Workers compensation laws are designed to provide prompt and reasonable income as well as medical benefits to victims of work-related injuries. More than the pain, there are the economic consequences of lost wages — unpaid medical bills and the mounting costs of supporting your family in daily life. Workers compensation is also responsible for paying disability benefits that can last up to 500 weeks.
It is not necessary to prove negligence in a Workers' Compensation claim. However, understanding how the injury occurred may have an impact on diagnosis and treatment. Our firm is familiar with the common causes of workplace injury, including falls from heights, slip-and-falls, lifting and bending injuries, fires, explosions, machinery injuries, vehicle accidents, and flying or falling objects. We work with your doctors to make sure you get the right medical treatment.
Many initial applications for Workers' compensation are denied the first time. Other legal actions are often necessary to get you the benefits you depend on. It takes an experienced lawyer who has effectively managed workers' compensation cases many times before to achieve the best possible results.
