The Many Types Of Job Injuries And Your Right To Workers’ Compensation
There are as many different kinds of worker injuries as there are parts of the human body. Severe accidents on the job can damage an employee’s core, extremities, internal organs and mental state. Problems ranging from soft-tissue injuries to those caused by repetitive stress and “continuous trauma” to stroke and heart attack can disable a worker temporarily or long term.
If you or a loved one is sidelined from employment by an injury and you need workers’ compensation benefits as soon as possible, I, attorney Howard J. Stevens, am on your side. When an insurer wants to shortchange you with the bare minimum of benefits, I know where the benefits are buried – and how to make them available to you.
Sudden And Long-Term Injuries In The Workplace
At my firm, the Law Office of Howard J. Stevens, APC, I frequently work with clients who have suffered sudden accidents while on the job, including:
- Falls from heights, ladders, roofs or scaffolding
- Burns from hot engines, boilers, ovens, liquids or fire
- Crushing accidents, such as those involving heavy machinery or those requiring amputation
- Severe cuts and disfigurement
- Trucking accidents
- Hypothermia or heat exhaustion
In addition, I help clients who face work injuries that developed gradually over several months or years on the job, such as:
- Toxic chemical and asbestos exposure
- High blood pressure and heart disease
- Hearing or vision loss
- Repetitive injuries due to stress
I have served San Diego County clients for 40 years and aggressively advocate for your right to pursue workers’ comp benefits. I fight for the your full range of financial needs, including lost wages, medical expenses and any setbacks associated with disability. You will be coordinating closely with me, a lawyer with a background in employer/insurance defense that can work to your advantage.
Helping You Recover The Compensation You Deserve After Your Hard Work
Did your job accident result from repetitive movements that led to physical/emotional impairment? Was it a sudden, painful accident while working with malfunctioning heavy machinery? Did you fall from great heights? Did job pressures in a hectic production environment cause your heart attack or emotional distress.
You would think that an employer would feel empathy for your problem, reward your hard work with constructive action and address remedies right away – but many do not. At times like these, there is no substitute for the active participation of a dedicated, compassionate workplace accident attorney. In addition, I am a certified specialist in workers’ comp claims.
