If you are injured at work, or even unfairly dismissed because of the incident, the best thing you can do is seek expert advice to guide you in the steps you need to take to be compensated for your injuries or any other damages you have suffered.
An labor attorney, or employment lawyer, acts as your representative in court and is in charge of litigating your case. He or she can represent you in situations having to do with work contracts, employee relations, benefits, unfair terminations, disability, and compensation for injuries incurred on the job in an accident. Your attorney will take charge of negotiating the judicial process both in and out of court based on the rights you have as an employee in the place where the event took place.
The most common situations addressed by an employment lawyer are:
- Workplace machinery accidents
- Work-related accidents
- Workplace discrimination
- Accidental death
- Unfair dismissal
- Workplace Harassment
- Injury on the job
- Noise-induced injury
- Injury due to toxic or dangerous substances
- Repetitive motion injury
- Work-related illness
- Workplace claims
If you find yourself in one of these situations it is very important that you seek the help of a professional with experience in this area that can evaluate your case. Many employees are unaware of their options and the benefits they are entitled to according to the workers’ compensation laws in their state. United States law has ample protection for today’s employees, including the majority who are working under at-will Employment contracts.
In addition, an Employment Lawyer will keep you informed about the status of your case, when you need to present paperwork, what type of paperwork is necessary, and where and when you need to present it. A lawyer with experience in these types of cases will know the best way to deal with companies, their owners, and employers. That’s why it’s essential to work with someone who has extensive experience in the area of Employment Law and who can offer you the certainty that your case will be dealt with responsibly, with dedication, always trying to get you the maximum compensation.
