery as part of your job duties, and another party injured you in an auto accident. Although your employer’s workers compensation insurance may cover some of your expenses, you may be able to obtain additional compensation through a personal injury claim for the pain and suffering you endured.
