Peru Work Accident Attorneys Who Fight For Your Rights

Our lawyers help injured workers get the benefits they deserve

You may have never thought you'd need a work accident lawyer, but accidents happen at workplaces every day and can cause serious injuries. If you've been hurt in the workplace, you need an attorney to help you get the full amount of workers' compensation benefits you need and deserve. Schweickert Ganassin Krzak Rundio, LLP can help.

A work accident can happen in many ways. It may involve heavy lifting, falling objects, a slip and fall, toxic exposure, electrocution or workplace violence. The result in each case is that a worker is left with a serious injury. Medical expenses can become overwhelming quickly, and the worker may be unable to return to work for some time.

While some jobs carry a higher risk of injury or illness or others, a work accident can occur in any industry, including:

  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Food production
  • Health care
  • Education
  • Sales
  • Farming
  • Trucking

If you've been hurt in a work accident in Peru, you are entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits. These benefits cover medical expenses and provide partial lost wages when you are unable to return to work. It doesn't matter how long you've been working for that employer or who how the accident happened.

The claims process can be complicated. Employers can challenge claims. Insurance companies can question the extent of your injuries and the need for certain types of treatment. You may even be pressured to return to work even though you have not fully recovered from the injury you suffered.

We have a thorough knowledge of the claims process and know how to handle challenges to your claim. Our attorneys are committed to moving your claim forward and getting the results you need.
