Wyoming Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Serving Injured Workers in Gillette, Newcastle, and Northeastern Wyoming
If you are injured at work or develop an occupational disease, you may be entitled to benefits. Under the Wyoming workers’ compensation system, you can pursue benefits for any work-related injury or illness without having to prove fault. You do not have to prove that your employer or another employee was to blame in order to be eligible for benefits. In fact, you could be responsible for your own injuries and would still be entitled to workers’ comp benefits, with few exceptions.
Serving injured workers and their families across Newcastle and Gillette and the surrounding areas in Northeastern Wyoming, Berger & Brown is here to offer compassionate, knowledgeable counsel in your time of need. If you or someone you love was injured at work or has been diagnosed with a work-related illness, talk to a Wyoming workers’ compensation lawyer at our firm and find out how you can recover the benefits you need.
Call our offices at (307) 257-6368 today and speak with our office manager, Rosie Maynard. She can schedule a free consultation with one of our attorneys.
Workplace Accidents, Injuries & Illnesses
Workers’ compensation covers a wide range of illnesses and injuries. These are covered as long as they are “work-related,” which means they occurred at work or in the scope of one’s employment. The only exceptions may be if drugs and/or alcohol or intentional wrongdoing were involved, on the part of the injured worker.
Our Gillette workers’ comp attorneys represent injured workers in claims involving:
- Work-related auto accidents
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Overexertion injuries
- Assembly line accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Falls from heights
- Construction accidents
- Injuries caused by falling objects
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Exposure to toxins and hazardous materials
- Hearing and eyesight loss
- Heavy machinery malfunction
We can also help with cases involving third-party liability, which may entitle an injured worker to compensation through a personal injury lawsuit, which would cover not only lost wages and medical bills but additional damages like emotional trauma, pain, suffering, and possibly more.
