Working on scaffolding or ladders presents very real risks of injury to the workers who have to climb them and work on them every day. Falling from a height can cause a range of serious and even fatal injuries, including:
- Brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Shoulder and knee injuries
- Paralysis (paraplegia, quadriplegia)
Understanding your rights as an injured worker is paramount to being able to protect them. We can help you understand what the workers’ compensation system is and other avenues of compensation such as filing suit against a party who is not your employer and who may have contributed to or caused your accident.
Undocumented Workers Are Entitled To Benefits
Too often undocumented workers who are injured are told that they have no right to workers’ compensation benefits. That is not true. Your employer remains responsible for your benefits, despite your documentation status. Let us help you understand and protect your benefits.
