Injured in a Workplace Accident? Protecting the Injured in Wisconsin & Minnesota

Workplace Injury Lawyer

According to the United States Department of Labor,  nearly 2.9 million people fell victim to nonfatal workplace injury or illness each year, and 5,190 were killed on the job in 2016.  If you are one of them or had a family member who lost his or her life, then it is imperative that you know your legal rights.

Speaking to a personal injury lawyer is your first step to recovering compensation for the physical, mental, and emotional suffering you have endured due to a workplace injury. While you have probably been informed that your injury will be handled through workers’ compensation, this may not be enough. At Bye, Goff & Rohde, we have over 180 years of combined experience helping those injured in the workplace. Moreover, we are determined to ensure that you are getting everything you are entitled to.

Common Workplace Injuries

Some of the most common workplace injuries include:

  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Highway and work zone accidents
  • Electrical shock and electrocution
  • Heavy-duty machinery accidents (forklifts, cranes, power tools)
  • Heavy-duty machinery accidents due to improper servicing/maintenance
  • Falls, slips, and trips

What Are Your Legal Rights?

Every employer has the legal responsibility to keep the workplace up to a certain standard of safety. This means marking unsafe items, ensuring employees are properly trained and equipped with safety equipment and maintaining the workplace environments. A workplace injury can cause serious life-threatening repercussions. Not only is your health on the line but your future income as well.

If you or someone you love has suffered a workplace injury, the most important thing to remember is that there is always hope for recovery and improvement. It may take time, patience, and a complete life adjustment, but, with the right attitude and the right financial assistance, anything is possible. Bye, Goff & Rohde is a personal injury law firm that can help you and your family get back on the right track.

A workplace injury lawsuit can help you recover damages for:

  • Loss of income as well as the projected loss of income
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Emotional suffering
  • Therapy (occupational, physical, etc.)
  • Childcare expenses and career expenses
  • Medications and other medical expenses
  • Medical equipment needed for the house and the car

Why Workers’ Compensation May Not Cover All Your Needs

Workplace injuries can be quite complex, especially as you are supposed to be covered by workers’ compensation. All companies must include workers’ compensation in their regulations; however, if faced with a serious or long-term injury in the workplace, workers’ compensation is often not enough. Furthermore, most insurance companies will not pay for your full damages including medications, doctor and specialist visits, and/or complete loss of income.

Another issue regarding workers’ compensation claims is that the insurance agency is not on your side. They will try everything in their power to avoid making payouts to the injured parties. This can be frustrating, stressful, and hurtful, to say the least.
