Most people think that they will not get hurt on the job; that it will happen to someone else. They think, “Even if I do get hurt, I cannot fight the insurance company or the person who hit me and win the case.” If you don’t plan ahead to know your rights, and if you do not have a trusted law firm in your corner, if and when you or a loved one gets hurt, you will get taken advantage of by insurance companies. In this article, we will tell you what the chances are of you getting hurt on the job, and why you should have our law firm in your corner. We are here to give you free legal advice and guidance so that you can be prepared for things before they happen to you or someone you love.
Injured and Have Questions? You’re Not Alone!
Were you injured and feel like the task of bringing the insurance company to justice is beyond your ability?

We are here to stand up for you and to make sure justice is delivered.

We do everything in our power to bring justice to our clientele, regardless of how much money and power our opponents command.
A Few Statistics to Get You Thinking
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is constantly gathering data related to workplace injuries and other important employer-related data like benefits, workman’s compensation statistics and more. One of the things they pay attention to is employer-related injuries. Employers are tasked with the well-being of their employees, and are required to create and maintain safe environments for their team members. Because of this, the Bureau of Labor Statistics pays close attention to these businesses. Here are some numbers to get you thinking.
According to the 2013 Occupational Injuries and Illnesses Annual News Release by the BLS, employers reported more than 3 million workplace injuries that were not fatal, which simplifies to an incidence rating of about 3.3 cases of injury for every 100 full-time working employees. 1.7 of those 3.3 cases were considered “more serious,” meaning that the victim experienced multiple days off from work or even needed to go through re-assignment due to the injury.
Report Your Injury the Day It Happens!
Almost two out of every 100 workers has experienced an on-site injury that got reported to the government. Not to speculate too much, but imagine how many in-work injuries go unreported—don’t become one of those statistics. If you feel your injury hasn’t been properly reported, it’s time to consult a legal professional, especially if the injury has changed your lifestyle or kept you out of work for an extended period of time. Don’t let your incident go unreported… and don’t listen to any advice telling you otherwise!
Injury – It’s Not Just in the Workplace!
If you’re a guest somewhere and you’re injured, it’s up to the owner of that place to compensate you if your life has been impacted in some way. Premises liability is extremely important, more now than ever. When businesses try to save money on safety measures and it impacts the health of one of their visitors or guests, they should be held accountable for their actions. A strategic and strong legal professional will do just that. If you injure yourself due to the negligence of a business you’re giving your money to, they should be brought to justice!
Abuse Victims Should Report Injury Immediately
If you’re a victim of domestic abuse at home, call police and get legal representation as quickly as possible. According to statistics from the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, about 60% of all domestic violence cases result in a complete conviction (meaning fines, jail time and more), and only about 1% of them end in acquittal (dropping of all charges.) You might not put your abuser in jail, but you’ll certainly get some kind of justice. The battle starts with you. Don’t let personal injury go unreported.
