Approximately half of the U.S. workforce is female. While women tend to suffer fewer catastrophic and fatal injuries on the job than men, they are subjected to more harassment and violence in the workplace. Regardless of the type of work injury you suffer, you have the right to file for workers’ compensation benefits and/or third-party damages, when appropriate.
The Law Office of Stephen J. Dennis provides experienced workers’ comp representation to women injured in Rhode Island. At our firm, you will work with an attorney who fights vigorously for your right to receive medical and wage replacement benefits. We are not afraid to take on any employer, no matter its size or net worth.
Compassionate with Clients, Aggressive with Opponents
Women are harassed on the job more than men and are more often the victims of workplace assault and homicide. They account for approximately 63 percent of workplace violence victims, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics study. Sexual harassment and physical or sexual assault can result in PTSD or other anxiety disorders. We can help you file workers’ compensation for psychological injuries.
The most common causes of physical on-the-job injuries to women are work-related car accidents, falls, exposure to toxins and overexertion. Female workers may suffer broken bones, brain and spinal cord injuries, burns, occupational diseases, joint injuries and repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis.
