Why Do You Deserve Compensation?
Your injury would not have been incurred if you were not working, and because all jobs have certain risks, your employer has workers’ compensation insurance to compensate employees when these risks become realities. You are entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical benefits, and specific loss payments associated with your accident, including permanent partial or full disability. This insurance also provides dependency benefits to families whose loved one has died because of a workplace injury.
Discuss Your Case with a Tenacious Attorney
It is your right to claim workers’ compensation benefits when you have been injured; however, strict filing requirements and deadlines for workers’ compensation claims make it important to get in touch with a lawyer as quickly as possible, even if you are not sure a claim is necessary.
