What Does a Work Injury Attorney Do? 

Determine the Cause of the Accident

Michael Shelton works with engineers and other experts to investigate injury claims and determine the cause of the accident. His own personal experience working on an oil rig also gives him a unique understanding of work-related injuries that can occur on drilling sites, pipelines, and construction sites.

Identify Negligent Parties

Employers are responsible for maintaining a safe work environment for their employees. If you are injured at work and nobody is at fault, you can file a workers' compensation claim. But if your employer's negligence directly led to your injuries, you may be able to file a personal injury claim.

Hold Insurance Companies Accountable

If your employer's workers' compensation insurance is refusing to compensate you a fair amount, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. A work injury attorney like Michael Shelton can review your compensation benefits and ensure that they are fair and comprehensive. If not, we will negotiate with the insurance company or even take them to court to reach the maximum settlement or verdict possible.
"Mr. Shelton is a superb lawyer with great experience in personal injury cases, such as mine. He has not once let me down and is very supportive in every way. Because of my injury, I have not been able to work, but Mr. Shelton has made sure to help my family financially until my case is over.... I highly recommend Mr. Shelton for anyone who has had an accident at work." Jaime (Former Client)
