Workers Compensation Lawyers
If you have been injured at work, it is easy to just follow what your employer tells you to do. You may assume that your employer knows best about what you should do next—but this may not always be the case. The truth is that your employer and their insurance company are trying to settle your workers’ compensation claim for as little as possible and get you back to work as fast as possible. In some situations, you may need to take more time to heal, and your case may be worth a lot more than your employer has told you. A workers’ compensation lawyer can be an invaluable resource when you have suffered through a work injury.
The Workers’ Compensation System is Designed to Help YOU!
TELL US ABOUT YOUR ACCIDENT / INJURY
Work injuries can be devastating. In fact, some work place accidents can even take you completely out of the work force. The workers’ compensation system is designed to help you get back on your feet after a work accident. It should also support you while you recover from your injuries and provide you with much needed medical care. The entire system was built with workers like you in mind, and making sure that you get fair compensation following an accident is a top priority.
Some employers or insurance companies take advantage of employees who assume that their employer is looking out for their best interests. You may not be ready to return to work when your employer would like you to, or perhaps you think you need more medical care than your employer has provided. In situations like these, it is a good idea to call in a professional.
An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can take a look at your injuries, your wages, and your unique situation and determine about what you should be receiving in compensation. They can also determine what your case would be worth if it goes to hearing. A workers’ compensation lawyer can help you fight back when you feel that your employer is not treating you fairly.
Recovering in a Work Place Injury
If you are injured at work, you can claim damages related to your injuries. Damages for a workplace injury could include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost past wages
- Lost future wages
- Loss of potential earnings
You can also receive permanent benefits in situations where you are seriously injured under WorkCover. The WorkCover program helps those with seriously debilitating injuries, particularly those where you cannot go back to work doing what you were at the time of the injury. It can also help those who have endured psychological injuries as well. WorkCover will even apply to situations where you had to travel for work and you were injured while traveling, or even while you were on break from your regular employment activities. Hearing loss is also included under WorkCover.
If your employer is not covering your medical bills from your work injury, then you may even have a claim for penalties against your employer.
