A: If this is a job you are hired to do, then it would likely be a workers' compensation claim. If this is just something you were doing, you may need to consult with a personal injury lawyer for further help. Virtually every PI lawyer gives free consultations, your easiest route would be to call and ask. Hope this helps!
