Amputation Injury at Work Can Mean You Can't Work Anymore-Let Us Fight For Your Rights!
Some of the most devastating types of workplace injuries are those that result in amputation. A worker's life can change forever in an instant. Workers' compensation benefits are supposed to help, but the claims process can be complicated. The workers' compensation attorneys at The Law Offices of Deborah G. Kohl fight to help injured workers get the benefits they need and deserve.
With so many dangerous professions in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts-from construction work and dockyard jobs to commercial trucking and utility work-it is a harsh reality that we get many calls from workers who lost a limb in a job accident. Construction site 'caught-in, 'caught-under' or 'stuck-between' accidental amputations are some of the most common causes of limb loss injuries at work. These usually occur when a worker is stuck between heavy equipment, such as a bulldozer and a wall, when huge wheels of an 18-wheeler delivery truck run over a carpenter's foot or if a worker falls into hazardous factory machinery. Amputation accidents on the job can happen in any type of situation and all loss of limb victims deserve a tough, trusted Work Comp attorney to fight for their justice!
Recovering workers' compensation benefits following an accident resulting in amputation can be very complicated. That's because there's often a lot of money at stake. Employers and insurance companies can challenge claims. They have lawyers looking out for their best interests. And they're often doing everything they can to deny your claim. That's why you need an experienced workers' compensation attorney fighting for you.
If You Lost a Limb at Work, You Need a Reliable Amputation Attorney
As compassionate, diligent Workers' Compensation lawyers for over 35 years, we have seen many types of workplace amputation tragedies-travelers have lost a leg in work-related car accidents, roofers have lost a hand in falls from heights, industrial warehouse inventory stockers have lost an arm in forklift accidents, and restaurant workers have lost fingers in meat grinders. At-work amputation accidents can mean a future of hardship and possibly never being able to work again. Workers who have lost a leg or had their arm cut off in an accident often need to be fitted with a prosthetic limb, such as a prosthetic arm, leg, foot or a hook hand. They may never walk again and need to use a wheel chair, a cane or crutches to get around. Occupational therapy is nearly always a given, and can be extremely costly. Workers' Compensation benefits will help pay for these and other medical bills, along with lost wages if you can't return to work.
