Personal Injury/Workers Compensation:
Generally, an injured worker can only file a workers compensation claim to receive benefits in connection with his/her work related injuries. However, another contractor or subcontractor working on the work premises may be held liable if they made a mistake which caused the injury. The manufacturer of defective machinery or equipment can also be held liable to pay for the losses if their negligence caused the workplace injury. At Sookasian Law, our experienced lawyers will thoroughly analyze every work injury to determine the liability of all involved parties.
