You can come to Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. for experienced guidance and dedicated legal representation during this difficult time. We understand how concerned you may be if your injuries have forced you out of work, and we are ready to begin assisting you immediately.

About Serious On-the-Job Injuries

Heavy lifting and slip and fall accidents account for a large percentage of workplace injuries, but not all are the result of a single traumatic incident. Many workers who develop repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and chronic back pain fail to recognize that the condition is grounds for an injury claim. If you have received an injury at work under any circumstances, whether in an accident or over a long period of time, you may be able to recover compensation.

Workers' Compensation

When you have suffered workplace injuries, your accident will most likely be covered by workers' compensation. Many individuals in your position find that working with this system is difficult and frustrating, and there is a chance that your claim will be wrongly denied. You can significantly improve your chances of a successful claim by coming to Jason K.S. Porter for help.

Workers' compensation coverage is mandatory for businesses in our state with four or more employees, and it protects the employer against the liability of being sued in a personal injury lawsuit. It also guarantees that the employee will receive benefits under most circumstances without the necessity of proving that the employer's negligence was a contributing factor or cause of the injury. As long as your injury was not self-inflicted or the result of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you will most likely be covered.

The major downside to this system, from the employee's perspective, is that workers' compensation benefits are significantly limited in comparison to what the worker might receive in a personal injury lawsuit. If you have been injured in a construction accident or other type of workplace incident, your benefits will generally be calculated at roughly two-thirds of your normal wages, in addition to compensation for medical treatment, and you cannot claim punitive damages or pain and suffering. We have extensive experience with preparing workers' compensation claims and in helping clients recover payment, and will represent you throughout the process.

Hire an Attorney You Can Count On

Your eligibility to file a claim is not restricted to injuries which occurred in the office. Workers whose job duties require them to drive can seek compensation for a car accident and may be able to sue the other driver for negligence. If you were injured in a construction accident, we can represent you in your workers' compensation claim, as well as taking legal action against any third party whose actions may have caused or contributed to your injury.
