Work-related injuries can be devastating for entire families

People who have physically demanding jobs should expect that employers will take steps to ensure that their job duties can be done as safely as possible. There are some hazards that are very obvious for many jobs, and simply ignoring those isn't something that any employer should ever do. We understand that workers never think that they will suffer an injury so bad that it will force them to take time off work. When this does happen, it is shocking for a few reasons.

One thing that happens in these cases is that the worker might need medical care. This can be costly, but they might worry about how they will cover it. The good news about this is that workers' compensation is here to help. This program covers the medical care needed to address the work-related injury.

There is a chance that you will have to take time off of work. This doesn't mean that your bills will stop, so finding a way to pay those bills becomes a priority. If you are going to be off for a while, workers' compensation does have partial wage replacement. This isn't going to provide you with your full wages, but it might be enough to take care of the basics.

While many people get exactly what is due to them from the workers' compensation system, there are times when this doesn't happen. In those cases, you need to be prepared to appeal and fight for what you should receive. We are here to help you build and present your case, but remember that there are time limits for these matters that must be complied with.
