Job injuries are unavoidable.  If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, chances are you're facing a loss of income, mounting doctor bills, and the risk of losing your job. If you've suffered a workplace injury, you should seek medical attention immediately.  Then, you should contact an attorney to discuss your legal options.


Third Party Job Injuries

If your injury was caused by the negligence or carelessness of someone other than your employer then you are possibly entitled to receive compensation for pain and suffering in addition to your workers' compensation benefits.  Call Packard LaPray right away if this is the case.


If your employer does not carry workers' compensation insurance, then you have the right to pursue compensation for medical bills, loss of income, loss of future income, and pain and suffering.  In this situation, a lawyer's counsel is absolutely necessary.

Product Liability Claims

Product liability claims stem from defective products that cause damage to property or people.  Product liability claims can range from simple property damage issues to wrongful death situations.


The lawyers at Packard LaPray are experienced and know how to handle claims against companies who produce defective products.  Often, these companies are fully aware that their products are defective and dangerous, yet they continue to manufacture and sell to unsuspecting consumers, regularly leading to serious injuries or deaths.


While Packard LaPray handles many different types of product liability cases, a few examples include:
