This area is covered by Workman’s Compensation and you may be entitled to compensation benefits. If your injuries were serious but with some accommodation, you could continue to do your job, you have protection under the Americans With Disabilities Act and/or state law. If you are being denied your right to get back to your job after being out on a work-related injury, you may need a good Worker’s Comp Lawyer. Contact our office today for a free consultation.
Remember, a good Worker’s Comp Lawyer understands the current Worker’s Comp Laws. Worker’s compensation is a complicated matter. The laws are complex. Worker’s comp laws also are subject to change. Sometimes you can be rejected from receiving what you’re owed just because you made a minor mistake when filling out a form.
A worker’s comp lawyer knows which forms you need to fill out and how to fill them out properly so you get what you’re entitled to in a timely manner.
A good lawyer will also know how much compensation is actually fair. If you try to do this on your own, you may ask for too little. Even if your claim is small, you have a right to receive a settlement. You have a right to receive proper medical care and have those bills be paid for. You also have the right to receive payment for lost wages, even if those lost wages were only for a few weeks.
Without a worker’s comp lawyer on your side, your chances of getting a fair settlement, no matter how minor or major the injury are slim.
