Concord Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Fighting for Injured Workers Since 1989
Employers have a responsibility to their workers-- they must provide a reasonably safe workspace and they must provide their staff with the safety equipment they need. However, even if these requirements are met, accidents can happen.
If you were injured at your place of work, or if you suffered an injury or illness due to your job, you’re probably wondering what you should do next to protect your rights. As an employee, you have a right to workers’ compensation benefits for nearly any injury or illness that occurs while you are working. Whether you work in an office or at a construction site, you are entitled to certain monetary benefits if you were harmed on the job.

Common Workers’ Compensation Claims
Any injured worker can file a workers’ compensation claim if they are in any way harmed while working. These claims can vary in nature and may include anything from a fatality to a broken bone.
Common types of injuries and illnesses in workers’ compensation claims include:
- Falling object injuries
- Fire or explosion injuries
- Loss of limb
- Heavy machinery injuries
- Injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents
- Illnesses and injuries caused by chemical exposure
Any of these incidents can result in major, even fatal, injuries. Depending on the type of damage you sustain, you may face expensive hospital bills, surgeries, medications, loss of wages, and more.
Our firm can work with you to assess the severity of your injuries and the resulting expense to better gauge the value of your claim. Whatever the monetary value, we understand that you’ve been greatly inconvenienced by your work incident, and we want to do what we can to support you as you pursue the benefits you’re entitled to. Our primary objective is to help you get back on your feet, and we’ll use our ample resources to help in any way we can.
What Should I Do After a Work Injury?
If you were injured on the job, the first thing you need to do is seek safety. Once you are out of danger, assess your injuries. If your injuries are very serious, call 911 or ask someone nearby to call for you. If your injuries are not life-threatening, report the incident to your supervisor, or ask a nearby co-worker to report it for you, then ask someone to transport you to the emergency room. After you’ve been treated by a medical professional, you need to officially report the incident to your supervisor as soon as possible. Before you sign any forms or fill out any paperwork, it is in your best interest to discuss the particulars of your case with an attorney.
