Work-related Injuries

Were you injured at work or did you fall ill as a direct result of your work? Do you live and work in Whitby? Are you looking for a personal injury lawyer in Whitby Look no further than our firm for proper representation in cases of work-related injuries.

Workplace accidents happen every day, and there are many unfortunate opportunities for an employee to sustain an injury on the job. According to the Center for Disease Control, the most common workplace-related injuries are sprains, cuts, burns, bruises, and fractures. These injuries are most frequently sustained due to overexertion, slipping, tripping or falling in the workplace. However, more serious injuries can be sustained and can lead to much more drastic outcomes, such as permanent disability. No matter what the injury, our attorneys are prepared to handle your case. We’ve successfully handled hundreds of cases in Whitby and are confident in our abilities to take on yours. Our workers’ compensation attorneys can help determine if you are entitled to compensation and what benefits you may be entitled to.

A work-related injury suit focuses on reimbursing any and all reasonable medical expenses after an accident. These medical expenses can include, but are not limited to, surgical costs, hospital visits, the costs of prescription medications, and, in some cases, travel costs if the medical facility is far away. Under certain circumstances, workers can even receive payment for future medical expenses, potentially for life. However, it should be noted that not every employee injured on the job is entitled to benefits. While this may be the case, our attorneys understand your desire to obtain reimbursement for your injuries sustained on the job and we will work with you to obtain the appropriate compensation given the benefits you are entitled to.

In cases of permanent injury, our attorneys can secure disability benefits to those who are either limited in their ability to work after their injury or incapable of working due to the injuries they sustained on the job. While the amount of disability benefits claimed is directly related to the injured worker’s pre-tax earnings, additional compensation may be available for workers who have sustained permanent injury. In any unfortunate cases of death on the job, benefits are payable to the worker’s surviving dependants and spouse. When it comes to Whitby personal injury lawyers, our attorneys can provide you with the fairest, most robust worker’s compensation.
