How Work injury attorneys Can Help

When you suffer an injury at work, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and other losses. However, filing a compensation claim can be a complicated process, and it’s important to have a skilled work injury lawyer on your side to help you navigate the legal system and recover a fair settlement.

At Lem Garcia Law, a workplace injury attorney can:



Guide Your Through the Legal Process

Work injury claims involve complex legal procedures that can be difficult to understand. A work injury lawyer will take the time to explain the legal process so that you know what to expect every step of the way.



Gather and Analyze Evidence

To win a work injury claim, you need to provide evidence that proves that your injury was caused by your work. A work injury lawyer can help you gather evidence such as medical records, video footage, witness statements, and documentation of your work duties and environment.



Negotiate with the Insurance company

In many cases, the insurance company representing your employer may try to offer you a low settlement that doesn’t fully compensate you for your injuries and losses. At our law firm, a work injury lawyer can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure that you receive a fair settlement that covers all of your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.



File a Personal injury Lawsuit

If your work injury claim goes to court, a work injury lawyer can file a personal injury lawsuit and argue your case before a judge and jury. A skilled lawyer knows how to present evidence and argue your case effectively, increasing your chances of winning your case and recovering a fair settlement for your job injury.



Types of Economic and Non-economic damages Available

One of the most critical aspects of a work injury case is determining the types of compensation available to the injured worker. In some states, injured workers may be entitled to several types of financial compensation, including:

  • Emotional and physical pain and suffering
  • Past and future medical treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Emotional distress

In addition to the above-mentioned damages, an injured employee may also be entitled to:

  • Temporary disability benefits
  • Permanent disability benefits
  • Supplemental job displacement benefits

Death benefits
If a worker dies due to a work-related injury or illness, their dependents may be entitled to death benefits. These benefits provide compensation for funeral expenses, burial costs, mental anguish, lost income, and other expenses incurred due to the worker’s death.

At Lem Garcia Law, our personal injury lawyers will fight for your right to non-economic and economic losses, to ensure you’re made whole after you have suffered a workplace injury that was caused by the negligence of your employer or a third party. Our compassionate team understands how devastating suffering a catastrophic injury can be and how it can change your entire life. We will work tirelessly to make it right.



Common Occupational injuries

Minor injuries can heal within a matter of days or weeks, while catastrophic injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury, can require lifelong medical attention.

Below are some of the most common types of work-related injuries the personal injury attorneys at Lem Garcia Law often encounter:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Amputation injury
  • Burn injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Broken bones/bone fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Fatal injuries
  • Back injuries

Statute of limitations for Legal claims

If you have been injured on the job, it is essential to act quickly. State law imposes strict deadlines for filing a workers’ compensation claim, and failure to meet these deadlines can result in the loss of your right to fair compensation.
