Representing The Injured In Workers’ Compensation Claims

At Mancini Law, we help people from all types of industries file workers’ compensation claims. From repetitive stress injuries suffered by office workers to head injuries suffered by construction workers, we take on a wide range of injury cases. Our attorneys regularly represent clients in complex cases involving injuries related to workplace conditions such as exposure to chemicals and excessive noise as well as emotional trauma linked to the conduct of managers and coworkers.

We pride ourselves on answering incoming calls to make sure you speak to an actual person rather than leaving a message and waiting for a return call. If one of our attorneys is available when you call, you will speak to them immediately. If not, you will get a paralegal who will take your information and you will get a follow-up call from an attorney within two business days.

Common Injuries Associated With Workers’ Compensation Claims

Most injuries and illnesses resulting from work-related accidents or job-related tasks qualify for a claim. This includes on-the-clock work-related travel (but not commutes to and from work), mistakes and accidents on the job. Common injuries resulting in a workers’ compensation claim include:

  • Brain and head injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and joint injuries
  • Respiratory illness linked to toxic chemicals
  • Hearing problems caused by excessive noise in the workplace
  • Psychological trauma related to abusive treatment in the workplace
  • Hypertension and other heart-related problems

There are deadlines for filing a claim. When injuries are readily apparent following an accident or event, a claim must be filed within one year of the day the accident or event happened. When your claim involves occupational disease/illness, the claim must be filed within three years of the first signs/diagnosis of symptoms.”

What Do Workers’ Compensation Benefits Cover?

The purpose of workers’ compensation claims is to provide compensation to employees who were legitimately injured in the workplace or doing work-related tasks while on the clock. Benefits vary based on the type and severity of the injury or illness, but may include:

  • Compensation for therapy and medical treatment
  • Temporary partial or total disability
  • Permanent partial or total disability
  • Retraining for a different position
  • Discretionary benefits

When we examine your claim, we can determine what benefits you qualify for. We put our experience to work to ensure that you get all of the benefits you are entitled to.
