Workplace injuries have a devastating impact on the worker, but the problem can be even more far-reaching than that. Sometimes, the person’s entire family will suffer negative impacts due to the accident. This is often the case when the injuries are catastrophic. We know that you don’t want your family members to have to deal with this, but they likely will out of love for you. When it comes to the financial aspects of the situation, workers’ compensation might help.
One of the most important things for you to do when you are hurt at work is to file an accident report. You also need to seek medical care right away. Workers must be covered by workers’ compensation coverage, which pays for the doctor visits and other care necessary due to the on-the-job injury.
Other benefits, such as partial wage replacement if you can’t return to work right away and vocational training if you can’t return to your previous job, are also part of this program. Sometimes, it can be a challenge to get the benefits you deserve. We can help you battle the workers’ compensation system if this is what it takes to get you what’s due to you.
These cases come with some strict timelines and procedures. You should read each notice as it comes in, so you can determine what you need to do. Taking swift action at each step helps ensure that you don’t miss out on benefits just because of a misstep. We are here to help you with these, including any appeals that might be necessary.
