Do You Need Workers' Compensation Benefits?

Most people go to their jobs and work hard, believing that their employers will protect them in the event of a work injury. Unfortunately, when a workplace accident happens, that belief is often put to the test. Injured workers find they have to navigate a maze of red tape in order to get the benefits they need. They may even be denied workers' compensation benefits or have their benefits cut off before they are fully recovered.

Types Of Workers' Compensation Benefits

The primary types of workers' compensation benefits are medical benefits and wage benefits.

Medical benefits: You are entitled to full treatment for injuries you suffered at work. Not only does that include coverage of emergency room treatment and any necessary surgeries, but also physical therapy and follow-up care.

Wage benefits: You are entitled to compensation for a percentage of the wages you miss out on because you are unable to work. The amount is based on your previous paychecks. This issue can get complicated if your hours and paychecks vary from week to week.

With more than three decades of experience, we know the steps that need to be taken to get you the benefits you need. Whenever possible, we will also look for additional sources of compensation. For example, depending on the nature of the work injury, you may also be able to file a personal injury claim for further compensation.
