For people who work hard, their paycheck is a lifeline that provides them with the things they need to live. Without this, they are likely facing a tough road that will be filled without many of life’s necessities. Sadly, this is exactly what might happen to some workers who are injured at work. We understand that you just want to go to work and make an honest living. When you have an accident in the process, you expect that you will be taken care of.
The workers’ compensation system in this state is one that is meant to protect workers and employers alike. It helps to cover the cost of medical care for the injuries for the worker, but the employer won’t have to cover these out-of-pocket. Instead, the insurance policy picks them up.
Another way that these policies protect everyone involved is that they can provide a worker with partial wage replacement if they have to take time off work to heal. Again, the policy picks this up so the employer doesn’t have to. We know that most workers can’t take unpaid leave to deal with an injury, so these benefits are critical.
Unfortunately, workers’ compensation doesn’t always work as it should. Instead, some employees have to fight for the benefits they are due when they are injured. We are here to help workers who are injured on the job. Whether the issue is an injury from an accident or a cumulative trauma problem, we can work with you to pursue the benefits that you are due.
