Hurt at Work? Let Us Help
At Black and Jones, we know jobs can be demanding. We also know if you’re hurt at work, you’re not able to provide and pay your monthly expenses. It’s tough enough putting in so many hours with little compensation, but getting hurt at work can also be a life-altering injury. Your job, self-esteem, relationship with your family, and financial situation can be impacted after sustaining a serious injury at work.
This is where workers’ compensation can help. Workers Comp is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee's right to sue his or her employer for the tort of negligence. Basically, you can still get paid if you’re hurt on the job.
And that’s where Black & Jones Attorneys at Law can help. At Black & Jones, we provide the aggressive representation you need to resolve your dispute successfully.
It is highly recommended you get an attorney from the beginning to fight your claim.
