Helping Injured Distribution Workers Recover Compensation
Heavy, stacked boxes. Forklift traffic. Running from one end of a warehouse to the other. Performing the same motion over and over again. Delivery truck and loading dock problems. Distribution centers are full of potential hazards to people who work in them. A brief moment of inattention or a slight shift in a stack of materials can result in a serious accident and injury. Regardless of how the accident occurred, if it happened while you were performing a job-related duty, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Having a lawyer on your side can help ensure that you recover the full amount of benefits to which you are entitled.
At Friedman & Cool, LLC, our attorneys are dedicated to helping injured workers pursue the compensation they deserve. We can help walk you through the claims process, step by step, to help avoid unnecessary delays and denials of valid workers’ comp claims.
We Handle All Work-Related Injury Claims
Whether you have suffered a back or neck injury from a falling box or were hurt in a forklift accident, or if repetitive motions have taken a physical toll on your body, our attorneys are here for you. It is important to keep in mind that the workers’ compensation system is designed to remove fault from the equation. In other words, it doesn’t matter if your actions, the actions of a co-worker or the actions of your employer were the direct cause of the accident. If it occurred while you were performing a job-related duty, you should be eligible for workers’ comp.
Despite being a no-fault system, employers and insurance providers will still try to use blame in an effort to avoid paying benefits. They may also claim that an injury is not as serious as it appears and ongoing medical treatment is unnecessary. It is important to know and assert your rights. Having skilled legal counsel on your side is the best way to help you recover the benefits you need.
