Types of Claims

Work Injuries

Injured Employee

Did you experience a workplace injury and are afraid to tell your employer for fear of losing wages? If yes, you are depriving yourself of the rightful benefits that your employer owes you for workplace injuries. Reach out to explore your options with Younessi Law. 

Unsafe Work Environment

Unsafe Job Injury

Any working condition that poses a serious threat to your life and well-being qualifies for unsafe working conditions and your employer is legally bound to cater for the cause. If your employer forces you to keep working in that workplace despite the lack of safety, you have a right to refuse and file a complaint against that employer.

Permanent Disability

Wheelchair Injury

Did you experience an unfortunate injury or illness due to your job, and haven’t fully recovered? If so, then you are not only damaging yourself by working against the physical limitations of your body, but you are also depriving yourself of permanent disability benefits. If your health condition is not recovering beyond a certain point, and your doctor testifies to the permanency of the disability, then you are eligible for disability benefits.

Repetitive Motion Injuries

Repetitive Motion Injury

External or internal injuries built through repetitive actions at the workplace also qualify for workplace compensation. This includes any injury or health problem developed over a period of time due to the job requirements, whether it be sitting at a desk or heavy lifting. In such cases, the employer is liable to pay compensation for the medical expenses to treat the medical condition- if it’s treatable – and compensate for the lost wages.

Construction Accidents

Construction Accident

A construction site is inherently dangerous for many reasons, especially when heights or machinery is involved. An injury that occurs while performing one's duties on the job can be eligible for compensation, especially if the employer is at fault of not reasonably accommodating your injury or if the site was not within safety protocols to begin with. 

Occupational Disease

Abestos Law Injury

Some work environments require exposure to harmful substances that can jeopardize one's health, whether it be short-term or from an accumulation over years of exposure. It is the employer's responsibility to maintain a safe work environment by providing the necessary safety equipment that can keep you, the employee, from toxic reactions. 

Workplace Death

Work Death

Though we expect our loved ones to be able to go to work without fear of unfortunate consequences, sometimes the worst imaginable can happen. Our compassionate team will lead the claim while you focus on what is most important, recovering with your family and friends. Compensation for the loss of someone can help to make up for any potential lost wages that supported the family, funeral costs, lost inheritance, and any other expenses that result from such a tragedy. 

Notice: Workers’ compensation fraud is a crime, and it is a felony to make a false or fraudulent material statement to obtain or deny any compensation. It is also a crime to knowingly assist, conspire with, or solicit any person in an unlawful act of workers’ compensation insurance fraud. Workers’ compensation fraud may be punished by imprisonment in county jail or state prison. A fine may also be imposed. If someone is convicted of workers’ compensation fraud, the court is required to order restitution, including restitution for any medical evaluation or treatment services obtained or provided. A person convicted of workers’ compensation fraud may be charged the costs of the investigation and is ineligible to receive or retain any compensation, where that compensation was owed or received as a result of workers’ compensation fraud.
