Accidents at work are nightmares for hardworking men and women. When these do occur, some workers might try to hide the injury because they are worried about keeping their job. This isn’t something that should occur because the worker might suffer more harm trying to keep on working at a normal pace.
We understand the difficulties that you might have with coming forward about your injury. Ultimately, you need to think about your health and well-being. If your injury requires medical care, you need to get that care as soon as possible.
One way that you might be able to get the care that you need is to alert your employer so that you can get covered under workers’ compensation. This is something that can help you get the medical care you need. If your injury requires you to take time off of work, workers’ compensation might also help you to get wage replacement benefits that cover a portion of your average wage.
The workers’ compensation program is something that might be difficult to navigate. You have to pay attention to the paperwork that you receive in connection with your claim. These documents might contain important time limits and deadlines. Letting these pass by could mean that you don’t get the benefits that you need.
We can help you deal with the workers’ compensation system so that you can seek out the benefits you deserve. This might mean that you need to file appeals if the rulings aren’t correct. We can also help you with these appeals, but remember that time is of the essence when you are handling these matters.
