A Skilled Milwaukee Worker’s Compensation Attorney Fights for You
Providing relief to Sheboygan and surrounding communities for more than a century
Wisconsin passed its worker’s compensation law in 1911. Our law firm was founded in 1912, and we’ve fought for injured workers ever since. The team of Milwaukee worker’s compensation attorneys at The Previant Law Firm, S.C., led by partner Thomas Flanagan, is among the most experienced group of lawyers in the state in obtaining worker’s compensation benefits for work-related accidents.
What is worker’s compensation?
If you’ve suffered a serious job-related injury, you’re probably entitled to worker’s compensation benefits from your employer. These are benefits you are owed under Wisconsin worker’s compensation laws, but getting your benefits is not always as easy as it should be. Companies and insurance carriers may try to minimize the money they must give workers. As Wisconsin’s oldest worker’s compensation law firm, we provide skilled Milwaukee workplace injuries lawyers to counsel and advocate for injured workers.
Common work-related injuries compelling payment from employers
- Common workplace accidents. Employers are required to provide a safe working environment for their employees. Even common workplace accidents are inexcusable.
- Construction-site accidents. Involving heavy machinery and unpredictable weather conditions, accidents at construction sites can happen to anyone.
- Repetitive motion accidents. Knee and ankle injuries as well as shoulder and elbow injuries are sometimes caused by repetitive motion accidents.
- Back and neck injuries. If heavy lifting over many hours each day on the job causes a back or neck injury, you may be entitled to worker’s compensation.
- Hearing loss. If you believe your hearing loss is caused by something that happened at work, your employer may be liable. Since hearing is difficult to restore, you may be entitled to recovery for future loss of enjoyment of life.
- Permanent total disability. Victims of permanent total disability need assistance for the rest of their lives. If this disability is caused by a workplace accident, your employer may be required to cover all the medical bills.
- Permanent partial disability. Permanent partial disability from a workplace accident may impede you from ever having sustainable employment again. Find out if you are entitled to compensation.
- Third-party liability. There may be third-party liability in your worker’s compensation claim. For example, if your employer uses a defective piece of machinery, the machine manufacturer may be liable in addition to your employer.
