We recently discussed the serious nature of on-the-job spinal cord injuries. These aren't the only type of injury that can occur at work that is catastrophic. For many workers, head injuries, being crushed by heavy equipment or items, broken bones or amputations are all very real and serious possibilities.
One thing that is troublesome about many work-related injuries is that they are preventable. There is a chance that the worker will be unable to continue working due to the nature of the problem. For some people, this ends their entire career. This is hard to fathom, but it is a stark reality for many. It can mean they don't have the income to pay their bills. They might have to try to scrape to cover even the basics. The cost of medical care might be frightening, but workers' compensation can certainly help pay for this and possibly other expenses.
We know that you might not be very familiar with the workers' compensation system. We can help you find out what benefits you should be eligible to receive. There isn't any reason why you shouldn't try to push to get these. Instead, getting your claim filed right away might help you get the benefits that you need quickly so that you aren't trying to do without medical care.
Sometimes, getting the workers' compensation that you are entitled to isn't as easy as it should be. There are times when workers will be offered less than what they deserve. These cases often require an appeal, which can seem like a taxing undertaking for some people. We are here to help you get the compensation that you need, including medical care and partial wage replacement.
