We are known throughout the region for providing truly committed and caring legal services to hard workers who suffer job-related injuries.

Our client was working as a forklift driver when he suffered catastrophic injuries. He was knocked unconscious and sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other serious harm as he fell to the concrete.

Our client also suffered the following injuries:
