Wage and Hour Claims
Lost Wages Due to Reduced Hours or Being Unable To Work Can Devastate Your Whole Family
It's the last thing we think of when we go to work each day and yet it can impact our entire quality of life and that of our dependents: Being unable to work if we suffer a job-related injury. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2011 over 1 million injured workers in private industry, state government and local government jobs across the county had to take time off from work in order to recover. That same year, 20 percent of the days-away-from-work cases due to occupational injuries and illnesses was comprised of laborers, nursing aides, orderlies, attendants, janitors, cleaners, tractor-trailer truck drivers, police officers and sheriff's patrol officers. Workers compensation is there to cover every injured worker, regardless of profession. However, without experienced legal representation, you may end up having to fight a denied workers compensation claim and may receive no settlement at all.
