Are You Eligible for Workers' Compensation?
In order to collect compensation for a workplace injury, you must demonstrate that your injury happened while you were at work, or performing duties related to your work.
Some examples of work-related injuries that may be covered include:
- Slip & falls
- Machinery accidents
- Occupational illnesses or exposure to dangerous chemicals
- Transportation accidents
- Workplace violence
Worker's Compensation Benefits
As an employee, you understand the importance of hard work. You know that your income, future, and your success depend on your ability to maintain your occupation. If you suffer an injury at work, you may not be able to continue working while you recover. When confronted with a work place injury, even the most dedicated employees face financial hardship due to an absence of work coupled with the expense of mounting medical bills.
If you were injured at work through no fault of your own, you may be able to recover benefits for:
- Your medical expenses, including doctor's visits, hospital bills, medication, physical therapy, etc.
- Lost wages
- Death benefits
Unlike a personal injury lawsuit, a workers' compensation claim is not the same as suing your employer. By retaining our attorneys, you may be able to seek the money that you deserve and need by filing a workers' compensation claim with a workers' compensation insurance company.
