Injuries suffered in the workplace are usually covered by an employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. In cases involving gross negligence on the part of an employer or other third party, however, you may be able to recover additional damages through a civil lawsuit. This is especially important in cases involving serious injuries that may result in long-term disability, physical pain and emotional suffering not covered by workers’ compensation benefits.At Shea & Shea – A Professional Law Corporation, we assemble a team of forensic experts to begin investigating the facts that prove liability so that our clients can recover maximum compensation. At the same time, we work with you and physicians to make sure you have all the medical treatment and diagnostic tests you need for a full recovery. If you would like to discuss your case with a member of our team, call our San Jose office today at (408) 292-2434.
