Personal Injury and Its Threat to Your Income
An injury sustained in an unsafe building, due to a defective product, or negligent operation of a vehicle, can cause numerous debilitating injuries and require one to be bedridden or hospitalized. Time spent in recovery usually means time spent away from work. While many employers provide sick leave, depending on the nature of your injuries, your recovery may require weeks or months of absence. Richard H. Raphael will protect your financial interests resulting from your loss of wages.
