Columbia Work Injury Lawyer

Workers in all industry types are susceptible to injuries in the workplace. If and when an injury on the job occurs, the injured worker is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Marc Brown is an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who can help you to navigate the claims process and recover the compensation you’re owed. Contact our law firm today to learn more about how we can help.

Common Types Of Workplace Accidents

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), a worker is injured on the job somewhere in the United States once every seven seconds. Some of the top types of worker injuries and accidents include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Repetitive movement injuries
  • Soreness or pain
  • Cuts, lacerations, and punctures
  • Overexertion injuries
  • Contact with objects and equipment
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Knee injuries

Construction Worker Injuries

Construction workers are at an increased risk of injury compared to workers in other industries. The four most common sources of injury and death in construction jobs are falls, caught-in/between accidents, electrocution, and struck-by-object accidents, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

What To Do After A Workplace Injury

After a worker is involved in an on-the-job accident, it’s important that they report the accident to their supervisor and ask for medical care for their injuries right away. Failure to provide an employer with a notice of the injury within the required time frame (within 90 days) can be a bar to a claim for workers’ compensation benefits.

Once an employer has been provided with notice of a worker’s injury, the claims process should be initiated by the employer, who has the responsibility of reporting your accident to the insurer. Through workers’ compensation insurance, an injured worker can receive coverage for the full value of all necessary and reasonable medical expenses, as well as a portion of their lost wages should the injury result in more than seven days of missed work. The injured worker is also entitled to additional compensation if they receive a permanent impairment or disability rating related to the work injury.

How An Attorney Can Help

Suffering a work injury can be terrifying, especially if your injuries are serious. While you may assume that you are covered under workers’ compensation insurance and therefore have nothing to worry about, don’t be so sure. Your employer may deny your claim, or an insurance company may offer you less than you deserve.

The best way to protect your right to your full benefit amount is to work with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney like Marc Brown. Attorney Marc Brown knows the law and what steps you need to take to pursue your claim. He can negotiate on your behalf and represent you should your case require litigation.
