Workers' compensation can be a very involved and intensive process, particularly if the injury was severe. Most workers are unable to work for at least some amount of time — some permanently. They are entitled to benefits for both the cost of medical treatment (immediate and ongoing) and the wages they lost while being unable to work.
If you have experienced any kind of injury while at work or are suffering from ongoing pain or illness that you believe to be caused by your job, you may be eligible to file a workers' compensation claim and receive benefits. This includes both physical and psychiatric pain.
When a serious or catastrophic injury happens at work, the injured worker and his or her family need the experience and skill of a firm focused solely on workers' compensation claims. These claims can be worth millions of dollars, and insurance companies work with top defense firms to aggressively fight paying the full amount the claim is worth.
The outcome of you workers' compensation case could directly impact your career and your health for years to come. The manner in which your workers' comp claim is handled determines how much money you will receive to get the treatment you need to make the fullest recovery possible.
