Free consultation. No fee unless we win for you.
The state places strict limits on Workers' Compensation claims and, unfortunately, they do not fully replace lost wages, pay medical bills or provide adequate compensation for pain and suffering when you are unable to work. At the Milwaukee offices of Domnitz & Skemp, we have helped Wisconsin and Illinois families to recover compensation beyond Workers' Comp after a serious job accident:
- Construction and Heavy Industry Accidents
- Falls, Burns, Electrocution
- Scaffolding, Lift, Elevator Failures
- Heavy Equipment
- Toxic Exposure
- Repetitive Stress Injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Improper Training, Warning, Labeling, Misrepresentation
- Tools, Vehicles, Safety Equipment
Wisconsin and Illinois employees are protected under Workers' Compensation guidelines that provide for compensation after a job accident, and negligence need not be proven. All employers are required by law to maintain a safe work environment, including proper training and safety equipment. When an accident occurs, you do not sue your employer. Instead, a Workers' Comp claim is typically your sole recourse for compensation.
Third-Party Claims and Defective Product Liability
An injury on the job can often be caused or made worse by defective design, manufacture, or maintenance of vehicles, tools and equipment. A job injury or construction accident attorney from Domnitz & Skemp will thoroughly investigate your accident to identify all liable parties, including contractors and manufacturers, to maximize your compensation even above your Workers' Compensation claim.
You may also be able to collect Workers' Compensation if you were injured while in the course of performing your duties (for example, if you were involved in an auto accident while on company business). This is obviously a very confusing and complicated area of the law that will require the constant guidance of an experienced legal professional. With more than 70 years experience, Domnitz & Skemp understands all applicable personal injury and liability statutes and their interplay with Workers' Compensation claims. We can sort through the confusion to determine the best course to a maximum recovery.
