Workplace Injuries

Do You Need Workers' Compensation and a Personal Injury Attorneys?

If you’ve been injured on the job, you may need a workers comp attorney. If you were injured on the job and it was the fault of someone besides a coworker, you may also need a personal injury attorney. Depending on the nature of the injury, the aftermath can negatively impact your life. You may need to file for disability benefits or look for a different type of work.

In the worst cases, a work related injury results in extremely high medical expenses, long-term rehabilitation therapy, and perhaps even in-home medical care. Sometimes these work injuries cause death, making your loved ones eligible for wrongful death compensation.

A knowledgeable, experienced attorney like Kathryn Burmeister will fight for your rights through every legal avenue possible. She can direct you to seek workers’ compensation with a workers comp attorney she trusts and handle you getting compensation for any additional personal injury claim that may be at issue.

What Does a Workers Compensation Lawyer vs a Personal Injury Lawyer Do for Victims?

A top personal injury lawyer listens to the details of your situation and determines whether it’s best for you to seek workers’ compensation, a personal injury claim, or both to identify them. You may need to file a claim against the party that caused your injury that is not your employer or coworker.

As your representative and advocate, Attorney Kathryn Burmeister will take over all communications with insurance companies and those overly-persistent bill collectors. This allows you to focus on regaining your mobility and health after your accident.
