Your Advocate After A Workplace Injury

Workplace injuries can cover a broad spectrum of conditions, traumatic accidents and ongoing pain. Whether you were injured in a serious one-time accident or developed chronic pain from years on the job, we have the experience and medical understanding needed to evaluate your situation and recover the benefits that you deserve.

Seeking Compensation For All Types Of Workplace Injuries

The Bedell Law Firm represents victims of all types of workplace injuries, including:

  • Head injury
  • Neck injury
  • Back injury
  • Shoulder injury
  • Elbow injury
  • Hand injury
  • Hip injury
  • Knee injury
  • Foot injury

These on-the-job injuries may be the result of one-time events, such as a skull fracture from a falling object or a crushed hand from a punch-press accident. Many injuries are the result of repetitive motions and develop slowly over time. These are referred to as repetitive motion injuries and include carpal tunnel syndrome from repetitive arm and hand motions, or herniated disks and lower back injuries from repeated lifting of heavy objects.

The location of the injury will play a role in the case, particularly if you are deemed to have a permanent partial disability. There is a schedule that determines the value of the disability based on the appendage that was injured and the percentage of disability. For example, an injured hand is assigned a certain value. The percentage to which the doctor determines that your hand is disabled will be the percentage of that value you get in compensation.

Anticipating And Overcoming The Insurance Company's Strategies

Workers' compensation insurance companies have many tactics to avoid paying claims. One of those tactics is to claim that the injury was a pre-existing condition that occurred outside of the workplace. With 20-plus years of experience, attorney Donald W. Bedell and his team know how to overcome these tactics, working with doctors to prove when and where the injury occurred. It is important to understand that, even if the condition originated outside of the workplace, if it was worsened due to work activities or re-injury occurred because of a work accident, you are still entitled to workers' compensation benefits.
