You are entitled to medical treatment and compensation for injuries, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses and other financial burden as a result of workplace-related injuries. It is important that you talk to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to find out what your rights are. Herman & Wells, Attorney at Law, can help you with your workers’ compensation claim.
Worker’s compensation insurance coverage is usually required of employers. Medical treatment for workplace related injuries can include physical therapy, prescription medication, and other materials needed to properly treat your workplace related injury. Should you have a permanent disability, additional compensation is warranted.
If you are injured on the job, notify your employer in writing immediately and keep a copy of the notice! Once this has been done, contact an attorney to evaluate whether you have a potential claim.
Failure of your employer to carry workers compensation leaves them open to direct lawsuits by injured employees for injuries. Furthermore, that employer may find themselves left without certain very important defenses such as comparative negligence.
It is also very important that if someone other than your employer is at fault for your injuries, you may be able to make a claim against that person after workers compensation. Again, it is important to contact an attorney to review your options.
Contact Herman & Wells Attorney at Law, especially if you were injured on the job. You should know what your legal rights are under the law.
Statutes of limitation may apply and can vary by state, so it is best to talk with a qualified attorney soon after an injury to determine if you have a valid claim.
There is no charge for an initial consultation. You owe us nothing unless we recover compensation for you.
