As an educator, your life’s purpose is devoted the educating children preparing them for their own unique future. Unfortunately, educators are exposed to injuries from student violence. In addition, educators can suffer injures from slip and falls (often in the parking lot) and other mechanism of injuries, e.g., tripping over children, mold exposure, falling down stairs, etc. Injuries to educators can range from traumatic brain injuries to broken bones. We assist many educators with their workers’ compensation claims and injuries, so they can focus on recovery allowing them to get back in the classroom with their kids.
Delivering packages takes a toll on the body. The many deliveries and the heavy weight of the packages creates the perfect environment for back injuries, car accidents, lifting injuries, and falls can all leave an employee with lifelong medical concerns. One of the many concerns of our injured clients that work for a delivery company, is getting the treatment and benefits they need to be able to return to their job. We are familiar with the delivery company contracts and the add difficulties that can develop if a person is unable to return to their job quickly.
There is a reason this field of work is the most commonly thought of for workplace injuries. Most common injuries in the construction industry are from falls, falling objects, and lifting. However, defective product injuries, car accidents, and accidents related to heavy equipment, are just a few injuries that these workers also are exposed. Often times in the construction industry workers are employed by a company that does not carry workers’ compensation insurance (this is a violation of the law). Many times, we can find a way to get the benefits you deserve through the general contractor.
