Workplace Accidents


When Maine workers get hurt, we get them back on their feet

Maine Workplace Accident Lawyers

Mainers take pride in their work. In exchange for their time, effort, and commitment, they expect to be paid fairly and treated with respect by their employers. But companies owe their employees more than a paycheck. No matter where you work – at a construction site, on a factory floor, behind a desk or behind the wheel – your employer owes you a safe place to do your job.

Unfortunately, employers in Maine and throughout the country too often fail to meet this obligation. Even in relatively safe work environments, employees can still sustain severe work-related injuries. In 2017 alone, at least 2.8 Americans were hurt on the job and 5,147 workers lost their lives while working. If that is not bad enough, experts believe the number of workplace injuries is likely much higher still because many workers don’t report workplace injuries due to fear of losing their jobs or other retaliation by employers.

Over a century of obtaining full compensation for injured Maine workers

When Maine workers suffer work-related injuries, they need and deserve compensation to make up for their lost wages, cover their medical bills, and provide for their families while they recover from their injuries.

For over a century, the workplace injury lawyers at Berman & Simmons have helped and protected countless individuals who experienced serious injuries or illnesses at work. We continue to build on this proud legacy by fighting every day for the rights and well-being of our injured clients, working tirelessly to obtain the full amount of compensation available for their work-related losses.

We assist workers in getting compensation for losses related to every type of workplace accident and injury, including losses arising from:

  • Construction accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Exposure to toxic or hazardous materials
  • Heavy machinery accidents
  • Transportation accidents
  • Electrocution
  • Explosions and fires
  • Falling objects
  • Repetitive motion
  • Workplace violence

We make sure you get all of the compensation you deserve

Many employees believe that if they are injured at work, filing a claim for Maine workers’ compensation benefits may be the only way to get their medical bills paid and their lost income replaced. In some circumstances, however, an injured employee may have a personal injury claim for compensation against individuals or companies other than their employer if those parties contributed to their accident or injury. That’s where we come in.

Since workers’ compensation benefits alone may not cover all the losses suffered by an employee a workplace accident, claims against “third-parties” can be critically important to ensure full compensation. Some damages that might be obtainable in a personal injury lawsuit, such as compensation for pain and suffering, are unavailable in workers’ compensation claims.
