Worker's Compensation

 

Workplace injuries can present a range of problems. Some injured parties mistakenly believe that their employer will take care of their medical treatment. Others expect their employer to file for Workers' Compensation Commission on their behalf. Many injured employees are reluctant to file a claim themselves out of a fear of jeopardizing their jobs. Still others mistakenly believe that they are not entitled to benefits because the workplace accident may have been their fault.

At Summerfield, Willen, Silverberg & Limsky, our attorneys have more than 45 years of combined experience handling work-related accidents of all kinds. We can offer the support and representation you need at a difficult time and stand ready to protect your rights, which include the following:
