How Were You Injured At Work?

Accidents and injuries happen in every industry, from blue collar construction and industrial work to white collar office jobs.

Common work injuries include:

  • Lifting injuries to the back, neck or knees
  • Hearing loss or vision loss
  • Exposure to chemicals or toxic fumes
  • Work-related auto accidents
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Falls from ladders, scaffolding or other heights
  • Accidents involving heavy machinery or equipment
  • Burn injuries or electrocution

Any type of injury can derail your health, financial stability and well-being.

You Have Rights

If you sustained an injury on the job, you are not alone. Workplace injuries afflict millions of workers every year nationwide. And every year, millions of injured workers from all walks of life turn to workers’ compensation. These benefits, which typically include both medical coverage and replacement for lost wages, can provide the financial support you need to get back on your feet.

We Can Shoulder The Legal Burdens Of Workers’ Comp

Following an accident or injury, you are likely feeling overwhelmed with the shock of what happened – and how quickly your life was turned upside down. The medical appointments, treatment and rehabilitation may consume all your time and energy. Sorting through the blizzard of paperwork from your employer and the insurance company can seem like an insurmountable hurdle.

At the Law Office of Morrin & Sands, we can help simplify things. Our attorneys have more than three decades of collective experience in workers’ compensation law. We can focus on the legal aspects of your claim, navigating the often complex workers’ compensation process so you can focus on recovering.
