Personal Injury Lawyer Help

Friend got injured at work due to someone else's negligence; someone wasn't paying attention and crushed their foot under some heavy machinery, it's going to require multiple surgeries, skin grafts, nerve damage, etc. Company is going the workers comp route but obviously they're going to lowball the out of what will be a permanent disability.

I got my leg crushed at work but thankfully it only caused some missed work and a few weeks of pain and crutches and it was all good. If I were in their shoes though, I'd be looking for a huge settlement or continuous payout because there's no telling the physical therapy it'll require or the complications skin grafts and neurosurgery will cause down the road.

Therefore looking for recommendations on lawyers who will make sure their compensated for their pain, suffering, and ensuring they can address any future problems that arise.

Get ready to be raped. 30% is the standard take and it goes up from there. So you need to know the limits of liability involved before doing any settlements to see if it is even worth it. They have insurance you can get the information from them on their liability limits.

I used Norris and Cantu but Bryan above is correct, all about the policy limits, and it takes forever to settle.

Might as well mentally prepare your friend for the likely reality that no amount of money will ever be good enough and will never cause a cessation of pain/symptoms. I was almost killed by someone elseís negligence in 1996, and Iíve seen some horrific work injuries in my time in the oilfield...I wish your friend a speedy recovery, hope for minimal long term impact, and advise them to seek financial guidance if they do end up with a settlement.

Pain and suffering are not compensated in a workplace injury. Only lost wages.

And if they suffer a permanent disability I remember guys getting hurt at work and they could eventually come back but they had permanent damage and collected a check from the company for as long as I continued to work there and they said those payments were in perpetuity
