Work injuries result from accidents at the workplace occurring in the course of employment. These accidents are caused by inherent factors steaming from the operation of materials of the worker’s occupation.
A total over 4.4 million nonfatal work related injuries per year were reported in the private industry workplaces. This indicates a rate of 5 work related injuries per 100 full-time workers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the rate of work related injuries decreased from 5.3 cases per 100 workers, while the decline is a result of a decrease in reporting as well as a decrease in the number of hours worked.
In the event of a work accident, a prompt reporting of the injury is of essence. Prompt reporting will ensure that the injured worker receives the right medical attention as well as the needed support at the most appropriate time. The sooner the work injury is treated, the sooner the worker is able to return to work and the less complications arise with worker’s compensation payments.
If you are a worker who has sustained injuries while at work, it is advisable to consult an attorney immediately after the accident. The more time passes, the more rights you may be waiving unwillingly. At the same time, it is best to speak with your attorney before you speak with insurance agents, adjusters or the company’s attorney.
In many cases, the insurance companies will offer injured workers to pay for the medical bills without any questions asked. However, most injured workers don’t feel comfortable asking for additional money to cover pain, suffering or loss of work. This is where the injured workers’ attorney comes into play. An experienced lawyer will fight for adequate compensation and justified payments, because most likely the accident was not your fault to begin with and it is the duty of the employer to provide a safe and secure workplace.

“Trust, confidence, and reliability were [the] major factors that impressed me most when I hired the Law Offices of Bob Nehoray to represent me. I was seriously injured at work and was treated very badly by my employer. I’ve gone through many hurdles and obstacles looking for the right attorney to satisfy my needs and expectations but nobody [seemed] to care about me. Some turned me down [while others] took advantage of me. [They] did not even care and appeared to be more interested in what they could get out of my case, thus, putting their [own] personal interest over mine.
I was hopeless and almost gave up, because my workers’ compensation claim was tied [in] with my discrimination/harassment civil lawsuit against my employer, [which] made the whole situation very complicated. However, it was not too late when I met Mr. Nehoray and his office manager, Alma Gavia, who gave me hope and courage. They patiently listened to me and spent time and effort with me. Mr. Nehoray took-on my case despite complications. He handled it with proper care and professionalism.

“Law Offices of Bob Nehoray… I will NEVER be able to thank you enough for what you’ve done for me; and it isn’t the amazing settlement that you got for me that I am most grateful for; it is how professional you and your entire office staff were. Everyone is SO nice [and] caring. They made me feel like a person and not just a ‘client.’ The fact that you were able to handle both my Personal Injury and my Workers’ Compensation cases at the same time was very important as well.
