Know Your Workers Compensation Rights
It is important to speak to an attorney regardless if your workers compensation claim has been accepted or denied. In a workers compensation claim it does not matter who was at fault, unless it was a purposeful self inflicted injury. Clients do not receive pain and suffering under workers compensation claims.
All claims are handled in front of a judge, with no jury present. Workers compensation claims are typically handled within a few months of filing the initial claim. The goal in a workers compensation case is to get the very best medical care available for your injury then receive a settlement for compensation.
Report your injury to a boss or supervisor no matter how trivial the injury;Do not wait more than 30 days to report your injury to your boss.
Ask for and get medical care as soon as possible, should any be necessary;Ask if there is a list of doctors for workers’ comp.If so, choose a doctor from the list;If not, make note that no doctor list exists and ask to see your personal doctor.
If you are unable to go back to work or have injuries that restrict your ability to do the work you did before, give us a call.
