Workers compensation provides employees with monetary assistance if they suffer an occupation-related injury or illness.
Workers' compensation provides money for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Vocational training
- Mental and emotional harm
- Death benefits, such as funeral expenses, if the situation ended in the death of the employee
Employees can receive funds once their injury makes them unable to earn full wages for three consecutive days or if their injury requires medical attention. The amount they receive is roughly 75% of their spendable earnings per week.
If you have been injured at work and believe you are entitled to workers compensation, the right attorney can make all the difference in recovering the maximum benefits you deserve under the law. A workers compensation attorney will be able to advise you about the procedures for protecting your workers compensation benefits, and for guarding against the early termination of benefits.
Even if you receive the maximum amount of workers compensation benefits, it may not be enough to cover all the expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury. A third party—such as a manufacturer, contractor or someone else whose actions may have been careless—may also be liable for your injuries.
We are committed to helping injured workers obtain monetary and rehabilitative relief.
