Types of Injuries

Injuries in the workplace can be specific events or accidents but they also include injuries that happen over time due to repetitive physical stress or by the environment itself.  These types of injuries include:

  • carpal tunnel syndrome

  • back injuries

  • heart disease

  • breathing problems 

  • arthritis

  • hypertension

  • lung cancer

  • exposure to toxic fumes or chemicals

Don't go it alone.​

Most workers comp claims are handled by an insurance company attorney.  They may insist that they have your best interests in mind but they are well paid not to pay you.  At The Norton Firm, we have your best interests in mind.  Contact us immediately so that we can help you.   

The Norton Firm will provide a limited free consultation.  We will come to you if needed.  It is our mission to help you get through this difficult time.  

​If you are injured while working at a company function or on company property there are important steps that must be taken right away.  

  • Contact a workers compensation lawyer.  We can help to steer you through the process
  • Report the injury immediately.  It is important that your employer produce a date and time stamp to validate your claim.  They hold the insurance policy and are required to file the claim information.
  • Keep accurate and detailed records.  Retain all medical records and billing records.  Be aware of and note any psychological changes you may experience such as a fear of returning to your job due to the injury.
  • Don't speak directly to the insurance investigators or attorneys.  Refer them to us.  We will protect your rights.

By evaluating your case thoroughly we can determine whether it falls under the category of Partial Disability, Total Temporal Disability, Total Permanent Disability or a coverage of medical bills only.  These relate to your ability to work again, how soon and whether you are capable of returning to your prior position.
