Last month attorney Barb Strady gave a great description of Personal Injury Law, so I thought I’d follow in her footsteps with a bit of information about Workers Compensation.
Workers’ Compensation laws protect people who are injured on the job. They are designed to ensure that employees who are injured or disabled are provided with fixed monetary awards. These laws also provide benefits for dependents of those workers who are killed because of work-related accidents or illnesses.
Workers’ Compensation laws can be confusing, and at times, more than a little frustrating to navigate, and that’s where the attorneys of Casper and Casper can help. If you have been injured on the job, give us a call or send us an email. We’ll help you make sense of the complex Workers’ Compensation system, and help you receive the benefits that you deserve.

I’m frequently asked to define Personal Injury Law, a great question by the way, so thought I’d share what I think is a great description from Lawyers.com
Personal injury is the name given to the branch of tort law that covers any wrong or damage done to another person, his property, rights, or reputation. A personal injury can happen at work, in a traffic accident, because of a faulty product or a faulty repair, because of a mistake during medical treatment, or because you slipped and fell on a wet floor or pavement. The personal injury can be physical or psychological but, to be considered actionable, it must occur due to the negligence or unreasonably unsafe actions of your employer, a manufacturer, your doctor, your landlord, or some other person or organization who owes you a duty of ordinary care.
If you think you may have a case for a personal injury settlement, please don’t hesitate to contact the attorneys of Casper & Casper, we’ll be happy to meet with you and give you any assistance that you might need.
