Workers’ compensation cases are usually a matter of life or death for the workers who need benefits. Not only do they need access to medical care for their injuries, they also need money to pay bills and live until they are able to go back to work. Unfortunately, the workers’ compensation system isn’t perfect. The flaws mean that some workers will have to fight for the benefits that should have offered them coverage.
We know how important it is for you to get the benefits that you need. You can’t afford to lose your home, your vehicle or other things you’ve worked hard to obtain. When you file your workers’ compensation claim after an accident, you expect that everything will be fine from there.
In a previous blog post, we discussed crushing injuries. These injuries are serious and can lead to considerable time off of work. Take a few moments to think about how devastating having to take months or years off work would be. Most people aren’t financially able to do that comfortably.
We understand that you might need to know your options for getting compensation from the workers’ compensation program. We can help you learn about these, but you must take fast action. Whether you are filing an initial claim or appealing a decision, there are time limits that you must comply with.
You must also ensure that you handle the process appropriately so that your claim isn’t delayed based on errors on your part. We can help you learn about all of these things and work with you to get the benefits to which you are entitled.
