Helping You Navigate The Workers’ Compensation Process
Hundreds of thousands of workers all across the nation are injured on the job every single day. Under the law, workers’ compensation benefits are available to employees who sustain injuries or become ill while working on the job. Employees are entitled to receive monetary compensation for medical care, rehabilitation expenses, vocational training and lost wages among others.
However, the process is much more complex than simply filing a claim and receiving money. Employees seeking benefits must follow intricate rules and procedures and rigid deadlines. Any slight deviation from the requirements could bar recovery.
If you have been injured, we can help steer you in the right direction to make sure the appropriate steps and procedures are followed.
