After an injury, your top focus should be a full recovery. However, if you were injured at work, you may quickly realize that getting the compensation and rest you deserve is harder than it should be. With a quality workplace injury lawyer, you can fight for the workers' compensation benefits you deserve.
Workers' compensation law requires the company you work for to take care of you following an injury. Unfortunately, some companies try to find ways around giving employees the full benefits they deserve due to high costs and lost labor. Sometimes, the only way to get the proper compensation is through hiring an expert workplace injury lawyer.
Get Proper Medical Care
After an injury, ensuring you receive full and complete medical care before returning to work is vital to your healthy recovery. Unfortunately, various doctor and hospital bills start adding up quickly. You may also need medical care, such as rehabilitation and training, to prepare you for returning to your career. During this time, you deserve the peace of mind to know that you can make a full recovery without worrying about your job or wages.
Seek Lost Wages
According to workers' compensation law, any time you miss work due to an injury, you should be repaid for that time. However, many companies will work to repay you the least amount possible after you’ve been injured. Hire a knowledgeable personal injury attorney who will fight for the wages you deserve.
Earn Extended Disability
Employers want you to return to the job as quickly as possible. If your injury was serious, you may want to seek extended disability in order to make a full recovery. If you saw a company-appointed doctor who deemed you able to return to work or were denied extended disability, talk to your workplace injury lawyer right away.
