Workers Compensation Office Employee Injury Claims
There is an assumption that if you work in an office, not performing manual labor, the risks of an accident or injury leading to a workers’ compensation claim is low. This is actually not the case. We have represented many workers that were required to file workers’ compensation claims in order to protect their income and the welfare of their family. We have represented office employees for workers’ comp benefits for injuries sustained after a serious slip and fall, after workplace assault, after a serious car accident while the employee was traveling to pick up office supplies, and for repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel cubital tunnel syndrome. These are just a few of the injuries for which we have helped our clients recover workers’ compensation benefits.
