I’ve been hurt on the job. Do I have a Workers’ Compensation case?
Workers compensation is a no fault system which provides benefits for injuries at work. This means that so long as you suffered an injury at work, we don’t care whose fault it was: the employers, your own fault, a co-workers, someone other than your employer. If your injury happened at work, you should get workers compensation benefits for your injury.
How much money am I going to get for my workers’ comp injury?
Permanent Disability is a benefit that compensates you for your injury. At the end of your case, your treating doctor or evaluating doctor (Agreed Medical Evaluator or Qualified Medical Evaluator) will write a report describing your “permanent disability.” This happens after your condition is “permanent and stationary.”
Can an attorney help me get the medical care that I need in my workers’ comp case?
In most cases. Too many injured workers get referred to company doctors and clinics who are unsympathetic at best. Additionally, the insurance company will use utilization review to deny and limit medical treatment. A workers’ compensation attorney will evaluate your case and injuries and help you select an appropriate treating doctor.
