Workers’ Comp & OSHA
Workers’ compensation claims are about two things: obtaining compensation for your injury and maintaining your employment. Personal injury attorneys have limited knowledge of employment law and will often refuse to help you keep your job by getting a disability accommodation or light duty designation. Yet continuing your employment may be more financially important than winning an injury lawsuit. You need a law firm that can help you get workers’ comp benefits while keeping your job secure.
Cross Law Firm, S.C., is that kind of firm. We are able to handle the workers’ compensation aspects of the case to maximize the benefits you receive, while at the same time showing that you can still perform your job if you are given reasonable accommodation. With more than 35 years of legal experience, you can trust in our ability to get positive results in work injury cases.

Creating Safe Workplaces
Every employee is entitled to work in a place that is free from safety and health hazards. If you are working in an unsafe environment, we can help. Our attorneys will guide you through the process of making formal complaints with OSHA and your employer to help ensure that your working conditions improve and your concerns are properly addressed.
We work to coordinate damages awards for unsafe working conditions under Wisconsin’s Workers’ Compensation statutes with the U.S. Department of Labor’s OSHA safety standards for best results.
Employers sometimes fire or demote employees who call OSHA or make internal complaints concerning health and safety. This is called retaliation, and it is illegal. Complaints of retaliation must be filed with OSHA within 30 days of the event, so do not hesitate to speak with our legal team. We will be happy to meet with you and formulate the best plan to achieve your goals.
