If you’ve been injured on the job, you need to be compensated for lost wages and medical bills. You can do this in a way that does not jeopardize your job or your career, as long as you have the right legal team helping you.
What is workers’ compensation? Should I file for it?
Workers’ Compensation is insurance paid by an employer to cover medical care and benefits for employees who are injured or disabled because of their job. Common kinds of workplace injuries covered include:
- Slips & Falls
- Back Injuries
- Fallen Object Injuries
- Cuts / Lacerations
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Repetitive Stress Injuries
- Broken Bones
Why is it important to talk to an attorney about your injury at work?
Be aware, though, that there are limits to workers’ compensation. Remember that the insurance company your employer uses has the sole goal of minimizing the cost of your claim. They do not care whether you have been seriously hurt. To them, you only represent a potential loss. For that reason alone you should speak to an attorney to know your rights and to see if you are eligible for further compensation.
