Workplace injuries are more common than most people realize. The types of injuries sustained from workplace accidents can include back and neck injuries, laceration, broken bones, chemical burns, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. In some cases, workplace injuries can even be life threatening. The primary means of recovering compensation for lost wages and medical expenses after a workplace injury is to file a workers compensation claim. The workers compensation system is designed to compensate employees who have sustained an injury on the job. Workers comp benefits typically pay for lost wages, medical bills and incidental expenses related to the injury.

Most people think workplace injuries are limited to accidents like falling off of scaffolding, being hit by a forklift or similar incidents. Many are surprised to learn medical problems, like heart attacks, strokes and pneumonia, can, in some instances, be grounds for a worker’s compensation claim.
To be eligible for worker’s compensation, the heart attack, stroke or other sudden medical event suffered at work needs to be caused, at least in part, by the job.
Just having a heart attack at work usually does not qualify for worker’s compensation. For example, if an employee suffers a heart attack performing normal duties at work, the claim might be denied. If, however, an elderly employee is told to lift a heavy object by a supervisor and suffers a heart attack as a result of the lifting, the claim is more likely to be granted.
Whether the heart attack happened while driving a work vehicle, lifting a heavy load or because of an unusually stressful work environment, you may be eligible for worker’s compensation. Workers suffering a heart attack or stroke caused by their work should schedule a free consultation with McLario, Helm, Bertling, & Spiegel, S.C. before making a worker’s compensation claim.
While elevators are generally safe and most people ride them without a second thought about their safety, elevators cause thousands of injuries each year. Many of these injuries are suffered by small children and elderly people who trip and fall due to a misalignment of the elevator or the failure of a safety mechanism. The results of these injuries are usually cuts, bruises and broken bones.
Workers injured by elevators, though, often suffer far worse injuries.
Dismemberment and death result when elevators suddenly drop, crushing repair technicians working in the shaft. Work elevators, often found at construction sites, can lead to injury both through safety system failure and accidental falls. Construction workers can fall into the shaft, often leading to a fatality.
As rare as elevator injuries are, they do happen. When negligently maintained or installed elevators injure you or a loved one, be sure to seek legal help.

Speed and efficiency in delivering benefits to injured workers is the advantage of the workers compensation system. However, in reality even the most minor workplace injury claims can become complicated and stressful very quickly. When negligence is involved, accident victims may be entitled to both workers comp benefits and a wider range of personal injury damages.
Unfortunately, many workplace accident victims are not aware of the extent of their legal rights until it is too late and end up receiving far less compensation than they rightfully deserve. The best way to ensure you get every penny you deserve is to hire a Wisconsin workers compensation attorney. At our Milwaukee area law firm, we have a team of workers compensation lawyers who will review your claim and make sure you receive all of the benefits you are entitled to under the law. Our goal is to relieve some of the stress associated with your claim and help you physically and financially recover from your injuries.
