RI and MA Job Injuries Happen Every Day-and We Fight for the Rights of Injured Workers!
Workplace injuries can be catastrophic or mild, sudden or slowly developing and, at The Law Offices of Deborah G. Kohl, we have handled every type of Work Comp claim case. You may have been injured doing a work task you've been handling just fine for years, such as operating a bulldozer, lifting heavy boxes or replacing old wiring, but suddenly one day you found yourself on the way to the hospital with a severe job injury. Perhaps you were driving the company car as usual, and were hit by a distracted driver-a Work Comp case that requires a third party claim to be filed. Maybe you suffered a construction accident injury, such as a broken back due to falling from up high. You may have been violently assaulted by an inmate at the prison where you work. Or you're an injured longshoreman who was struck by a loading dock crane in the harbor. Our workers' compensation attorneys have taken on every kind of workplace accident you can imagine. We know you work hard and, in turn, we work hard for every client, preparing each case meticulously and thoroughly so we can win a settlement that will allow you to get your life back.
Here are a few examples of the Rhode Island and Massachusetts job accidents that we see frequently:
If you've been hurt on the job, you have the right to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits. But the claims process can be complicated. Employers and insurance companies often challenge claims and may also dispute the extent of your injuries. They have lawyers looking out for their best interests. That's why you need an experienced workers' compensation attorney who will fight for your rights.
Work Accident Victims Need a Compassionate and Fearless Workers' Compensation Attorney
If you suffered an accident on the job, you are probably feeling vulnerable, overwhelmed and in pain. Don't take on the Workers' Compensation application process alone. It'll be your word against the Work Comp insurance adjusters who often pressure workplace injury victims to accept a "low-ball" offer that won't cover medical treatments, lost income, occupational therapy you might need if you can't work. We know Work Comp law and OSHA regulations inside out and, with us by your side, you have a far better chance of obtaining a Work Comp claim settlement that will help you recover physically, emotionally and financially.
We care about our clients and will do all we can to fight for your rights. If you lost a loved one in a job accident death, we will go after Work Comp wrongful death benefits on your behalf.
