Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Hagerstown
Good, hardworking people get hurt on the job every day. Too often, the injuries are severe and life-changing. When accidents like these happen, I stand up for people affected by them. Serafini Law is a local law firm that serves the Hagerstown, Maryland, area and beyond. I fight for injured workers in my community and strive to obtain the support they need to recover.
Types Of Accidents That Can Happen On The Job
There are a lot of things that can go wrong in a fast-paced, hazard-fraught work environment. Common accidents I help my clients recover from include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Collisions with falling objects
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Falls from elevated surfaces
- Heavy machinery and equipment accidents
- Exposure to toxic materials
If you suffered an accident from the list above or another type of workplace accident, I’m here to help get you on the road to recovery.
Injuries That Commonly Result From Workplace Accidents
Injuries that happen at work can be severe, for example:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss of limbs or digits
- Loss of hearing or eyesight
- Mental disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Injuries like the ones above can affect a person’s ability to work. When this happens, workers’ compensation benefits can help support them.
The Effects Of A Work Injury Can Last A Lifetime
The effects of some injuries last a few weeks or months. Eventually, many workers can return to their jobs. However, the effects of some injuries last a very long time – potentially the rest of a person’s life. In these cases, their medical needs and financial challenges will be constant. If you’re in a situation like this after a work accident, don’t lose hope. I will fight to secure sufficient, dependable support for you on an ongoing basis.
How My Firm Helps Injured Workers
Workers’ compensation claims can be complex. There’s a lot of paperwork to complete, insurance companies to deal with and medical care to arrange. You could also be pursuing a personal injury claim in tandem with your workers’ compensation claim, which means double the complexity. Throughout this process, I will do everything I can to get you the care you need, protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.
