When someone is involved in a construction site accident, hurt while working in the office or injured in any other type of workplace accident, their world may change in an instant. From physical pain caused by a back injury to medical bills and lost wages, injured workers may face a number of hardships. To make matters worse, some are not aware of their rights and fail to take advantage of benefits that can help them recover. At Kirshenbaum & Kirshenbaum, we strive to help injured workers obtain workers' compensation and restore their sense of normalcy. In Providence, Rhode Island, and across the U.S., too many people have found themselves in this position and injured workers should not be afraid to stand up for themselves.
Sadly, workplace accidents take place too often and sometimes leave employees injured or even dead. Additionally, the fact that many of these accidents could have been prevented is especially upsetting. These accidents keep happening for numerous reasons, from unsafe working conditions to repetitive stress, and it is critical for workers and their employers to focus on prevention. Unfortunately, some workplace accidents simply cannot be prevented. If you were injured on the job, fighting for your rights is of vital importance. Whether you are struggling with medical expenses, unbearable pain, a brain injury or any other problem caused by a workplace accident, you should make sure you don't miss out on any benefits you are entitled to.
