Rights of Injured Workers
Protecting Your Rights
Whether you are injured in an accident while at work or if you suffer from a physical disability caused by repetitive motion at your job you have a right to seek workers' compensation benefits. By law, your employer is required to have workers' comp insurance coverage to pay for your medical care, loss of wages, partial or full disability and even death benefits if a worker is injured or killed while on the job. Your employer may not provide you with all the information you need to file a claim. We can explain everything you need to know.
If you do need to file a claim, we will help you get it filed on time and with all the necessary paperwork to prevent any unnecessary disqualification or denial of your claim. Filing for workers' compensation benefits is similar to any other insurance claim; the insurance companies often deny or reduce your benefits in valid injury claims. By having an experienced attorney on your side, it becomes much more difficult for them to take undue advantage or offer a settlement that is too small.
Our firm can help you!
Among the many benefits you may be entitled to receive are:
- 100% medical coverage for your injuries
- Lost wages payments while you recover
- Temporary or full disability coverage if you cannot return to work
- Death benefits for the dependents of any worker killed

The workers' comp laws were written to provide injured workers with full medical coverage and other benefits. You are entitled to receive them under law. We can evaluate your situation and advise you how to proceed in getting a fair settlement after an injury, illness or death of a loved one at work.
