Antioch Muscle Injury Attorneys
Many specific injuries, such as a broken bone, can be traced back to a single accident suffered on the job or from an accident. Most often, however, a muscle or joint injury is the result of repetitive stress. Following an accident, it is important to seek the counsel of an experienced Concord bone injury attorney in order to learn more about your options for monetary compensation. Bone and tendon injuries are often debilitating and prevent our clients from returning to work. Non work accidents can also be quite frustrating due to the stubborn nature of the injury. Our firm insures that our injured clients recover monetary compensation for their injuries including:
- Temporary disability/recovery of lost wages
- Permanent disability/recovery of lost earning capacity
- Proper ongoing medical care
- Assurances that future medical care will be covered
- Pain and suffering damages
- Vocational retraining voucher/damages
- Emotional distress counseling/damages
At the Goforth & Lucas Law Partnership, we understand the frustration that many workers feel after suffering an injury while on the job. Those workers simply want to get healthy and return to work. In many situations, the employer's insurance carrier will challenge or deny the workers' compensation claim. A skilled lawyer can negotiate with the insurance company on the injured worker's behalf to ensure recovering the maximum compensation possible.
The most typical bone, muscle and joint injuries, include:
- Muscle strains
- Torn muscles
- Torn ligaments (such as ACL or MCL)
- Ruptured tendons
- Compound fractures
- Muscle sprains
We strive to help our clients attain their pre-accident medical health, and get back to work as soon as possible. Do not hesitate to schedule a confidential consultation with a lawyer at our firm. We work to match your needs with the appropriate medical professional while effectively handling your claim with the insurance company to recover your full and fair monetary compensation.
Governor Jerry Brown recently signed SB 863 which will affect all workers' compensation benefits beginning in 2013. Injured workers must protect their rights under the new law. To level the playing field against insurance carriers and their defense firms you must have aggressive and experienced representation from lawyers who fully understand both sides of your dispute as well as the new laws. If you have suffered personal injury, workers' compensation disability, or are fighting foreclosure because of your injuries, Goforth & Lucas will fight to protect your legal interests and obtain the best possible economic recovery.
