What Is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation is not a government program, and the payments don’t come from taxpayer dollars. Workers’ compensation is an insurance program, and it is your right to make a claim after an injury. Injuries can happen even under the safest circumstances. Making a claim does not mean your employer did something wrong and will not reflect poorly on your employer.
Workers’ compensation benefits cover expenses accumulated due to your injury, including:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages due to missing work
- Prescription costs
- Rehabilitation and ongoing treatment
- Compensation for loss of abilities or impairment
From start to finish, you will receive regular updates on the status of your case, maximum access to our extensive knowledge when any concern arises, and the facts and options you should consider that can lead to sound decisions. We will take the time to evaluate your case, understand your needs and fight to help you achieve your goals.
