Have You Been Injured On The Job?

At Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford, we help people who have been injured on the job pursue compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and disability. Many of our clients are coping with serious and catastrophic personal injuries and are unable to return to work. Even so, their employers may try to delay and deny workers' compensation (also known as workers' comp or workman's comp) benefits.

Common types of workplace injuries include:

  • Head injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Puncture wounds
  • Chemical burns
  • Electrical shocks
  • Repetitive stress injuries (carpal tunnel syndrome, for example)

Common causes of workplace injuries include:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Falls from heights
  • Scaffolding collapses
  • Explosions
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Crane accidents
  • Objects falling on workers

Of course, not all workplace accidents take place in industrial settings. Any person injured while performing his or her job duties is entitled to workers' compensation benefits. Whether you were injured travelling to a sales meeting, operating a company vehicle or while working on a construction site, our attorneys will stand up for your rights and help you pursue the benefits to which you are entitled.
