Work Related Injuries

Despite best efforts and strict safety standards, sometimes accidents happen on the job. But every year, workers are involved in work-related accidents, resulting in injuries, permanent disabilities, illnesses and sometimes death. If you or someone you love has been injured in a work related accident, seek the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer at Nicholson Gluckstein Lawyers.

Our lawyers will help you to determine which benefits you’re entitled to from your insurance company. In some cases, we will recommend filing a personal injury lawsuit to recover financial compensation from those responsible for causing you harm.

Many work related injuries stem from working in building or construction including those involving:

  • Falls through holes
  • Falling debris or objects that hit and injure those below
  • Construction work that forces pedestrian traffic into the road, where pedestrians may be hit by a car or fall into a pot hole
  • Construction accidents caused by failure to meet safety standards
  • Construction vehicle accidents
  • Electrical accidents
  • Failure to warn of hazards

Workers compensation laws are extremely complex and constantly changing. It is imperative that you contact us immediately after any such accidents so that we can properly explain the benefits that you are legally entitled to receive.  The injured party and their family should not have to worry about medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. If you are receiving benefits through the Workplace Safety & Insurance Board, our lawyers can also advise you on appealing adverse decisions made by WSIB staff.

Nicholson Gluckstein Lawyers is committed to helping injured workers know their rights with respect to monetary and rehabilitative relief. If you or someone you love was injured while on the job please contact us immediately for a consultation.
