Protecting You as a Worker: Employment Law and Workplace Rights
You go to work every day to provide for your family, but your job is more than a paycheck. You may spend years of your life contributing your time and talents to a company, and your work may be an important part of your identity and sense of self. In addition, your job is crucial for your financial well-being, your credit score and your ability to live the life you want.
When you go to work, you are protected by a network of federal and state laws. These laws were established by our forebears so today we can enjoy a safe place to work. Unfortunately, not all employers are careful in providing a safe and secure workplace. Your workplace rights may be violated and you may need to speak with an attorney versed in employment law if you’re dealing with issues such as:
- Contract disputes
- Workplace sexual harassment
- Work accidents
- Discrimination claims
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations
- Wrongful termination
- Employer retaliation
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Unsafe workplaces
Any time your rights as an employee are violated, every area of your life can be affected. A workplace rights violation or employment law issue can affect your career, your self-esteem, your ability to earn a living, your emotions, your relationships, your benefits and your very future.
At McCarthy Weisberg Cummings, we understand there is a lot on the line when there’s a problem in the workplace. If you have been affected by a workplace rights violation or an employment law dispute, contact our caring law team to find out what laws protect you and what steps we can take today to protect your livelihood.
Personal Injury Law
Being injured is about a lot more than just pain. In many cases, serious injuries devastate a life. A permanent, serious injury can affect your relationships and your ability to go to work. Medical bills from this type of injury can add up and create money worries while the stress of the situation can lead to depression and even serious trauma.
A serious injury can happen to anyone at any time. The results can be catastrophic, but the law does allow you to seek compensation in the form of a civil claim. A personal injury legal claim allows you to pursue damages from any parties contributing to your injuries — even if multiple parties were at fault. If someone caused your injuries, you may be able to seek damages for medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of companionship, property damage and more.
Personal injury claims may be filed in a number of cases:
- Personal injury
- Bus accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Sexual abuse
- Public transportation accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Catastrophic injuries
- Car accidents
- Premises liability
- Inadequate security
- Pedestrian accidents
- Dangerous conditions
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents
- Workplace injuries
- Nursing home abuse and injuries, as well as injuries sustained in retirement homes, assisted living facilities and other facilities
- Train accidents
- DUI/drunk driving accidents
- Social security disability
At McCarthy Weisberg Cummings, we have handled these and other personal injury claims. In many cases, plaintiffs don’t realize they have a claim. Sometimes, someone’s negligence may not be obvious. For this reason, if you have suffered a serious injury, it is a good idea to speak to a personal injury attorney. An attorney can look at your case from a legal perspective to let you know your rights.

We can explain your rights and can evaluate your potential claim. There is no cost and no obligation. Our goal is to help you clarify the situation and to advocate on your behalf if you decide to pursue a claim.
