Compensation for Your Injuries
Work injuries can be debilitating and life-changing. They can also be costly. Many people who suffer a work injury must take time off work, miss work, or require medical treatment. All of this can put a strain on your finances. In addition, you may have to deal with permanent disabilities that prevent you from working in your chosen field. This can make it difficult to return to your previous income level.
At James Mckiernan Lawyers, our team of work accident attorneys can help you recover compensation for your injuries. We know how to build strong cases and negotiate with insurance companies. We will fight for you every step of the way.

Who Is Responsible for Your Work Injury?
In order to receive compensation for your work injury, you will need to prove that your employer or the employer of the person who caused the injury is liable. This means that the employer either caused the injury or failed to prevent the injury from occurring. In most cases, the employer is liable for a work injury.
To prove that your employer is liable, you will need to show that:
- You were injured on the job
- The injury was work-related
- The injury was not your fault
- The injury caused damages
It can be difficult to prove that an injury was work-related. You may need to provide medical records, bills, and other documents that prove the injury occurred on the job.
You may also need to prove that the injury caused damages. This can be difficult to prove because many people recover from their injuries. In addition, you may have already been receiving treatment for the injury before the work accident occurred.
