Airline workers face job hazards daily, many of which can lead to work-related injuries. If you have been injured on the job working for an airline company, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Obtaining benefits can be complex — it requires a comprehensive knowledge of the legal process. Workers’ compensation claims in the airline industry are further complicated as employees are entitled to a combination of benefits under workers’ compensation law as well as compensation under the terms of their union contracts.
Partnering with a skilled lawyer who will represent your interests will ensure that you have the greatest chance of receiving and maximizing benefits.
