Injuries Don't Need to be an Accident

Workers’ compensation can cover non-accidental work-related injuries. There are different types of situations where an employee who is injured would be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, even in the absence of a discreet or acute “accident” or “injury.”

Injuries Build Up Over Time

We typically see these types of cases when an employee must come out of the workforce due to repetitive work activities that, over time, become disabling them to the point that they are no longer able to work full duty. As long as we can show that this disability is the result of an occupational illness or disease, or by repetitive work activity that cumulatively, over time, resulted in the inability to work, then there would be a workers’ compensation case.

Angelo Simone and Shelagh McCahey’s dream was a law firm truly built upon a core value of excellence, without compromise. This law firm is the result of that dream. It is also the result of many long conversations about what is truly best for the client, what actually drives truly excellent results, and why many lawyers—even those who have done quite well for themselves—simply don’t hit the target.
