Workers Compensation Lawyer

If you were injured on the job, you need to know your rights.

 

Most employees in Rhode Island are covered by Workers’ Compensation insurance. This coverage provides benefits to pay for medical care and wage losses in the event of a workplace injury. However, insurance companies want to keep their claim costs low, and they may deny legitimate claims or terminate benefits before workers have fully recovered. If you have suffered an injury while on the job, you may need the services of an experienced work injury lawyer to help you get the medical care and benefits you deserve.

As a worker covered by Workers’ Compensation, you have rights. For example, while the Workers’ Compensation insurance company may try to steer you to a particular doctor for treatment, you can go to a doctor of your choice. You also have the right to challenge a denied claim or a decision to terminate your benefits. The legal team at Sheeley Law can review your situation, explain your rights and discuss how we can help you get all of the benefits you are entitled to receive.

  • Eye injuries and vision impairment

  • Other types of workplace injuries

Can I Sue My Employer?

Workers’ Compensation is designed to be a faultless system. That means that you cannot sue your employer for your injuries, even if your employer is primarily at fault. However, if your injury was at least partly the fault of another party, such as a contractor or an equipment supplier, you may be able to make a third-party claim in addition to your Workers’ Compensation claim. This may enable you to obtain additional compensation for lost income, and pain and suffering. We provide aggressive representation for injured workers, and we will seek maximum compensation from all possible sources.
