Oregon’s workers’ compensation system is a very complex process for injured workers. The legal process is very detailed and unfortunately injured employees carry the burden of proof. The average person who goes in blindly without obtaining help from a highly skilled workers compensation attorney Corvallis OR is often left with a denied claim. If you were hurt on the job, entrust the law firm of Cary Wing Edmunson PC to help secure your legal rights. We offer the strongest advocacy and legal counsel to help you obtain the maximum of the benefits.
There are two areas of claims that qualify for workers’ compensation:
- Accident or injury suffered in the normal course and scope of your employment. This also includes any injuries caused by one of your co-workers or even your own actions, such as dropping a large book or tool on your foot.
- Occupational disease pertaining to hearing loss, lung or stress injury that develops over time from workplace exposures.
If you are employed as a dock worker, in the shipyard, or aboard a ship or fishing vessel, your claim is NOT governed by Oregon’s workers’ compensation system. Instead, we will help you pursue legal remedies through maritime law, the Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), Longshore and Jones Act.
