Seeking All Responsible Parties When You Have Been Injured in a Workplace Accident
Accidents happen in the workplace in spite of all the safety precautions put in place by employers. If you have been injured on the job, you can apply for workers' compensation. However, it is possible that there were other factors involved in your accident, factors that may make other parties liable for the damage done to you.
The Law Offices of Vincent J. Scotto, III, is well known for our vigorous pursuit of third-party causes in workers' compensation and personal injury cases. It is one of the hallmarks of our practice, and it allows us to make sure that your potential settlement covers all of the health, pain and suffering issues that are related to your accident. Mr. Scotto also handles workers' compensation cases and is a certified specialist in workers' compensation by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.
Workers' compensation will take care of your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages but those payments stop when you are well enough to return to your job. What if you need continuing care, even after you are able to work again? What if you are unable to make up that lost portion of your income and you fall behind on your bills? That is where we can help.
