Slip and Fall On the Job Injuries

San Jose Injury Lawyers Serving All of Northern California

Just like any kind of personal injury, a slip-and-fall accident is something that can have a serious impact on a worker's health. The problem is that employers don't always take these injuries seriously.

Resolution of a workplace slip-and-fall case depends on the specifics of the employer's workers' compensation insurance company and state law. Northern California has its own rules and regulations on workers' compensation, and injury attorneys have researched local statutes thoroughly to help their clients understand what they are facing.

Case Details

Many details can apply to a San Jose slip-and-fall work injury case. The employer, or their insurance company, may demand an independent medical exam. This exam can have a huge impact on a case. Because the injuries associated with a slip and fall accident can be difficult to diagnose, different doctors may come up with significantly different findings. Professional injury lawyer teams can advise their clients on how to handle an independent medical exam and how to speak with a doctor hired by the parties with liability in the case.

While you deal with the independent medical exam, the legal team will be gathering all of the documentation needed to advance the case. These lawyers can also help clients figure out any complexities of a worker's compensation scenario, including stacked claims or statutes of limitations. Don't go up against an insurance company or other party with high-power legal teams without your own effective representation. Rely on the knowledge of experienced personal injury lawyers to help you get necessary and deserved compensation.

The compensation to which you may be entitled can help you cover various expenses, including but not limited to:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages, past and future
  • Lost employment
  • Rehabilitation
  • Vocational training (if you are unable to return to your previous employment)
