Can you be fired if your injury forces you to miss work? We can answer your questions and help you protect your interests throughout the legal process.
Common Workplace Injuries And Accidents
Your case is unique. Your injuries and the impact they have on your life are specific to you. However, certain types of accidents and injuries occur frequently in a work setting. They include:
