Workplace injuries can happen to anyone at any time, no matter how careful they are. If you have been injured on the job, it is important to know your rights and take steps to protect yourself. Some employers take good care of their injured workers, but we frequently encounter situations where an employer or a representative from the workers’ compensation insurance company has failed to inform the injured worker of all his or her options under state workers’ compensation laws. At BG Law, our team helps injured workers get the medical treatment, benefits and compensation that they and their families deserve.
Most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance policies which will provide financial compensation to an employee who is injured on the job. Benefits from workers’ compensation insurance policies can help replace lost income, pay for medical bills and other related expenses, and compensate injured workers (or their families in the event of death) for impairment or disability resulting from workplace injuries.
However, the process of making a workers’ compensation claim can feel overwhelming and difficult to navigate. For instance, you may want to protect your rights, but are concerned about how your employer will react. You may want to get back to work as soon as possible, but worry about being able to perform your old job duties. You may be missing paychecks and concerned with how you will continue to make ends meet. At the same time, you might be overcome with paperwork and concerned about missing deadlines and statutes of limitation that can affect your ability to bring a workers’ compensation claim.
At BG Law, we understand and we are here to help. Let us guide you through the workers’ compensation process to make sure you are treated fairly, your rights are protected, and you get what you deserve under the law.
Workplace injuries can happen anywhere, but some jobs have more dangerous work conditions than others, making them more likely to result in workplace injuries. These jobs include:
Whether the injury occurred suddenly or was the result of a prolonged occupational exposure, the injured worker may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
