Workers Compensation

If you have been injured while on the job, on company time, at a company function, or while on company property, you may be entitled to workers compensation benefits. These cases are extremely fact specific; however, as experienced workers compensation attorneys, when we take your workers compensation case, we make sure that you receive the all compensation to which you are entitled, including:

  • All reasonable and necessary medical treatment and diagnosis for your injury;
  • Wage payment benefits while you are out of work recovering from your injury;
  • Vocational Rehabilitation to provide you education and training if you are unable to return to your prior work due to a resulting severe disability; and
  • Compensation for the any permanent disability.

If you are injured while on company time, the immediate moments following the event are critical to your case. As soon as you are able, it is imperative that you do the following:

  1. Speak to a workers compensation lawyer. A lawyer is invaluable from the beginning to properly steer you through the process.
  2. Report the injury immediately. Notifying your employer will produce a time and date stamp and help to validate your claim. Your employer holds the insurance policy and is required to file the claim.
  3. Keep detailed records. Retain all records regarding medical and physiological testing types and results like MRI and other diagnostic scans, specialists visited, treatments received, medications prescribed and all bills paid, or due, out of pocket as well as future treatments and costs, including mileage to and from appointments. Be aware of any psychological changes like a fear to return to your job because of your injury.
  4. Do not speak directly to the compensation insurance attorneys or investigators. Refer them to your attorney.
