What is a Work Injury?

If you live in or around Charleston and have suffered a work injury, the experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at the Steinberg Law Firm will work swiftly and skillfully to help you secure the injury benefits to which you are entitled. Workers’ compensation law does apply to certain types of injuries sustained under certain conditions. Generally, if you were injured at work and your employer carries workers’ compensation insurance, then you are probably owed benefits. Some of the most common types of work injury are:

  • Brain, spine or neck injury
  • Repetitive stress injury
  • Occupational illness
  • Terminal disease
  • Respiratory condition
  • Electrocution
  • Burns
  • Fractures
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Poisoning
  • Blindness

These work injuries are quite serious. You may be unable to work, unable to perform your job duties, and possibly disabled. You can call us for a free case evaluation, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to find out if you have a workers’ comp or personal injury case, at 843-720-2800. We are personally committed to helping our clients get back on their feet again following a work-related injury. Call us now to see if you have a case.
