Traumatic Work Injuries

By their very nature, construction sites and industrial workplaces are rife with opportunities for employees to be injured. Heavy equipment, use of power tools and lifting heavy objects all often contribute to conditions that culminate in traumatic injuries. Other types of workplaces, such as stores and offices, are also sometimes the scene of serious back and head injuries, burns and broken bones.

When I injured my back at work my employer denied that my injury occurred at work. Because of this they would not pay me disability benefits and pay for my doctors’ bills. Since my back injury was so serious that it required surgery I could not work. My not having a pay check placed my family in a bad situation.
Although many of the issues in my case were complex, Attorney Sousa constantly met with me to explain what was going on with my case. He answered all my questions. Without the legal assistance I received from Sousa & Minogue, LLC , I do not know where my family would be today.
