The world can be a cruel place. Kill or be killed. Eat or be eaten. Survival of the fittest.
Luckily, we have laws in place that protect the rights of injured workers and provide them with the benefits and compensation they need to maintain their quality of life and make a full recovery.
That doesn’t mean you can rely on your employer or the insurance companies during your time of need. They care about something, but it is not you.
So, who really cares?
You care. Your loved ones care. And your personal injury attorney cares.
At Block O’Toole & Murphy we have seen too many cases over the years where injured workers believed what they were told by their employer or their insurance company. Things like:
- “We care about helping you get back on your feet.”
- “We will take care of everything.”
- “There’s no need to make a legal claim. That will only complicate things.”
- “Your job is safe. Take all the time you need.”
When it comes down to dollars and cents – actually making an investment – employers and insurers care about one thing: getting you through the system as quickly and cheaply as possible.
You owe it to yourself to have an attorney on your side who cares about making sure you have the financial resources you need to pay your bills, care for your family, and put your life back together after a workplace injury.
