Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys take the time to meet with our clients and learn the full extent of their injuries. That way, we are able to determine the best way to pursue the compensation our clients are entitled to receive. If you were injured in your workplace, turn to our firm for a consultation. If we take your case, the following are some questions we typically examine:
- What lead to your injuries? Who caused them?
- Are any injuries permanent?
- How much work have you missed? How much longer will you be out?
- Do you know your employer’s authorized panel of physicians?
- Have you been assigned a disability rating?
- Have you had surgery or will you need it in the future?
- Was a dangerous product involved in your accident?
- Were you hurt in a work-related auto accident?
With this information, we can determine whether to pursue a personal injury claim against a party other than your employer or a coworker.
What are typical workers’ compensation benefits?
Your employer’s workers’ comp insurance policy will pay for your medical bills with authorized treating physicians as well as rehabilitation costs and a portion of your lost wages. The workers’ comp policy will pay your doctor for treatment related to the on-the-job accident. The coverage also will pay for prescription medication, necessary travel expenses, among other types of treatment.
Your income loss replacement benefit will be two-thirds of your average weekly wage (with a cap of $575 per week). This benefit applies to accidents that occurred on or after July 1, 2016.
