Workplace Accident Attorneys – Personal Injury Law
If you have been injured on the job, you may be aware that you have a valid workers’ compensation claim to cover medical expenses and replace lost wages when you are unable to return to work. What you may not realize is that you and your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer are now entering into a potentially adversarial relationship.
You need full, fair compensation to cover your expenses and make up for the time that you have to take off work. The insurer, on the other hand, will seek to prevent the payout of claims that the company considers avoidable.
Therefore, you will need to be prepared to stay vigilant and document evidence of your good faith efforts to get well and return to work if possible, as quickly as possible. More here
An attorney on your side can help ensure that you receive full compensation for medical treatment:
Medical bills quickly add up. Document evidence that you are seeking treatment promptly and complying with your doctor’s advice.
You may think that you cannot get medical treatment because you don’t have sufficient health insurance. Few doctors, however, will treat you until they are reassured that they will be paid by a workers’ comp insurer.
The insurance company may seemingly circumvent requirements that they pay for medical treatment by refusing to authorize treatment — essentially stopping you from being treated.
I have more than 30 years of experience handling workers’ compensation claims on behalf of injured employees. I am well versed in the best strategies for ensuring that you get the medical treatment that you need, can see the doctors that you prefer, and can document your efforts to reach maximum recovery through compliance with medical treatment plans.
Weekly Benefits When You Are Unable to Work
If you have not signed agreements and had an Award entered by the Workers’ Compensation Commission, you also need to demonstrate to the Workers’ Compensation Commission that you are making a good faith effort to go back to work if possible. The insurer may allege that you are voluntarily working at less than full capacity or that you have failed to market yourself in search of another job that would pay close to what you were earning before your accident. Marketing your job capacity is a very difficult and complex area and you need to understand what is required of you to market your remaining work capacity.
I have helped many workers’ compensation claimants keep the wolves from the door and continue receiving the benefits they were entitled to receive. If you were denied compensation on the basis that you should be able to work, contact me to schedule a consultation. Check this website
